PGA Championship Final Round: LIVE updates and scores

Welcome to live scores, updates and commentary from the final round of the US PGA Championship at Valhalla.

Xander Schauffele has captured his maiden major title with victory at the 2024 US PGA Championship at Valhalla.

Schauffele, 30, poured home a birdie putt from six feet on the par-5 18th to seal a narrow one-shot victory over LIV Golf's Bryson DeChambeau.

The World No.3 closed with a gutsy round of 6-under 65 to finish the week on 21-under par, which marks the lowest winning score to par in a major championship.

The previous low winning score at a major was 20-under par (2015 US PGA, 2016 Open, 2020 Masters, 2022 Open).

Schauffele also joins a list of 10 players to go wire-to-wire at a major championship.

The win marks Schauffele's first major title and the eighth of his PGA Tour career.

Xander Schauffele, 2024 PGA champion. 

Schauffele wins the US PGA!

Schauffele drills the birdie putt home on the left side and he seals an emotional first major title. Schauffele finishes the week on 21-under par, one shot ahead of LIV Golf's DeChambeau. What a week. Congratulations Xander Schauffele, 2024 US PGA champion

Schauffele chips up to six feet

Schauffele hits a solid chip shot up to six feet. It's about half the distance and on a similar line to the putt DeChambeau just holed. Six feet for a first major title for Schauffele. Can he do it? 

Fantastic shot from Schauffele

Schauffele grips way down the shaft and hits a fantastic 4-iron just short of the green. It's a great leave straight up the green, some 50 yards from the pin. Up and down for his maiden major title. 

Tough break for Schauffele at 18

Schauffele gets a tough break down the 18th. His drive finishes just shy of the bunker down the left, but he will be standing in the sand. Very difficult shot now upcoming for him. Birdie for the win, par for a playoff with DeChambeau.

Schauffele missed just to the right of the green at the par-4 17th but he played a beautiful chip shot down to two feet for a comfortable par. Schauffele needs to birdie the par-5 18th to capture his maiden major title. Will he do it? Let's see. 

Hovland makes bogey at 18

Hovland fails to convert his birdie putt missing low left, and he then misses the return putt for par. A closing bogey sees Hovland finish the week at 18-under par. It's now all down to Schauffele and DeChambeau to decide the 2024 US PGA Championship. 

DeChambeau birdies the 18th

Huge roars at 18 as DeChambeau drops his 12 footer into the cup. The ball was dying of speed but just dropped into the hole on the last roll. DeChambeau joins Schauffele out in front on 20-under par. Now it's the turn of Hovland. He has eight feet for birdie to join them in the lead. 

Schauffele finds sand on 17

Schauffele finds trouble off the tee at the 17th. Could be a tough par here for the leader. 

DeChambeau has about 12 feet

DeChambeau chips up and also comes up short of the hole. The LIV Golf star has about 12 feet for his birdie. It's another must make if he has any intentions of landing a second career major title. Tense times on the 18th green. Schauffele has just two-putted for par on the 16th and is heading to the 17th tee. 

Hovland chips up to eight feet

Hovland chips up to some eight feet short of the hole. It's a must make for Hovland if he wants to win his maiden major title. 

Hovland and DeChambeau both miss green at 18

Hovland and DeChambeau have both come up short of the green with their second shots at the par-5 18th. Hovland has gone right but in the fairway and has about 40 yards to the pin, while DeChambeau has gone left in the intermediate rough, and has a similar distance. Birdie a must if both players want to win the US PGA. 

Schauffele finds the heart of the green at 16

Schauffele is playing sensible golf here and finds the heart of the 16th green. Looks like a certain par. 

Eagle finish for Bob Mac

It's a brilliant finish for Scotland's Bob MacIntyre, who closes with a 10-foot eagle putt to finish the week in T8 on 13-under par.

Hovland misses a golden chance for birdie at the 17th. He sent a towering iron shot to within 12 feet but he missed on the left side. DeChambeau also made a par. The pair find themselves one back of Schauffele, who has also just made par on 15. 

JT gets huge reception at 18

Home favourite Justin Thomas gets a huge reception down the par-5 18th and he rewards the fans with a birdie to finish the week at 13-under par. That's T8 right now so it could be a top 10 finish for the Kentucky hero who has two US PGA titles to his name.

DeChambeau converts his short three footer for birdie after an outstanding shot into the 16th. The LIV Golf man moves to 19-under par alongside Hovland, who two-putts for par. Schauffele two putts for par on the par-3 14th to remain one shot clear at 20-under par. 











Schauffele finds the green at tough 14th

Schauffele drills a superb long iron into within 20 feet of the pin at the tough par-3 14th. Chance for birdie but a certain par for sure. 

Sensational shot from DeChambeau

DeChambeau takes full advantage of his big break down the 16th by sending a long iron to within three feet for birdie. It looks like a certain birdie for the LIV Golf man who will move to within one shot. 

Big break for Bryson

DeChambeau's tee shot looked for all the world it was heading for trouble in the trees down the left side of the par-4 16th but the ball bounced back into the middle of the fairway. The LIV Golf star is now two shots back so he will need to go birdie hunting with just three holes left to play.

Schauffele hits a stunning iron shot straight down the flag on the par-4 12th and he drains the seven footer for birdie to move back in front by one shot on 20-under par. 

Hovland (-19) sends a short iron shot into 20 feet at the par-4 15th, while DeChambeau (-18) has gone left into the greenside bunker. 

Hovland and DeChambeau make pars at the tough 14th

Hovland and DeChambeau both make pars at the brutal par-3 14th, which plays some 230 yards. 

Who have you got to win?
Schauffele back level with Hovland

What a ding-dong battle we've got going on here as Schauffele bounces back from the disappointment with a bogey at 10 with a clutch birdie from 12 feet at the par-3 11th. Schauffele and Hovland are now tied at the top on 19-under, one clear of DeChambeau. 

Bryson makes birdie on 13 too

DeChambeau follows Hovland in for birdie to move to 18-under par. The LIV Golf man is just one back of Hovland now.
