This week we head back to Texas for the Valero Texas Open, and the field is wide open. With the favorite coming in with odds of +1600, you pick the winner this week at the TPC San Antonio and you’re going to be extremely richer than you were before. So, let’s waste no time.
Here are some golfers to consider throwing on your card for the 2016 Valero Texas Open.
USA TODAY Sports
Charley Hoffman - Charley Hoffman has finished 17th or better in three of his last six events and he hasn’t missed a cut since CareerBuilder back in January. Hoffman is starting to find consistency in his form and is slowly inching closer to becoming a regular in the top-25. As for this course, Hoffman has six top-15 finishes at the TPC San Antonio and was runner-up back in 2011. I’ll give Hoffman a strong look this week with odds of +2500.
Zach Johnson - Zach Johnson has been a little all over the place the past couple of weeks after missing the cut at the Masters and finishing 33rd at the RBC Heritage. However, Johnson does have three top-10 finishes this season and has won the Valero Texas Open twice. Johnson was a back-to-back winner at the Valero Texas Open in 2008 and 2009. Johnson simply has as good of chance to win this week as anybody, and you can get him with odds of +1800.
Jimmy Walker - Jimmy Walker has the best odds of any player this week at +1600. I’ll take it. Walker won the Valero Texas Open last season with a -11 to par, just holding off Jordan Spieth. Walker now has a chance to win this course back-to-back seasons for the first time since Zach Johnson. Walker has missed the cut just once this season and did just have a top-20 finish at the Houston Open. Walker is also 29th in driving distance, 12th in birdie average and 10th in scoring average. I’ll take the defending champ with these crazy odds.
Kevin Chappell - Kevin Chappell hasn’t won a PGA event yet, but he’s getting awfully close with a runner-up finish at the Arnold Palmer and top-10 finish at the RBC Heritage. Chappell has now made the cut in four of his last five events and has three top-10 finishes overall. On this course, Chappell has a couple of top-15 finishes and was runner-up at the Valero Texas Open back in 2011. Take his current form and his history on this course, and there’s a lot to like with Chappell and his +4000 odds.
Chris Kirk - Speaking of good form, Chris Kirk has finished 23rd or better in three of his last four starts. Kirk has bounced back fine from injury, making the cut in nine of 13 events and placing in the top-25 five times. Kirk should continue his impressive run at the Valero Texas Open where he’s made the cut twice and finished sixth last season. Kirk is certainly worth a shot this week with odds of +5000.
