PGA Tour — Shane Lowry didn't appear to perturbed to finish 21 shots behind Jimmy Walker in the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio.
A pair of weekend 75s left the Clara man in joint 58th on 10 over par as Walker shot 70 to claim his fifth PGA Tour win — and a pair of custom made cowboy boots — by four shots from fellow Texan Jordan Spieth (also 70) on 11 under par. Scores
Lowry has a week off now to practice in Lake Nona with his coach Neil Manchip for his first appearance in the Masters at Augusta National, as he reminded his Twitter fans.
"To play this well at home in front of everybody, it's amazing," Walker said. "I don't know how else to describe it or I'd be a writer, like you guys. I don't know how to describe it. It's cool."
Like Spieth, the Texan is one of the fancied contenders for the Masters.
"I'm looking forward to it," Walker said. "You definitely wouldn't want to go there not playing well. I'll get a look at the course and just get ready for an amazing week."
