SPRINGFIELD, N.J. — Jimmy Walker shot a bogey-free, 3-under-par 67 Sunday to win the PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club, becoming the fourth first-time major champion this year.

Walker, who was in the lead after every round, finished at 14-under 266, one shot ahead of defending champion Jason Day who closed with a 67 that included an eagle 3 on No 18.

Daniel Summerhays was third at 10 under after a 66 while there was a three-way tie for fourth at 9 under.

There were 10 golfers, including Walker and Day, who played 36 holes Sunday after the third round was suspended Saturday after heavy rains saturated the course.
