What a sweet ending to the PGA Championship.

Jason Day had it sewn up when he stepped on the green and the tears began to flow. Day continued to cry after sealing the victory:

Day shot 20-under at the PGA Championship in Haven, Wis., a record score for a major.

Before this weekend, Day had nine top-10 finishes in majors. At the British Open last month, he entered the last round tied for the lead but finished fourth. At the U.S. Open in June, Day had a share of the lead after three rounds despite collapsing on the course during the second round because of vertigo.
