With a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-30=63 in his final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii, Jimmy Walker successfully defended his title, this time winning by a tournament-record nine strokes.
Walker posted 23-under 257, tied for fourth-lowest in PGA TOUR history. (Five guys have scored lower.) It's the second-lowest at Waialae Country Club (Russell Henley, 256; 2013). Walker's nine-shot margin over Scott Piercy is the widest on the circuit since Brian Gay's 10-stroke win at the 2009 Verizon Heritage. This didn't have the makings of a runaway early. Walker settled for routine pars on his first seven holes before catching fire with birdies on Nos. 8-10 from close range. He would add three more birdies, falling from between 13 and 21 feet, on the 12th, 15th and 16th holes before tapping in for a closing birdie on the par-5 18th. His 29 birdies were the most in his career in any event, and he finished the week first in greens in regulation, strokes gained: putting and putting average. Gamers have to be drooling at what this could mean for the remainder of the West Coast Swing, where he is traditionally strong. Jan 18 - 8:18 PM
