Texas Open Picks
The 2010 Valero Texas Open will begin play on Thursday, and our team of writers and handicappers have three suggested picks for this weekend.
Ernie Els 10/1
Els is the top ranked players in the field at seventh in the world and his 2010 has been very strong. He is coming off a missed cut last week, so look for Els to bounce back in this tournament. He has two wins on the year already and five top 10’s. At 10/1, Els is a solid play for the weekend.
Zach Johnson 16/1
While it may be hard to see a golfer winning an event three years in a row, you can’t argue with Johnson’s success in this tournament. Johnson has struggled in recent events, but perhaps playing in a tournament where he has done well in will be what he needs to break through. At 16/1, Johnson is worth a shot this weekend.
Sergio Garcia 25/1
Garcia hasn’t won in 2010, but he has been fairly steady, missing just one cut. Garcia is ranked in the top 30 in the world and this event is not deep in competition, which leaves the door open for Garcia. At 25/1, Garcia should earn some consideration for play this weekend.
The 2010 Valero Texas Open will be played at AT&T Oaks Course in San Antonio, Texas starting on Thursday, May 13 and concluding Sunday, May 16.
