Xander Schauffele's PGA Championship-winning putt

Watch the putt that helped Xander Schauffele win his first major championship in the video below.

Xander Schauffele wins 2024 PGA Championship with walk-off birdie

It finally was Xander Schauffele's time Sunday, as he sank a birdie putt on the 72nd hole to win by one shot over Bryson DeChambeau. Schauffele ended at 21 under, the lowest 72-hole score in the history of major championships.

Bryson DeChambeau birdies 18th to tie for lead

There's a tie at the top: Bryson DeChambeau capped his final round with a birdie on the 18th to end with a 7-under 64. That birdie helped him improve to 20 under for the tournament, tying Xander Schauffele, who was on Hole 17 when DeChambeau's final putt dropped.

PGA Championship fan shows no fear, wrangles snake off the course

Indiana Jones hates snakes.

This fan who attended the final round of the PGA Championship on Sunday, obviously, isn't Indiana Jones.

Max Homa pokes fun at himself for finishing behind Scottie Scheffler

Friday morning, Scottie Scheffler was arrested but released with enough leeway to make his morning tee time.

Sunday, he finished the tournament at 13 under. That was five shots better than Max Homa.

And Homa was honest in his frustration about that tidbit following his final round, posting a 2-under 69 — four shots worse than Scheffler's Sunday score.

Justin Thomas ends PGA Championship in top 10

Louisville native Justin Thomas shot 3 under in the final round of the PGA Championship and ended the tournament 13-under. After shooting par on the 15th, 16th and 17th holes, he birdied on the final hole to cap his tournament showing. He's currently tied for eighth place as of 5:59 p.m.

Xander Schauffele regains the PGA Championship lead

Xander Schauffele bounced back from a bogey on the 10th hole with two birdies and is 20-under for sole possession of first place.

Viktor Hovland is now tied with Xander Schauffele for the lead

Viktor Hovland is 19 under through 13 holes and has tied with Xander Schauffele for first place. He birdied on back-to-back holes to earn a share of the top spot.

Every pairing has wrapped up front nine: Where does leaderboard stand?

Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele, who are playing in the final pairing together, have wrapped up their front nine. Entering the day tied for the lead at 15 under, Schauffele had a far better opening nine, shooting 4 under (31) while Morikawa is even on the day, going out in 35.

Schauffele now is at 19 under, two shots clear of Bryson DeChambeau and Viktor Hovland.

Scottie Scheffler wraps up his 2024 PGA Championship with bounce-back round

The world's top-ranked player and the favorite to win this year's PGA Championship, Scottie Scheffler, notched a 6-under 65 in his final round Sunday. That moved him to 13 under for the tournament and in a tie for eighth as of 4:47 p.m.

Sunday's 65 also marked a bounce-back effort for Scheffler, who shot a 2-over 73 in Saturday's third round. That score snapped a 42-round streak of even-or-under-par performances, which was the second longest in PGA Tour history, trailing Tiger Woods, who had 52 straight rounds at even par or better during a run that spanned the 2000 and 2001 seasons.

What is PGA Championship tiebreaker?

Although Xander Schauffele is at the top of the PGA Championship leaderboard, it's a narrow margin. As of 4:36 p.m., Schauffele's lead (-17) was only by one stroke with Bryson DeChambeau and Viktor Hovland tied for second (-16). If there's a tie for first place, a three-hole aggregate playoff format will take place on hole Nos. 13, the "Limestone Hole," 17, named "Straight Up," and 18, named "Photo Finish," according to the PGA of America.

Shane Lowry climbing the PGA Championship leaderboard

Shane Lowry birdied on holes three and four and is tied with Bryson DeChambeau and Collin Morikawa for second.

Xander Schauffele regains sole possession of first in PGA Championship

Not long after there became a three-way tie for first, Xander Schauffele began his final round with a birdie on the par-4 first hole to take sole possession of the No. 1 spot on the leaderboard at 16 under.

Collin Morikawa, who is paired Schauffele, parred the first to hold steady with Sahith Theegala in a tie for second at 15 under.

Sahith Theegala ties Xander Schauffele, Collin Morikawa atop PGA Championship leaderboard

Sahith Theegala started his final round by draining a birdie putt from a little more than 55 feet out.

With it, Theegala tied Xander Schauffele and Collin Morikawa atop the leaderboard at 15 under.

Justin Thomas posts his 1st birdie of the day. From out of the bunker.

Louisville's own, Justin Thomas, crept one shot closer to the lead on Hole No. 3. And he did it from out of position. In a greenside bunker on the par-3 third hole, Thomas chipped in for birdie from nearly 40 feet away.

The shot moved Thomas to 1 under on his round and 11 under for the tournament, four shots behind co-leaders Collin Morikawa and Xander Schauffele.

Watch Thomas hole out from the bunker in the video below.

Alejandro Tosti drives the green on Valhalla's signature 13th hole

The most well-known hole at Valhalla Golf Club is No. 13. Because of its signature island green.

The par-4 hole is playing at 349 yards with Sunday's pin position. Instead of playing it safe off the tee and laying up to the fairway, Alejandro Tosti went for it all.

The gamble paid off, as Tosti's tee shot landed on the green — less than 7 feet from the cup. He capitalized on the picture-perfect tee shot by converting his eagle putt.

Tosti went on to post a 3-under 68 in the final round, ending the tournament at even par.

Check out his highlight-reel drive (and subsequent eagle putt) on 13 below.

Brits Tommy Fleetwood, Jordan Smith record lowest rounds of early action Sunday

Tommy Fleetwood and Jordan Smith, both hailing from England, have the two lowest rounds in the clubhouse among those with morning tee times Sunday. Smith carded a 7-under 64, while Fleetwood was one stroke behind with a 6-under 65.

Fleetwood finished at 9 under for the tournament, one ahead of Smith at 8 under.

Former Louisville golfer Adam Hadwin raises L after eagle on 13th hole at PGA Championship

Adam Hadwin, who golfed for U of L from 2005-09, celebrated his eagle on the par-4 13th by raising L.

With the eagle, the Canadian improved to 5 under and moved to 47th on the PGA Championship leaderboard.
