For the last 2 years, this guy has been on fire. After a checkered past on the Nationwide Tour, stints on the PGA Tour, and Q-school, Jimmy Walker started to develop a consistent game on the PGA Tour in 2011 and 2012.

His first win came in the Fall of 2013 (the beginning of the 2014 season) with the Open, and he followed it up with a win in January of 2014 at the Sony Open in Hawaii. Then in Feb. ’14, he won the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. After 187 events without a victory, Walker racked up three wins in just eight starts and went on to garner three Top-Ten finishes in three majors in the same year.

“He’s one of the hottest players in the world,” Scott Piercy, Walker’s closest competitor, said.

“What he’s done the last year or two years, nobody’s catching him. It’s just a cakewalk.”

Do you think he will contend at Augusta?  Bet your bottom dollar he will!
