SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Collin Morikawa has won the PGA Championship with one of the greatest shots hardly anyone witnessed at a major.

On a wild day at Harding Park with seven players tied for the lead, the Cal-Berkeley graduated chipped in for birdie to take the lead and then hit driver to 7 feet for eagle that clinched it. Morikawa closed with a 64. That’s the lowest final round by a PGA champion in 25 years.

And it made the Californian a major champion at age 23. This was the first major without spectators because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
