Jimmy Walker held off his pursuants to take home the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this weekend on a cold, wet, and windy day on the Monterey Peninsula.
Carrying a six stroke lead into the final round, Walker made it his tournament to win. He proceeded to card a front nine one-under par 35 to keep the big lead. On the back, Walker dropped a few shots but still got the job done by holing a par putt on the famous 18th at Pebble securing tory.
Walker relied on FJ Icon and StaSof during all four days of the inclement weather-plagued tournament.
This is Walker's third victory of the still infantile 2014 PGA Season. The win also increases his lead in the season long 2014 Fedex Cup points race.

On the European Tour, George Coetzee broke through in Johannesburg for his first Euro Tour victory. Several shots out of the lead to start the final round, Coetzee pieced together a brilliant six-under par round of 66 to win by three in his home country of South Africa.
Coetzee trusted DryJoys Casual, StaSof, and FJ Performance Apparel en route to the ground breaking victory. He is the first player on a major professional tour to win in the DryJoys Casual, the latest performance spikeless golf shoe from FJ.
Coetzee, who has recorded 24 top 25 finishes on the European tour, added post round, “I’ve been waiting a while and I started doubting, so I’m very happy...I got to share this with my family and my friends. It was my mum’s birthday yesterday and I wanted to do it for her as I forgot to buy her a present!”

A great win and now he enters another plateau in that he becomes one of the few that have won 3 tournaments in 8 starts and the season has just begun. CONGRATULATIONS to Walker on his win and looking forward to more from this Pro in the coming months.
JW is on fire this season! It was a great FJ weekend indeed!
He's DYNOMITE!!!!!! :-)
Three wins in 8 events -- what a start to the year and he isn't stopping as he is entered in this weeks event. Congratulations.
Great site to his season , what a clutch putt on 18 ! He is a class act who paid his dues and now has his game and confidence level at a point where he is now a Ryder Cup lock.
FJ on top again.
Another great win by JImmy.
Dang, Walker is hotter than a summer in Houston!
Jimmie's the MAN! Always liked his understated and tasteful manner. A hugely positive add to the Titleist family..
JW and FJ are both rolling along to a great season!
Always liked Jimmy, glad to see he is having such an awesome start to 2014. And congrats again to Titileist/FJ
Puts him up there with the elite player. A super weekend for FootJoy. Congratulations and lets hope this excellent play can continue in 2014. Cut it a little too close at Pebble Beach, but a win is a win........ :-)
