PGA Championship: Xander Schauffele makes major history with dramatic win over Bryson DeChambeau at Valhalla | Golf News

Xander Schauffele secured a maiden major victory after a final-hole birdie saw him create golfing history with a dramatic one-shot win at the PGA Championship.

Schauffele took a share of the lead with Collin Morikawa into the final day at Valhalla and found himself two strokes ahead heading into the back-nine, only for Bryson DeChambeau and Viktor Hovland to jump into contention.

Hovland was within one of the lead until a three-putt bogey at the final hole, where DeChambeau made a brilliant birdie to close a blemish-free 64 and move alongside Schauffele on 20 under.
