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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
May 22 - 1:39 PM

Jimmy Walker set the pace early Saturday morning with a 2-under 34-34=68 in the third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Going off in threesomes on split tees, Walker was one of six golfers with a 9:50 a.m. CT tee time. It wasn't a flashy round, with only one bogey offset by three par breakers, but he bested the other five golfers to reach 3-under 207 at the 54-hole mark. Walker sat just outside the top 25 at the time of his posting and will make a run tomorrow at his 14th top 25 of the season.
May 17 - 3:51 PM

Jimmy Walker blitzed TPC Sawgrass for a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of THE PLAYERS to take the clubhouse lead.

Walker's seven birdies and one eagle to just two bogeys were good enough to elevate him to 10-under 278 for the tournament. In addition to a 10'6" eagle at the par-5 11th, other highlights included birdies from 17'2" at the third and 10 feet on the seventh. Putting was the key, as he gained 2.507 strokes with the flat stick at the time of his posting and ranked first in the field with a 1.569 putting average for the week. It appears unlikely that his number will hold up, but the FedExCup points leader has added a little padding to his tally in that regard.

Jimmy Walker brings his first-place standing in the FedExCup to TPC Sawgrass for THE PLAYERS.

Walker's best finish in four previous trips to Sawgrass was a T15 last year, which follows a very similar pattern to his career. That is, the last 12 months has consistently seen him post career-best finishes at various venues. With that as the backdrop, there's no reason to think he won't contend into the weekend this week as well.

Jimmy Walker ended his first Masters with a 2-under-par 35-35=70 and is in a three-way tie for the clubhouse lead at even-par 288.

It's hard to know what to expect for any first timer at Augusta National Golf Club, but Walker has laid the groundwork for future Masters success. Should he hold on and finish inside the top 12, which seems likely, he will punch his ticket for a return trip in 2015. He ended the week with 17 birdies, 17 bogeys and 38 pars, avoiding big numbers all week.
Apr 13 - 4:47 PM

Jimmy Walker grooved an even-par 35-37=72 in his second round of the Masters to post 2-under 142 at the midpoint.

He found 13 greens in regulation today and rolled in three birdies -- all on par 5s -- but erased them with three bogeys. While he's five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, he'll need to tighten up his putting. Walker has taken 64 putts on the greens thus far.
Apr 11 - 6:28 PM

Jimmy Walker wrestled a 2-under-par 36-34=70 out of Augusta National Golf Club in his opening round of the Masters.

It's a little hard to believe that the FedExCup points leaders and three-time PGA TOUR winner is making his debut, but there you have it. He dissected the course for 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation en route to six birdies, including four in succession beginning at No. 14. He also swallowed four bogeys, so he may have walked off thinking that he left a shot or two out there, something never expected in the first competitive round of the tournament. Regardless, he was the fourth to earn a piece of the clubhouse lead.
