Winner's bag: Jimmy Walker's loyalty to his Scotty Cameron putter pays off
Scotty Cameron has a loyal -- some might say almost cult-like -- following, which has led many that use Cameron putters to hold onto them well after they have been banished from the bag. Jimmy Walker is one of those folks. In October Walker sent his 11-year-old Scotty Cameron Newport 2 GSS putter to the Scotty Cameron Custom Shop to be refurbished. Walker had good memories with the club as he won twice and topped the Nationwide Tour money list in 2004. In addition to a little sprucing up, Walker also had tungsten added to the sole to get the feel Walker desired.
Walker used the putter earlier this year in winning the Sony Open and it was still in the bag at the Valero Texas Open where Walker had an impressive 2.585 in strokes gained/putting. Put another way, Walker gained more than 10 strokes on the field on the greens over the four rounds.
