Walker soars into Texas Open lead

San Antonio, TX (SportsNetwork.com) – Jimmy Walker fired a 5-under 67 on
Friday to move one stroke clear of the field at the Texas Open.

Walker ended 36 holes at 6-under-par 138. Walker, who finished third at this
event in 2010, claimed his fourth PGA Tour win earlier this year at the Sony
Open in Hawaii.

Charley Hoffman, who led after a windy first round, managed an even-par 72 in
round two. He was joined in second place at minus-5 by Aaron Baddeley (71).

Texas native Jordan Spieth carded a 3-under 69 to improve into a share of
fourth place at 4-under-par 140. He stands alongside Kevin Na (68).

Former Masters champions Phil Mickelson (72) and Zach Johnson (71) headline a
group of five players tied for sixth place at minus-2. They were joined there
by Brendan Steele (68), reigning FedExCup champion Billy Horschel (70) and
Chris Kirk (71).

The wind was not nearly as strong in Friday’s second round on the AT&T Oaks
Course at TPC San Antonio. Those that played early Thursday and late Friday
got the worst of the wind and all of those players finished over par for two
