He began the day eight shots off the lead, but posted a red-hot 62 that included nine birdies and no bogeys on the par-71 TPC Summerlin course.
There’s still plenty of golf left to be played, but we might be looking at our 2014 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open victor in the three-time PGA Tour winner. Last year at the Frys.com Open, Walker went 62-66 on the weekend to claim his first PGA Tour victory. He erased an eight-shot deficit en route to his win that week.
Walker’s Saturday 62 was tied for the lowest round of the week (Ben Martin and Tim Herman also shot 62s on Saturday) and the fifth 62 of his career.
