PGA Valero Texas Open Free Picks
SAN ANTONIO, TX (ATS Consultants) - The PGA Tour returns to Texas at the TPC San Antonio for the final tune-up before The Masters.
Ben Curtis it the defending champion but is an 80-1 longshot in this tournament according to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv. Some of the top names are taking off in preparations for the first Major. The favorite Rory McIlroy, will be joined by Charl Schwartzel and Patraig Harrington-all of whom have won Major tournaments.
The former U.S. Amateur champion looks for his fourth PGA Tour win and he's due. He hasn't won since the 2010 Barclays but he's getting closer. He's had 13 top-10 finishes since that last win. He's the highest-ranked player in the field. He finished in the top 10 in the previous four starts. He was tied for 13th at this event last year.
Justin Leonard 80/1
Leonard is from Texas and won it twice at a different venue. He's a longshot because he's not having a great year. He's not a long hitter for the 7,435 yard course, but he can hit it straight and knows how to win in his home state.
The developing 22-yard old rookie from the University of Georgia hasn't put a complete round together yet, but is getting closer. He tied for eight last week at Harbour Town, good for his first top-10 finish. He's eager to join John Huh as a rookie winner on the Tour.
