Jimmy Walker is the Round 1 leader at 9-under 63 -- tying the course record -- and he did it in the same fashion as Anthony Kim last year. Meaning, he hit less than half the fairways. In Walker's case, a lot less than half.
Walker hit only five of 14 fairways but needed only 23 putts on Thursday. As a reminder, here was Anthony Kim's stats off the tee last year:
|Player||Fairways Hit||Percentage||Rank in Field|
|Anthony Kim||23 of 56||41 percent||80th|
