Texan Jimmy Walker was just moseying along Sunday afternoon, looking at ease despite his name resting atop the leaderboard on the final day of the 98th PGA Championship and world No. 1 Jason Day and reigning British Open champion Henrik Stenson on his heels.

The chaotic week full of storms, delays and odd decisions by tournament officials was behind Walker and the weight of trying to win his first major title wasn’t an issue. With nine pars to open his final 18 at waterlogged and muddy Baltusrol Golf Club, a comfortable, confident Walker was right where he started – winning the tournament and the battle with his nerves.

Then he delivered, fittingly enough, two lightning bolts that gave him breathing room on the back nine. And then one last par at the end got his name etched onto the Wanamaker Trophy and into history.
