2024 Valero Texas Open

April 4 – 7 at TPC San Antonio

This week we look at the Valero Texas Open, the last PGA Tour stop before the first major championship of the year, the Masters Tournament. The proximity to Augusta has helped the field grow in strength this year with major champions, Rory McIlroy, Matt Fitzpatrick and Collin Morikawa choosing to tee it up!

An event established since 1922, the TPC San Antonio has been the regular track in recent years, a Greg Norman design, that puts a premium on being strong and long off the tee. The Bermuda grass greens are overseeded with Poa, making them a touch slower than normal weeks on tour. This week’s weather looks perfect for Thursday and Friday with the weekend more changeable, with winds for Saturday and rain for Sunday.

It’s the life of Riley for Davis

Last week’s Houston Open saw Davis Riley starting to look like his old self on the PGA Tour. Maybe it’s the move to Texas that has done the trick for the twenty-seven-year-old from Mississippi. The State of Texas is where Riley won one of his two KFT titles back in 2020, and funnily enough, it was here at TPC San Antonio.

His PGA Tour career has seen peaks and troughs for Riley, and he has been in a slump for nearly a year now since winning the Zurich New Orleans pairs event with Nick Hardy.

With the promise of improvement in his long game from last week that saw him rank in the top 5 tee-to-green, this one looks like the perfect week to jump back on board with Davis Riley with all those good memories attached to the track and the State of Texas.

The best price for Davis Riley is +8000 with Bet365.

Golf Pick: Davis Riley to Win Outright (+8000) at Bet365

Golf Pick: Davis Riley to Finish Top 10 (+800) at Bet365

Can Spaun Finally Kick Start His 2024 Season?

Yes, we believe this is the week that the 2022 Valero Texas Open champion J. J. Spaun can kickstart his 2024. The Californian has been struggling badly to make cuts on the PGA Tour, so last week’s solid Houston Open effort was a huge eye-catching performance when he ranked 4th in Shots Gained on approach.

The thirty-three-year-old had only made two cuts in 2024 prior and not finished in the top 50 of any events until last week’s effort.

The timing of rounding back into form for J. J. Spaun could hardly be better, as his career-best performance was here in 2022 when he won his maiden PGA Tour event in fine style.

There is no doubt that TPC San Antonio is a course specialists’ type of track, so with that in mind, bet on J. J. Spaun winning a second Valero Texas Open in three years.

Golf Pick: J. J. Spaun to Win Outright (+12500) at Bet365

Golf Pick: J. J. Spaun to Finish Top 10 (+1100) at Bet365

Charley Hoffman Loves TPC San Antonio

There can be little or no doubt that the favorite course and event for Charley Hoffman over his long PGA Tour career is the Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio, an event he has been runner-up on three occasions while being the 2017 winner.

A couple of months ago, Hoffman was the surprise runner-up on the PGA Tour at the Phoenix Open, and the forty-seven-year-old veteran could count himself unlucky not to win having run into an inspired Nick Taylor.

The Californian has not been seen on a leaderboard since, but his game still looks in decent nick so if there is one place to consider him, it is here this week.

You can back the veteran PGA Tour player to win outright at the price of +10000, along with a top 20 props bet at +400.

Golf Pick: Charley Hoffman to Win Outright (+10000) at Bet365

Golf Pick: Charley Hoffman to Finish Top 20 (+400) at Bet365
