WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. – Jimmy Walker owns 18 career top-10 finishes, including a pair inside the top three. He knows what’s missing on that resume, though – a first career PGA Tour victory.
“I'm ready, so it's going to happen when it happens,” he said after a six-birdie, no-bogey performance. “I can't make it happen. I just go out and do what I've got to do, play golf and whatever happens happens. That's how I'm looking at it. I just keep putting myself in position. If I keep doing that, it's going to happen. Hopefully it will happen some more after that.”
Walker maintains that so many close calls – he’s claimed four top 10s already this year – can leave him frustrated, but he’s tried to see the silver lining.
“It can kind of start to wear on you a little bit, but you've got to try to take the positive out of it,” he explained. “You're there, you're knocking, you're close. I want to be here. This is where I like to be, in here talking to you guys about this stuff. That means good things are happening.”
