What I'll Be Watching For Saturday at the Valero Texas Open
SAN ANTONIO, TX. -- Paul Goydos? Sure, because I want him to win. Ted Purdy? Yes, because I want him to win, as well. (I've had a warm spot in my heart for the Arizonan since '05, when he marched onto the Masters practice range with his childhood-to-Tour swing coach, Pam Barnett.) Mathias Gronberg? I'll only be watching him if he gets in my face with, say, another round in the mid-sixties.Mostly, though, I'll be watching for Justin Leonard, who is tied for second, to keep hitting the ball next to his previous day's divots. Leonard has won the Texas Open three times, and he has been the runner-up or better in five of his ten goes at the La Cantera Resort Course. Asked yesterday afternoon if there was something about the course that set up particularly well for him, Leonard said, "I get to answer that question a lot, don't I?"I'll be very surprised if he doesn't pay a weekend visit to the press room.
