PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – Jimmy Walker has bounced back well after a disappointing final round at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last week.
He started Sunday one stroke off Steve Marino’s lead and played with him in the final group. But Walker ended up shooting a 75 and tumbled down the leaderboard into a tie for ninth.
At the same time, though, that was Walker’s second top-10 of the season. And he’s on the leaderboard again Friday at the Northern Trust Open, tied for fifth at 4 under and three strokes off the lead.
Maybe a positive attitude helps. Here’s what he tweeted on Tuesday.
@ JimmyWalkerPGA Thanks everyone. It was a difficult day but we learned a lot. I can't wait for my favorite course all, Riviera. – Helen Ross
