SAN ANTONIO (AP) — Jimmy Walker made himself right at home on the Texas Open leaderboard.
Walker won his hometown event Sunday to become the first two-time winner this season on the PGA Tour, beating fellow Texan Jordan Spieth by four strokes.
"(Spieth) really made me fight hard," Walker said. "He kept hitting it close, and I had to keep making putts."
Walker made birdie putts of 15 feet at No. 16 and 17 feet at the 17th in a 2-under 70 that left him at 11-under 277 at TPC San Antonio, a 35-minute drive from his home.
The 36-year-old former Baylor player won the Sony Open in Hawaii by nine shots in January and has a tour-best five victories in the past two seasons.
"Everybody says it's hard to win at home," Walker said, "(but) it's hard to win any week — home, away, out of the country, it's hard. So I feel good."
Spieth also finished with a 70, making four late birdies in a row. The 21-year-old Dallas player was coming off a playoff victory two weeks ago at Innisbrook.
"It actually looked like I had a chance," said Spieth, seven shots back with eight to play. "I didn't think that would be possible. You're never out of it in this game, but Jimmy shut that down pretty quickly with his made putts."
Walker and Spieth will move to career highs in the world ranking, with Spieth going from sixth to fourth and Walker from 13th to 10th.
"That's cool," Spieth said. "But I'm not pinching myself, because there are three guys ahead."
FedEx Cup champion Billy Horschel was third at 4 under after a 71.
Daniel Summerhays, second last year behind Steven Bowditch, tied for fourth with Chesson Hadley at 3 under. Summerhays closed with a 69, and Hadley had a 71.
Doral winner Dustin Johnson shot his second straight 68 to match Ryan Palmer at 2 under. Palmer also had a 68.
"With the same wind the last three days it helped to figure out the course, and I played well," Johnson said, noting steady wind at past 20 mph much of this week. "I just played a couple of holes bad. Other than that, I played a lot of good golf in between and if I played those other holes better it's a whole different tournament."
Phil Mickelson, looking for some momentum heading to the Masters, closed with a 76 to drop into a tie for 30th at 4 over.
Ten players finished under par, with the Oaks Course playing the toughest on the PGA Tour this season with a 74.581 stroke average — more than two shots over par. The previous high was PGA National's Champion course at 1.832 over par for the Honda Classic.
Marc Warren and Harris English failed to crack the top 50 in the world ranking, which would have given them spots in the Masters. Warren, 52nd, needed to finish ahead of Brendan Todd to get in, but closed with a 70 to finish 35th. English, 53rd, needed at least a top 10. His final-round 72 only got him to 30th.
Starring: Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Tip “T.I.” Harris Directed by: Etan Cohen (debut) Written by: Jay Martel (debut) & Ian Roberts (debut) and Etan Cohen (“Tropic Thunder”)
There are two distinct types of Will Ferrell comedies. The first is the variety he’s heavily involved in with writing partner and director Adam McKay (here only a producer), turning out a screenplay that feels like it’s been work shopped in Ferrell’s absurdist head for years before funding for the film came through, like the legendary “Anchorman” or “Step Brothers.” Then there’s the other type, where Ferrell is an actor for hire, adding some surface-level lunacy to a ho-hum script. You can feel him being a team player, but he’s not really invested in the material. Ferrell’s latest, “Get Hard,” featuring the currently-hot Kevin Hart as his co-star, falls squarely into the lesser Ferrell movie category, likely with more racism and homophobia than you might expect from an R-rated comedy in 2015.
Ferrell stars as James King, a somewhat dim multi-millionaire Wall Street broker set to marry the gold-digging daughter (Alison Brie) of his cutthroat boss (Craig T. Nelson). King crosses paths daily with Darnell (Hart), the hard-working owner of a car wash service for the rich brokers in the firm, looking to scrape together $30 grand to move his family to a new home in a nicer part of town. When King is framed and convicted of fraud, a judge throws the book at him, foregoing the typical white collar minimum security sentence and instead sending King off to San Quentin for 10 years. Terrified for what will become of his life behind bars, the lily-white King solicits help from Darnell who, because he’s black, King assumes has been to prison. Darnell has not, in fact, ever been incarcerated, but he takes King’s money to become his prison coach anyway.
