In this video we are going to talk about Jimmy Walkers wife Erin. So before starting this video like this video and subscribe to our youtube channel for future updates. Many people believe that we only go shopping and to the spa “Erin Walker, wife of two-time US Ryder Cup champion Jimmy Walker, laughs.Erin is a vivacious and often outspoken voice on social media, as well as an acerbic writer in the golf press and the author of Tour Wife Travels, a travelogue of life on the pro golf circuit for several years.Her Twitter bio reads as follows: “Golf observer for hire. Show jumper for fun. @jimmywalkerPGA is my husband. I have strong feelings about a lot of things. He’s not.”This is confirmed by a lively and extended phone conversation with CNN from Utah.Erin spent about 30 weeks a year on the road with Jimmy until last year, having given up her dream of attending law school.Rather than retiring to a life of hotel-sponsored luxury, the journalism, advertising, and marketing major joined Team Walker as CEO.Financial controller, contract reviewer, trip planner, event organiser, swing expert on occasion, top motivator, psychotherapist, wife, and mother are just a few of her “many hats.””His ship is being piloted by me. I’m taking care of everything else so Jimmy can focus on golf.”When their children, Mclain (now seven) and Beckett (four), were younger, the couple from Boerne, Texas, travelled around the circuit in an RV full time. Although Jimmy no longer takes road trips because of kindergarten, he does it on occasion. Coach Butch Harmon is “against” him driving himself, thus he gets a driver (too stressful).Erin describes it as a “mobile dwelling.” “We have our own bed, pillows, a washer-dryer, dishwasher, American-size residential refrigerator, four TVs, bunk beds for the kids, and four pairs of rain boots, all of which are things you can’t pack week to week.”I believe you must be a little bit daring because there is always something broken,” she says.They park across from Augusta National during the Masters.Erin describes Augusta as “wonderful.” “Every day, Jimmy comes in, and the boys love having such a large yard to kick around in or play baseball in. It’s reasonable for us.”Erin fits in her passion for showjumping, competing in around 15 events per year across the United States, as if life wasn’t already complicated enough.Erin and Vonn, Tiger Woods’ then-girlfriend, went around Augusta in 2015 and traded stories about mutual friends.The apparent benefits of having a wealthy pro golfer husband are the financial rewards (Walker’s career earnings are slightly north of $23 million) and the amenities that come with celebrity.This year, Erin completed a “bucket list” VIP trip to the Kentucky Derby, and Mclain met his Nascar driver heroes when Jimmy visited the US PGA media day as defending champion. The Masters has a tradition of having partners and children caddy in the Wednesday par-three tournament.Erin confesses that they’ve both had to have a thicker skin and that she’s had to “curb” the want to respond to every critic. She describes herself as “politically acceptable.””I’m not going to say things that will annoy him or his sponsors, but I will say things that are relevant to our daily lives.””She’s quite capable. Jimmy, 38, told CNN at the British Open at Royal Birkdale that his wife “sticks up for me.” “Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Justin Thomas, and Zach Johnson were all in the house with eventual champion Jordan Spieth.Life in another person’s paradise isn’t always a bed of roses for some Tour wives.Other spouses, Erin knows, have given up their dreams of becoming attorneys, dentists, or even professional golfers in order to support their partner.”I congratulate Billy and Brittany on sharing their story.”Erin thinks it’s important for players to have hobbies aside from golf.Jimmy is an award-winning astrophotographer. NASA has featured his images as the astronomy photo of the day on three occasions.”It’s great for him that he has a hobby other than cars and wine,” she says.”This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for him to step away from golf and be creative while also finding his zen.”It helps him see things from a different perspective. There’s a lot more to life than birdies and bogeys on the golf course.”Jimmy’s nights at the telescope, as well as his time on the golf course and range, have been limited since November due to a debilitating illness that has sapped his strength.What do you think about this video?
