Jimmy Walker
Something tells us Jimmy Walker is a fan of the PGA Tour's new wraparound season. After going the first 187 tour starts of his career without winning, Walker won three of the first eight events of the 2013-14 season. He captured the season's opening event, the Open, and then added titles at the Sony Open and AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am within the next four months. The victory at Pebble made Walker, 35, just the fourth player since 1990 to win three PGA Tour events this early in a season.
