American Xander Schauffele won the 106th edition of the PGA Championship, a major golf tournament, on Sunday on the Valhalla Golf Club course in Louisville (Kentucky). Thomas Detry finished in fourth place.

Detry gained six places in the final ranking thanks to a final round of 66 shots, five under par, after five birdies, at holes N.7, 8, 12, 16 and 18. With his total of 269, 15 under par , he failed at the foot of the podium, but achieved his first top-5 in a Major. Detry has six strokes more than the winner, Schauffele.

Schauffele, Olympic champion, signed a final card of 65 after seven birdies and a bogey. At the age of 30, he won the first Major of his career. His score of 363 (21 under par) is the lowest in the history of Grand Slam tournaments.

Schauffele was one step ahead of his compatriot Bryson DeChambeau. Norwegian Viktor Hovland took third place by three shots. American Colin Morikawa, who shared the lead with Schauffele after the third round, fell to fourth, tied with Detry, after a round of 71, par.

World No.1 Scottie Scheffler had to settle for eighth place, 8 shots behind the winner, at the end of an exhausting week, after being arrested and handcuffed at dawn on Friday for trying to force a police roadblock.
