Collin Morikawa wins PGA Championship, golf's first major since coronavirus pandemic shut sport down

It was the first major golf tournament to be played in 2020 after the coronavirus pandemic forced the PGA Tour to change-up its schedule

Collin Morikawa held off Paul Casey, Jason Day and Bryson DeChambeau to win the PGA Championship at TPC Harding Park in San Francisco on Sunday, finishing with a 13-under par for the tournament and 6-under in the final round.

It was Morikawa’s first major title. He did not play at the Masters Tournament or The Open Championship last year and finished tied for 35th at the U.S. Open last year.

BRYSON DECHAMBEAU SNAPS DRIVER ON SEVENTH-HOLE TEE SHOT AT PGA CHAMPIONSHIP

The 23-year-old shot back-to-back 69s in the first two rounds of the tournament before finishing the third round with a 65 to keep him within striking distance of the leaders.

Morikawa’s eagle on the 16th hole was what gave the young golfer the edge in the latter part of the round. On a par 4, he drove the ball 7 feet from the pin and nailed the eagle shot. It ultimately proved to be the difference-maker and what set him apart from Casey.

He finished the fourth round with a 64.
