SPRINGFIELD, N.J. (ABC4 Sports) – Former BYU golfer Danny Summerhays shot a final round 66, and finished in third place at the PGA Championship, his best career finish at a major championship.

Thanks to a 32 on the back nine, Summerhays finished at 10-under par for the tournament, four strokes behind the winner, Jimmy Walker and three shots back of runner-up Jason Day.

The third place finish guarantees Summerhays a spot in the 2017 Masters.

The Farmington native concluded his rain-suspended third round Sunday with a 67 to head into the final round at 6-under par.

After a pedestrian 34 on the front nine, Summerhays heated up on the back nine, as he birdied five of his final seven holes.

This is Summerhay’s second top-10 finish at a major championship this year. He finished tied for 8th at the U.S. Open in June.
