WATCH: Morikawa's Stunning Eagle En-Route To PGA Championship Win

Collin Morikawa made a sensational eagle at TPC Harding Park's drivable 16th to win the PGA Championship.

In what will surely go down as shot of the year, the American hit a drive to inside 10ft and converted the putt to surge ahead.

The leaderboard was tightly-packed with quality players and it was Morikawa who produced the shots to win during the pressure moments and no shot was more clutch than his tee shot on 16.
