Hittin the Links Ladies and gentlemen, Jimmy Walker is your newest major champion! On the rain-soaked grounds of Baltusrol Golf Club, Walker held off defending champion Jason Day by one shot, winning it with a knee-knocker on the 72nd hole that was never in doubt.

Hittin the Links Welcome, welcome, welcome to Hittin' the Links! Jhonny Vegas is your weekly PGA Tour winner, as he grinded out a victory at the Canadian Open at Glen Abbey, shooting a 64 on the final day.

We'll also look forward to the PGA Championship, get to know Beef Johnston, and whatever you do, do not click the fourth link. Just don't do it. All that, plus a new weekly segment for hole #9.

Hittin the Links Dustin Johnson, he formerly of the 800-lb major championship gorilla, appears to be breaking through big time. With his most recent win, this time at Firestone, Johnson now has three WGC wins, and continues to move up the career wins list. Johnson's 11 PGA Tour wins look more and more impressive by the year as the PGA Tour searches for a dominant star player to fill the Tiger void.

On this week's Hittin' the Links, we take a look at DJ's win, JD's collapse, and more from this week on the PGA Tour. We also check in with Stacey Lewis, who has some opinions on the Olympics, take a look at the best food at the turn, and learn how to get a tee time at The Old Course.

Let's get to it!
