It was a stroke ahead of what Jason Day had previously achieved who had also been a defending champion in the event.

Henrik Stenson, who was winner of Open Championship ended up with a score of 67 after the three rounds, but he lost the final opportunity when the 15th hole was a double bogey. Daniel Summerhays claimed the third place in the championship. Branden Grace, Hideki Matsuyama and Brooks Koepka got the fourth place. Walker was able to hold off Day’s surges which were a gruelling challenge, but eventually he was successful.
