Walker bounces back

PACIFIC PALISADES, Calif. – What a difference a week makes. At least for Jimmy Walker on this particular Sunday

He entered the final round of last week’s AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am one stroke off the lead and played in the final group with Steve Marino. Walker, who was bidding for his first PGA TOUR victory, shot a 75 that sent him tumbling down the leaderboard into a tie for ninth.

But it was Walker’s  second top-10 of the season, and he brought that momentum with him to Los Angeles where he’s contending again Sunday at the Northern Trust Open.

The 2004 Nationwide Tour Player of the Year has just made the turn after shooting a bogey-free 31 on the front. Walker has moved to 9 under for the tournament, tied with Fred Couples just three strokes off the lead. – Helen Ross
