Morikawa is last man standing in tight PGA Championship
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - American Collin Morikawa has become a first-time major champion by winning at San Francisco's Harding Park.
The 23-year-old closed with a 6-under 64 to win the PGA Championship by two strokes over Paul Casey and third-round leader Dustin Johnson. Morikawa was tied with Casey before an eagle on the par-4 16. He closed with consecutive pars for a 13 under total.
Johnson fell behind with a bogey on the par-5 14. He also was second in last year’s PGA Championship, three months after his runner-up finish at the Masters.
Jason Day, Matthew Wolff, Bryson DeChambeau, Tony Finau (FEE'-now) and Scottie Scheffler shared third at minus-10.
