Jimmy Walker celebrates after making his putt on the 18th hole to win the final round of the Valero Texas Open on March 29, 2015 in San AntonioHometown hero Jimmy Walker captured his fifth US PGA Tour title on Sunday, firing a two-under-par 70 final round to win the $6.2 million Texas Open by four strokes. Walker, who lives only a half-hour's drive from the TPC San Antonio course, led by four shots when the day began and finished on 11-under 277 to defeat fellow Texan Jordan Spieth by that same margin. You can feel the love from your friends and family," Walker said. It was the second US PGA triumph of the season for Walker, who won his second consecutive Sony Open in Hawaii title earlier this year and also captured last year's Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and the 2013 Frys.com Open.
