(AP) On his 188th try, Jimmy Walker won his first PGA Tour title Sunday in the Frys.com Open and earned his first trip to the Masters.


It took some help from Brooks Koepka, who was playing in his first PGA Tour event.


Walker took the lead for good with a birdie on the 15th hole at CordeValle, and three pars for a 5-under 66 was all it took. Koepka led by four shots on the front nine. He collapsed on the last four holes, losing all hope when his tee shot on the par-4 17th came up a yard short into the water.


This is Walker's eighth full season on the PGA Tour. The win means he will crack the top 50 in the world ranking for the first time.
