SAN FRANCISCO — Collin Morikawa has won the PGA Championship with one of the greatest shots hardly anyone witnessed at a major. 

On a wild Sunday at Harding Park with seven players tied for the lead, the Cal-Berkeley graduated chipped in for birdie to take the lead and then hit driver to 7 feet for eagle that clinched it. 

Morikawa closed with a 64, which is the lowest final round by a PGA champion in 25 years. And it made the Californian a major champion at age 23. 

This was the first major without spectators because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
