Walker, McNeill shoot record-tying 62s

By Sean Martin, PGATOUR.COM

SAN MARTIN, Calif. – Jimmy Walker now shares the CordeValle Golf Club tournament course record with … himself.

Walker shot 62 on Saturday to get into contention at the Open. He’s at 12-under 201, three shots behind leader Brooks Koepka, after shooting 70-69-62. He shot a final-round 62 here last year to finish fourth.

He wasn’t the only player with a record-tying round Saturday. George McNeill also shot 62 and is 13 under par after three rounds. Both players shot 31-31, making 10 birdies and one bogey.

“It was a lot of fun,” McNeill said. “Sixty-two, I don’t know how it could ever not be fun. … I figured out something on the range last night and my swing was much more comfortable today. I felt free so I could go ahead and aim at some flags. I pulled it off and made some putts.

Walker is seeking his first PGA TOUR win. McNeill has two PGA TOUR wins – one of those came in Las Vegas when that event also had as the title sponsor -- but neither victory qualified him for the Masters. Sunday’s winner will earn a Masters invitation.

“You need a little bit of luck and you need to play good,” Walker said about winning. He has one runner-up and two third-place finishes in 187 PGA TOUR starts. “Maybe just haven’t played as good as I need to on the last day.”
