Jimmy Walker has a free-flowing golf swing that seems devoid of any surplus movement.  Smooth on the backswing, great transition into the downswing, and a full follow-through.  But the key component of this swing is the ability to keep the club moving from the inside.  This produces a consistent draw.  The move that helps him produce this swing is explained by Hank Haney for Golf Digest!  Enjoy!

Jimmy Walker is one of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour, and in this clip, Hank Haney‘s analysis tells us Jimmy’s secret is the way he starts his downswing.  A turn – slide – turn sequence involves a good shoulder turn, a lateral move that shifts the weight from the back foot to the front, and then a huge turn through the ball. This creates that tremendous clubhead speed that allows him to pound the ball!  Thanks to The Scene for this great clip!

Jimmy Walker has just won the Valero Texas Open to become the first multiple winner on Tour for 2015.

Jimmy Walker - Who is this late-blooming phenom?

He won the Sony Open by record 9 strokes back in January, when he became the first repeat winner of this tournament since Ernie Els in 2004.

Jimmy Walker - Who is this late-blooming phenom?

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 Frys.com 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!
