Late surge leads Walker to victory at Waialae

HONOLULU — Jimmy Walker pulled away with three straight birdies late in the final round and closed with a 7-under 63 to win the Sony Open.

Walker went 187 tournaments and seven years without winning on the PGA Tour. Now he has won twice in his last six starts, and is No. 1 in the Ryder Cup standings.

Sunday was so tight that there was a five-way tie for the lead with two hours remaining. Walker was one shot behind Harris English when he made three straight birdies starting at No. 15. English made bogey from the bunker on the 15th and never recovered.

Chris Kirk was the last player to have a chance. He missed a 30-foot eagle chip just short of the 18th green that would have forced a playoff.
