Walker essentially played a full season under the weather as it was revealed that he was dealing with Lyme Disease since November of 2016. When put in that context, it's amazing that Walker played well enough to finish inside the top-125. With that in mind, it's probably best to just throw out all of his results from last season. At this price, the former major champion is a must have as his condition is something that he should be able to manage going forward. Even if he continues to struggle with it, he's still capable of playing well from time to time as proven last season.

  2. Jimmy Walker 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Walker essentially played a full season under the weather as it was revealed that he was dealing with Lyme Disease since November of 2016. When put in that context, it's amazing that Walker played well enough to finish inside the top-125. With that in mind, it's probably best to just throw out all of his results from last season. At this price, the former major champion is a must have as his condition is something that he should be able to manage going forward. Even if he continues to struggle with it, he's still capable of playing well from time to time as proven last season.
  3. Jimmy Walker 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    With his win at the PGA Championship, Jimmy Walker not only won his first major, but he also destroyed the notion that he only plays well early in the year. Walker surprised everyone at the PGA Championship, but anyone who watched him over those four days in July, knows that his win was no fluke. Walker jumped out to the lead and even with all the pressure in the world, managed to stave-off Jason Day and cruise to victory. It was a great moment for Walker, but one that makes his selection in a salary cap league this year almost impossible. In draft leagues, Walker is likely a 2nd-round pick.
  4. Jimmy Walker 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    A tale of two seasons for Walker in 2014. Walker dominated the early part of the season, but didn't get a lot accomplished during the heart of the PGA Tour season. Walker doesn't appear to be a fluke, but he's also not a top-5 player in the world, which is what he appeared to be early last season. As such, his price is too high in salary cap leagues. As for draft leagues, he could be a first-rounder, but probably should go early in the second round.
  5. Jimmy Walker 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Walker was one of the more consistent players in 2013, but his final number was a little low because he failed to find a victory. That fact however is working in his favor this year as his number is in a relatively reasonable position. Walker should continue to improve in 2014, which makes him a good pick in the 25-35 range. He's also a decent option in salary cap leagues.
  6. Jimmy Walker 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    Last season was Walker's third on the PGA TOUR, and he's improved each year. He increased his earnings in each of the last three seasons, but the increments have been relatively small. A larger increase in earnings is possible, though, as he showed signs early last season that he might be ready for bigger things. Considering his consistency the last few years, the risk is pretty low, which makes Walker a decent option in salary cap leagues. In draft leagues, Walker should go in the fifth or sixth round.
  7. Jimmy Walker 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    Walker has been a member of the PGA Tour since 2008 and has steadily improved each of his four seasons. Perhaps steadily isn't the best way to describe his progression. How about slowly? Yes, he's getting better, but at this rate, he'll be eligible for the Champions Tour by the time he hits $2 million. One the bright side, his biggest year-to-year improvement came last season as his earnings jumped from little more than $900K in 2010 to more than $1.3 million in 2011. He also improved his cut percentage as well as his Top-25s and Top-10s.
  8. Jimmy Walker 2010–11 Preseason Outlook
    Walker's performance on the PGA TOUR has improved each of the last three seasons, and there's hope that a significant bump in earnings could be right around the corner. Walker spent time the last couple years recovering from a neck injury, but he's appears past that. He finished 125th after the 2009 season before moving up 23 spots in 2010. Another jump up the rankings is likely ahead for Walker as he's fully healthy entering the 2011 season. Walker has been long off the tee and solid on the greens in his three years on the PGA TOUR.
  9. Jimmy Walker 2009–10 Preseason Outlook
    Nobody could classify Walker's play last year as Dyno-mite, yet he did enough to grab the final spot in the top-125. The problem with Walker is where he earned his money. Most of it came from late-season events with watered-down fields. Walker will be lucky to grab this spot again next season.
