Walker, whose first PGA Tour win came at the Frys.com Open in October, picked up seven birdies around the Waialae Country Club course to finish 17-under par for the tournament.
Walker said: "I felt very calm and controlled. That's what you've got to feel and do when it's time to win. It's easy to say, hard to do. But today was awesome. Really cool golf."
The lead changed hands multiple times in Honolulu on Sunday with Kirk, Jerry Kelly and Harris English all scoring well to stay in contention until the very end.
Kirk, 28, started the day with the clubhouse lead but bogeyed the fourth hole, dragging himself back into the contest with six birdies across the last 10 holes to finish a stroke behind Walker.
A shot further back was tour veteran Kelly, who signed for a five-under par 65 and, while he sank as many birdies as the eventual champion, he would ultimately live to regret holing bogeys on the first and 14th holes.
English was rarely out of the top five places across the final two rounds and signed for a second three-under-par round of 67 after mixing birdies on five, seven, nine, 10 and 14 with bogeys on eight and 15.
