No worries for Walker despite being a Masters rookie

RSS

AUGUSTA, Ga. – If half the battle to succeeding at the Masters is retaining a positive attitude, then Jimmy Walker already owns an advantage.

During a torrential storm that forced a suspension of Monday’s practice round, Walker maintained that the break might have been a blessing in disguise.

“It's actually pretty nice having the break today, because I was going out and we had a pretty good work session this morning, dialing up a few little things with a little bit of alignment stuff,” he said. “It's kind of nice.”

As one of two dozen first-timers in this week’s field, Walker doesn’t own much experience here. But the 35-year-old also has trouble seeing himself as a rookie.

“I feel like I'm a pretty seasoned veteran,” he said. “I've been doing this a long time. It is a new golf tournament for me, but I've been doing this a long time.”
