Pebble Beach marks his third win of the season

If you follow golf, the big tournament going on was the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. The tournament was a very close and hardly fought game. Jimmy Walker led the tournament by as many as six shots, but in the end, the game came down to the final putt reports ABC News.

"It's drama, man," Walker said on the 18th green. "It was too much for me."

The win is a big deal for Walker, who was regarded as one of the best players that hadn't won a game on the major PGA Tour only a short while ago. The 35-year-old golfer is off to a great year so far with the win at Pebble Beach being his third win of the season.

In fact, the win this weekend makes Walker the only the third golfer in the last two decades to win three times in his first eight starts of a season. The other three golfers are Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and David Duval. Tiger won three times in eight starts a whopping eight times.

The round was tense at the end for Walker who made a 10-foot birdie on the 11th hole. A bad chip on a par-3 12th hole put him in trouble. Walker three putted hole 17, but pulled out the win.

"I hate three-putting," Walker said. "I had two of them back there, and definitely didn't want another one on the last."

Walker finished the tournament 11-under 277 and earned $1.18 million. "I just go out and play golf," Walker said. "This is what I want to do and I've worked really hard to do it, to be here, and to be in this position and it's really cool."
