Jimmy Walker will get introduced to East Lake Golf Club at this week's TOUR Championship.
Walker falls just outside the top-5 bubble of golfers who can control their own destiny, but he's not far off at sixth in the FedExCup standings. Even still, there is a mathematical chance of him winning the FedExCup win a runner-up finish, which can't be said for any of the golfers below him in the standings. With 20 of his 26 events resulting in 26th place or better, expect Walker to be right in the thick of things again at East Lake. Sep 8 - 11:10 PM

Jimmy Walker signed for a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to join Carl Pettersson in the clubhouse lead at 9-under 275.

Walker circled five birdies and squared one bogey on his tour of TPC Boston, with each of the birdies falling from inside of nine feet. It's not often a player on the verge of a top-10 finish falls in the FedExCup standings, but that's the case for the American. He entered the week third in the standings but was projected to fall to sixth at the time of his posting. Either way, expect to see him not only at the BMW Championship later this week, but also at the TOUR Championship.
Sep 1 - 4:05 PM

At 3-over-par 71-74=145, Jimmy Walker missed the cut at The Barclays by two strokes.

While nothing special or damaging occurred on Thursday, that can't be said of today's loop around Ridgewood Country Club. Walker found only five (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, both no-no's when attempting to navigate the tight track. The imprecision led to five bogeys and a double that were only somewhat softened by four birdies. He entered the FedExCup Playoffs slotted second in the standings, so he'll be around for the duration, but it's a tough way to open after such an outstanding season. Other notables that failed to survive the cut include: 144--Brandt Snedeker; Ian Poulter ... 145--2012 champ Nick Watney; Graham DeLaet; Luke Donald ... 146--Webb Simpson; Harris English; Matt Every ... 147--Ryan Moore; Marc Leishman ... 148--Martin Kaymer; Camilo Villegas; J.B. Holmes; Freddie Jacobson.

Jimmy Walker crafted a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the PGA Championship to join Ernie Els in the clubhouse lead at 11-under 273.

Walker rattled off four birdies in five holes beginning with the par-3 third, all from inside six feet, before dropping his only shot of the day at the par-5 10th. His highlights came in the form of 17'10" and 26'5" birdies at the par-3 11th and par-4 17th holes before closing his day with a seventh birdie at the par-5 18th. Despite splitting just five of 14 fairways at Valhalla Golf Club, the American landed an impressive 16 GIR. It appears unlikely he will notch his first major championship, but he enters the upcoming FedExCup Playoffs in solid form.

Jimmy Walker toured Royal Liverpool in 1-under-par 38-33=71 in today's second round of The Open Championship.

Walker promptly erased all of his handiwork from an opening-round 69 with a bogey-bogey-bogey start today, but he responded with six birdies against a double bogey (at the par-4 seventh) the rest of the way. At 4-under 140, he's eight strokes adrift of the 36-hole lead. Continue to expect the FedExCup points leader to successfully navigate his way around the links track in Hoylake.

Jimmy Walker enjoyed a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of The Open Championship.

While Walker sits atop the FedExCup standings and has three wins this season, he's also posted top 10s in the first two majors. Today's score at Royal Liverpool has him sitting inside the top 10 on the leaderboard as the late wave plays. He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens en route to five birdies. He played the par 5s in even, including a bogey at No. 5. Walker squared his other bogey at the par-4 11th. He signed his card sitting three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Jul 17 - 9:35 AM

Jimmy Walker stumbled to a 5-over-par 70-75=145 during his stay at The Greenbrier Classic, missing the cut by five strokes.

This is easily one of the most surprising MCs of the season. He essentially displaced any momentum on Thursday after hitting 16 greens in regulation. They yielded only two birdies that were wiped away with a double bogey at the par-5 17th hole. Today he went just 1-for-9 in par breakers and squared four bogeys and a double. The FedExCup leader wasn't along among the notables with the weekend off, however. Others include: 141--Marc Leishman; Will MacKenzie ... 143--Chesson Hadley; Brian Harman ... 144--2010 champ Stuart Appleby (after respective rounds of 73 and 81, has yet to break par in eight rounds at The Old White TPC since his 59); Ben Martin ... 149--Daniel Summerhays ... 150--K.J. Choi.
Jul 4 - 7:29 PM

Jimmy Walker enters The Greenbrier Classic among the favorites to take home the trophy.

The reason's for optimism in regards to Walker are many. He has finished inside the top four on three of his four trips to The Old White TPC, including a runner-up last year. He enters this week off back-to-back top-10 finishes on the PGA TOUR. Add to that, he's still the top guy in the FedExCup standings. He'll vie for his fourth win of 2013-14.
Jul 1 - 10:01 PM

Jimmy Walker closed out his week at the U.S. Open with a final round 1-under-par 35-34=69 to end the tournament at 2-over 282.

Walker's three birdies outpaced his two bogeys at Pinehurst No. 2, needing 27 putts after finding only 10 GIR in the finale. The FedExCup points leader has now picked up his first top 10 in a U.S. Open after also nabbing a T8 at the Masters earlier this season. He continues to post career-best finishes at numerous venues on the PGA TOUR this season.
Jun 15 - 6:22 PM

Jimmy Walker turned in an even-par 34-36=70 for his opening round of the 114th U.S. Open.

He's sat atop the FedExCup points list ever since securing his second of three wins at the Sony Open in Hawaii, but has managed to float along without too much attention and, therefore, stress. He hit 12 greens at Pinehurst today and rolled in five birdies. Unfortunately, he also squared one bogey and two doubles to stay humbled. The good news is that he's only two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.
Jun 12 - 6:04 PM

Jimmy Walker readies for the challenge of Pinehurst No. 2 at this week's U.S. Open.

The current FedExCup leader has slowed down since the start of the year, but is still on top of his game. Walker enters the week ranked 13th in driving distance and 5th in strokes gained-putting. You can ignore his 3-for-7 career record in major championships, because his game travels anywhere this season, proven by the 14 top 25s in 18 starts.
Jun 11 - 12:04 PM

Jimmy Walker settled for an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational to end his week at 6-under 274.

Walker spend some time atop the leaderboard during the final round, but bogeys at the 12th and 14th holes were never answered by birdies on the closing stretch at Colonial CC. In all, he traded three birdies for three bogeys, with an 18'8" birdie on the par-3 eighth easily the highlight. As his stats would have suggested, he struggled finding fairways this week. He split just 41.07 percent of the fairways and ranked T70 in driving accuracy this week.
May 25 - 5:06 PM

Jimmy Walker stumbled late in a third-round 1-under-par 33-36=69 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and trails the clubhouse lead by a stroke.

At one point, Walker had pushed the lead number to 8-under, but bogeys on the 13th and 15th holes and a hard-fought par on the par-4 18th eventually settled him in at 6-under 204. When a 25'4" birdie on the par-4 second was followed up with a 13-footer on the par-4 third, it looked like it would be his day, but it didn't quite work out. Still, he has very little ground to make up in what figures to be a very fluid final round.
May 24 - 6:33 PM

Jimmy Walker added a bogey-free, 2-under-par 35-33=68 in his second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to post bogey-free, 5-under 135 at the midpoint.

Walker is two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling again today, but negotiated only two birdies. They measured 18'10" at the par-4 10th hole and 20'5" at the par-5 11th. He kept his card spotless with a par save from 10'3" at the par-4 18th where he approach came to rest past the green.
May 23 - 6:33 PM

Jimmy Walker enjoyed a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

True to form, he found only four (of 14) fairways, but Walker went 5-for-5 in scrambling and picked off three birdies. The set included conversions from 12'2" at the par-4 12th hole and 21'1" at the par-5 first. Last week's T37 at the Nelson was his first payday outside a top 25 in 2014, so it's a bit of a relief to know that he's dialed in again. He has sat atop the FedExCup standings for all but one week this season.
