Valero Texas Open Course Preview: Texas Form and Strong Tee-to-Green Will Be Essential

Some players in this field will be using it as a final tune-up, while the rest of the field will be hoping to parlay a win this week, into a start into next week’s big event. Corey Conners did exactly that in 2019 when Monday Qualifying for this event, then won the tournament which gave him his first win, and a spot in the biggest major.

Rory Mcllroy is the current favorite in the odds to win this week's Valero Texas Open. He is one golfer to keep an eye on before wagering on the first major of the season at Augusta”.
