Walker hangs on for third win of season

Jimmy Walker let a big lead shrink, but held on for a one-shot victory at the Pebble Beach National Pro-Am - his third win in eight US PGA Tour starts this season.

Walker carded a two-over 74 in the final round for an 11-under total of 276. Two-time Pebble Beach Pro-Am winner Dustin Johnson (66) and Jim Renner (67) tied for second at 277.

Walker had held a six-shot lead when the third round in the weather-disrupted tournament was wrapped up yesterday morning.

Walker had come from behind in his earlier two victories this season - the Frys.com Open last October which was the first event of the US Tour's "wrap-around" 2013-14 season and the Sony Open last month. - AFP.
