LAST YEAR: Jimmy Walker captured his first major title, sinking a 3-foot par putt on the last hole to cap a 3-under-par 67 and hold off defending champion Jason Day of Australia by one stroke on the Lower Course at Baltusrol in Springfield, N.J. Walker sank an 8-foot birdie putt on the 17th hole to take a three-stroke lead, but Day reached the green on the par-5 closing hole in two with a powerful 2-iron shot and sank a 15-foot eagle putt to also finish off a 67. Walker joined Danny Willett of England (Masters), Dustin Johnson (U.S. Open) and Henrik Stenson of Sweden (Open Championship) as first-time major winners in 2016 by two-putting from 35 feet. It was his sixth PGA Tour victory, all since reaching the age of 35 in 2014, but he has not won this season while battling lyme disease and mononucleosis.
