”It would be huge (to win) there’s no lying about that. I’m 39 now, you wonder how many opportunities you will get going forward with all the youngsters coming through,” Walters said. ”Maybe like a good red wine I’ll get better with age, but I don’t know, it would be nice to take advantage tomorrow.”

Walters made a perfect start at the first with a birdie from 20 feet, with five birdies in his round.
