Sunday’s Championship was intense, wire-to-wire, coming down to the very last putt. After a rainy weekend and the longest final day of a PGA Championship in 64 years, Walker sealed the deal hitting par on the 18th (the 36th hole he’d played that day). As a result, he has moved up from 29th to 4th in the Ryder Cup standings.
Bringing the 37-pound Wanamaker trophy with him to Pier 25, Walker Mini Golfed alongside groups of Downtown Day Campers enjoying their weekly field trip to the Pier. The campers were a bit star struck, watching excitedly between their own puts. Bob Townley, Founder and Executive Director of Manhattan Youth, was delighted to host the champ on the Pier’s mini course. “They’re all Par 2′s!” Townley assured Walker.
