Jimmy Walker Wins PGA Championship: Photos You Need to See

Walker hugs caddie Andy Sanders after his putt for par on the 18th hole to win the 2016 PGA Championship at Baltusrol Golf Club. Sanders has been Walker’s caddie since 2007. He's been by his side for the ups and downs of Walker's career, including four tournament wins in 2014.

Walker won three times in the first eight events of the 2014 PGA Tour season. He joined Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson and David Duval as the only players in the last 20 years to win three of eight tournaments to begin a season. Walker has credited Sanders with much of his success on the course.

“Andy is one of the best putters I have ever known,” Walker told PGATour.com. “He’s great at reading greens, and even though we have different playing styles he helps me see courses in a different way. He knows my swing, and we can talk about it when something is working and when something isn’t working.”

Sanders was listed on Sport Stardom's Top 10 Highest Paid Caddies on the 2015 PGA Tour. Forbes also listed him as the eighth highest paid caddie following the 2014 season.

Both publications reported Sanders' earnings at $680,000 for the 2014 season. (Getty)
