The PGA Tour continues its swing through the Lone Star State this week, as the Valero Texas Open is set to get underway on the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio. Because the Masters is one week away, this field is light on top players. But there are a few big names set to play the second of four PGA Tour events in Texas this year.
Rickie Fowler, currently No. 8 in the world, is paired alongside the defending champion Andrew Landry and 2015 champion Jimmy Walker for the first two rounds. The trio will begin their first round at 8:50 a.m. ET from the 10th tee, and their second round at 1:40 p.m. ET from No. 1.
Jordan Spieth, the runner-up to Walker in 2015, will tee off alongside Billy Horschel and Jhonattan Vegas on No. 1 at 1:40 p.m. ET on Thursday. They’ll begin their second round at 8:50 a.m. ET on Friday morning from the 10th tee.
Now ranked No. 32 in the world, Spieth rolls into San Antonio with the fourth-best odds to win at 20/1. Spieth, 25, hasn’t won on Tour since 2017.
Another notable group: Tony Finau, Matt Kuchar, and Jim Furyk. The trio will start at 9:00 a.m. ET on Thursday morning from the 10th tee and at 1:50 p.m. ET on Friday afternoon on No. 1.
Finau, currently 15th in the world, enters at 14/1 odds. He failed to get out of the group stage at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play last week, as he’s looking for his first Tour win since 2016.
Kuchar, last week’s runner-up at Austin Country Club, has the third-best odds to win at TPC San Antonio. He’s currently ranked 16th in the world and was runner-up in the Texas Open in 2001. His last Tour win came at the Sony Open in January.
Furyk, 48, hasn’t won on Tour since 2015 and arrives off a T17 performance at the Match Play.
