The wind and the rain arrived Friday, perhaps a prelude to a nasty weekend. Leave it to a pair of Texans — Jimmy Walker and Jordan Spieth — to thrive at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
Walker made some tough par saves and wound up bogey-free at Spyglass Hill with a 3-under-par 69. Spieth was down the coast at Monterey Peninsula, where he called the birdie on his final hole the best of his life. He’s only 20, but it was a proud moment.
The slight advantage would go to Walker, who was at 9-under 135. Already a two-time winner this season, Spieth was at 9-under 134 and headed to Pebble Beach, which can be brutal in nasty weather.
