JW Marriott TPC San Antonio, San Antonio, TX • Purse: $6,200,000

Action on the golf course seems to show no signs of slowing down as the bandwagon moves from the Augusta Masters to the Valero Texas Open. The famed tournament will be played at San Antonio, Texas from April 21 – 24. There is total prize money of US $ 6.2 million on offer, of which the winner will take home US $ 1.12 million and there is also the small matter of 500 FedExCup points up for grabs for the winner.

The venue for the tournament will be TPC San Antonio (AT & T Oaks). With a mileage of 7, 435 yards and a par-score of 72 and is one of the most serene courses on the tour.

The TPC is one of the two courses that winds through Texas Hill Country making its debut in 2010. Don’t be fooled by its looks as the Oaks presents a tougher challenge for the participants than the neighbouring Canyons course.

Designed by the legendary Greg Norman and assisted by Sergio Garcia, the Oaks has everything to throw a challenge to the participants – narrow fairways, bunkers as deep as 12 feet and native vegetation which makes it highly difficult for participants.

Who can forget the struggles of Kevin Na four years ago at the par-4 ninth hole recording a 16, struggling to free himself from rocks and underbrush!

But the tournament is not just about the on-field play as the Valero Texas Open annually ranks among the PGA Tour’s top five in charitable collections. Last year itself, the number topped US $ 10.4 million for San Antonio-area charities. Since its inception, this tournament has been successful in collecting US $ 100 million for charities.

On to the field, this year roster is a very competitive one with defending champion Jimmy Walker and fellow Texan Patrick Reed heading the list. Nine of the top 30 players in the current world rankings are expected to provide a stern fight for the top honours. Reed, number 11 in the rankings, tops that list and will be joined by the last minute entrants – Matt Kuchar, Phil Mickelson and Ernie Els.
Mickelson will be making his third straight visit, while Kuchar’s will be his fifth in a row at the Valero Texas Open. Bryson DeChambeau, the exciting amateur, will be teeing off once again this week after making his pro debut at the RBC Heritage. Among others, watch out for Oklahoma freshman Brad Dalke who was last year’s Junior PGA Championship winner and will be testing his skills against PGA Tour competition for the first time.

Mickelson finished 30th last year and will be desperate to move up the ladder in his third visit. Charley Hoffman loves this course having finished among the top 15 nine times out of his last 10 visits. Last year saw Walker stave off a tough challenge from Jordan Spieth to emerge with a four-stroke victory. Can he become the third man this century to win back-to-back Valero Texas Open titles, behind Justin Leonard and Zach Johnson?

Golf Tips For The Valero Texas Open

Bryson Dechambeau did us a huge favour last week when finishing a T4 at 66/1 in his first tournament as a professional. We will stick with him this week too and hopefully go three places better and get his first win on the PGA Tour. He has had a cracking couple of weeks with a fine showing at the Masters in his last event as an amateur. He will quickly show his class and climb the rankings in the world.

We have to mention last week’s European Tour winner at the Open de Espana Andrew Johnston who we tipped up to win. What odds did we get, well 100/1 was the shortest price on offer at the start of the event. We got 140/1 at Betfair Exchange, did we forget to mention that we tipped the second Joost Luiten.

What a week!!! Same again please with Bryson Dechambeau.

Recommended Betting Tip


Bryson Dechambeau to win the Valero Texas Open 33/1 – 2pts each way

Jimmy Walker was a convincing winner of this tournament last year, although he is not in the same form he could feature but the odds are a bit cramped therefore we will pass him by and instead go for Charley Hoffman who is slowly coming back to form. He has shown up on the leaderboards in several of the last events to be played and we have a sneaky suspicion this could be his week. He is good value at 40/1 with Coral bookmaker to win.
