Jimmy Walker leads the Valero Texas Open at the half-way stage at TPC San Antonio.
Jimmy used a hot putter to put together a second round -5 under par 67 in the Valero Texas Open, and would dearly love to win at Home;
“I was just kind of around the hole, didn’t make anything, and then finally got one to go on six.”
“I hit a good iron shot, just got it on top of the ridge there on 7 and made that putt.”
“And that 12-footer I made for birdie on the par-5, 8th hole, that was a nice little finish.”
“I’ve been rolling it pretty good, I’ve been working hard on my putting at home and it was ready to go this week. It feels like the hard work is paying off.”
“A win anywhere means a lot, but being at home, you get to have parents, in-laws, friends, best friends, distant family.”
“It would be cool. It doesn’t put anymore pressure on you, I think. If anything you’ve got a nice support crew out there and you’ve got good vibes and good mojo, and I believe in all that stuff.”
“So I think positive energy is good. I think we’ll have a lot of that.”
Aaron Baddeley and Charlie Hoffman are still in touch, just one shot behind at -5 under par for the competition, sharing second place.
Kevin Na and Jordan Spieth are tied in fourth position with -4 under par totals.
Jordan said he would like to see the return of the wind
“I would like to see a little bit more wind than today on the weekend to have a chance to shoot a few under and make up some ground.”
“Overall, I’m very pleased with today. I got a really good draw today, on top of yesterday, and took advantage.”
“It played about as easy as I think it can play today.”
“A couple of the holes were still in tough locations, but there should be some more gettable locations this weekend. But all in all, this was the day to take advantage.”
“I’m in contention which is right where I want to be. I’m chasing Aaron and Jimmy, two really, really good players that aren’t going to give up the lead easily, so I’m going to have to bring my A-game.”
