SPRINGFIELD, N.J. — Sitcom legend, Jimmie “JJ” Walker, shocked the golfing world, to win his first major championship and, maybe his first golf tournament.
Unbeknownst to many, including this roving reporter, that Walker even plays golf, Jimmie is the first wire-to-wire winner of the PGA since Phil Mickelson in 2005.
Although not at Baltusrol, and unable to watch the television broadcast, the chaotic week full of storms, delays, and binge drinking, we have confirmed Walker shot 65-66-68-67 and is the fifth consecutive first-time winner in a major.
Walker, who like many of us, has battled personal demons, said: “Sometimes things just don’t come easy … There’s a lot of emotion going on out there, I’m not going to lie to you.”
A while ago, regarding Bill Cosby, TMZ reported Walker claims he witnessed Cosby hooking up all the time.
Walker, who worked with Cosby on a movie and on the comedy circuit said: “I actually thought everybody KNEW about all these women.”
