"Struggles" might be too tame a word. San Antonio's Jimmy Walker, the 2004 Nationwide Tour money leader whose rookie season on the PGA Tour was wracked by injury, returned to the PGA Thursday at the Sony Open. This is the same tournament where in 2005 Walker's neck injury first surfaced.
At least this year he didn't hurt himself. But he did shoot 80, worse than everyone else in the field - even Michelle Wie (79).
Walker is a great talent with tremendous potential, as long as he can stay healthy. As for this week, well, enjoy Hawaii, Jimmy.
