14 Things You Should Know About Jimmy Walker\nHow familiar are you with the newest owner of the Wanamaker Trophy? Here are a few things you should know about 2016 PGA Championship winner Jimmy Walker.\nAs of July 25, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook had Walker at 125-1 odds. And for good reason: Walker had missed the cuts at the past two majors, and his last top 10 came in March.\nWalker was an All-Big 12 performer in Waco, and never missed a tournament in his time with the Bears. He graduated in 2001.\nThat year's event at Southern Hills was his first tournament as a professional. Although we are guessing winning the Wanamaker has usurped this memory as his favorite moment.\nErin Stiegemeier was a volunteer at a 2004 tournament, and as Walker said, "the rest is history." They have two children.\nWalker grabbed this honor, as well as topping the tour's money list, thanks to wins at the BellSouth Panama Championship and Chitimacha Louisiana Open.\nAndy Sanders played at the University of Houston and was one of the top amateur players in the country. He turned pro in 2001 and competed on the Nationwide Tour until 2004. However, his career was derailed due to multiple sclerosis and a battle with vertigo. ""We've been together a long time," Walker said of Sanders at Baltusrol. "And to win our sixth event, first major here where we met, that's just cool."\n"Orion's Sword. The Christmas Tree Cluster. The Sagittarius Triplets. These are the interstellar things I see and photograph through astrophotography," Walker told Golf Digest in 2015. "Basically it consists of photographing distant galaxies and nebulae through a telescope." You can find his work at jwalk.smugmug.com.\nWalker claims he can throw a small football close to 80 yards, and in Little League back in Oklahoma, he once struck out 14 batters in a six-inning game en route to a state championship. "On my way to the first tee on Thursday (at the '01 US Open), I hear a voice from the crowd yell, 'Jimmy Walk!'" Walker told Golf Digest. "Hearing my nickname from when I was a boy stops me. I look over, and it's my coach from Little League. Coach Bennett. And what does Coach Bennett say as I'm ready for the biggest moment in my golf life? 'I still think you should've been a pitcher.'"\nHis father-in-law, Mark Stiegemeier, was the 1975 world champion in freestyle skiing, and his wife Erin is a show jumper.\nAfter 187 starts without a victory, Walker won three of the first eight PGA Tour events during the 2013-14 campaign. His inaugural victory came at the Frys.com Open, and quickly added titles from the Sony Open and AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am to his trophy mantle.\nBetter yet, early in the week at Baltusrol, Harmon was interviewed about his interactions with his pupils. When asked about his work with Walker at the PGA, Harmon responded, "He’s swinging really good. He didn’t need a lot of work.”\n"I'd just had a lousy finish in Rochester and was driving to the next tournament," Walker told Golf Digest. "After six years as a pro my career hadn't gone anywhere." He called his wife to discuss getting a normal job. But she talked him out of it, saying "The guy I married has never quit at anything. This is what we decided to do. You've got to keep going."\nWalker shot a course-record eight-under 19 at the annual Masters Par-3 Contest at Augusta National. Walker had six birdies on his round, and logged a hole-in-one on No. 2.\nThirteen clubs in Walker's bag at Baltusrol came from Titleist, including a 12-year-old Scotty Cameron putter and a prototype driver. Walker also used a Titleist Pro V1x ball.
