Many golf fans are still rather unfamiliar with Jimmy Walker. But if he keeps playing the way he has the past four months, he may become one of the better-known players.
Walker gained his third victory of the 2013-14 season Sunday when he captured the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He’s in California this week for the Northern Trust Open in Los Angeles.
Walker said the game was difficult a couple of years ago when he often struggled to make cuts. He then decided to get in better shape, giving himself a better chance to succeed.
“The year that I’m having so far, it’s really cool,” he said. “It’s fun for me.”
