SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS --It's the Texas Open, so I'll be watching the Texans -- three-time champion Justin Leonard from Dallas, Masters playoff loser Chad Campbell of Andrews, Austin's Joe Ogilvie and Rich Beem, and Amarillo's Ryan Palmer, not to mention the initials guys -- J.J.  Henry, J.L. Lewis and J.P. Hayes. (Who shot J.R.?)  Twenty-nine Texans are in the 156-man field, if you define a Texan as someone currently residing in Texas -- e.g., Anthony Kim of Dallas. Besides, Texas is the theme. With its new slot in the schedule, the Texas Open kicks off a three-tournament "Texas Swing" -- not to be confused with the Bob Wills variety that is preserved on vinyl.If the Lone Star legends fail to keep me entertained, I'll walk a few holes with the suddenly-watchable Alex Cejka. The Iron Curtain refugee must still be reeling from his final-round 79 in The Players, but a little San Antonio heat, humidity and wind could be just the tonic he needs.

Make mine with jalapeno.
