PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. – Jimmy Walker has just finished off a career-low round of 63 at Monterey Peninsula County Club which ties for the low round of the tournament there.
His bogey-free round has moved Walker into a tie for second with Bryce Molder at 11 under. Molder has seven holes remaining at Spyglass Hill.
Meanwhile, Steve Marino, who is also playing at Monterey Peninsula, has recovered from a shaky start and is even through 12 holes. He owns the lead at 13 under.
Walker is one of many players at the top of the leaderboard still seeking their first PGA TOUR victories. His best is a tie for third at last year’s Valero Texas Open.
The former Nationwide Tour Player of the Year finished solo fourth in his 2011 opener at the Sony Open in Hawaii. – Helen Ross
