What’s in Jimmy Walker’s PGA Championship-winning bag?
We take a look at the clubs which helped Jimmy Walker to a maiden Major title at the PGA Championship.
American Jimmy Walker relied on the new Titleist 917 driver to fire his way to a maiden major victory at the PGA Championship.
The 37-year-old Ryder Cup star held off a late charge from world number one Jason Day as he parred the 18th for a one-shot victory.
Solid driving was the foundation for Walker’s win although he did get fortunate on a couple of occasions and showed great recovery skills with either his Titleist 716 MB irons, Titleist 915Fd 5 wood or Titleist Vokey SM6 wedges.
The bunker hole out on 10 was arguably the key moment of the final round as it gave him some breathing space down the stretch.
It was a good final round on the greens too as he went bogey-free, holing some crucial putts for par on the front nine. The Scotty Cameron GSS 350 prototype was in fine working order throughout the week.
