This week, the PGA Tour travels to San Antonio, Texas for the 2024 Valero Texas Open. Let’s take a look at this week’s tournament from a Draftkings perspective.

Before I dive into my Draftkings player selections for this week’s PGA Tour event, let’s take a quick look at the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a player’s success at this week’s Valero Texas Open.

The 2024 Valero Open will be played at TPC San Antonio (Oaks Course) in San Antonio, Texas. The AT&T Oaks Course is a par 72 that measures approximately 7,378 yards.

2024 Valero Texas Open Draftkings Player Selections

Hideki Matsuyama $10,600

The 2021 Masters winner arrives at this week’s event on the heels of three consecutive top 12 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a win at the 2024 Genesis Invitational in February.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2024 Valero Texas Open field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Hideki Matsuyama ranks seventh in strokes gained approach, ninth in strokes gained off the tee, fifth in GIR (greens in regulation), sixth in birdie or better percentage, and second in bogey avoidance.

Hideki Matsuyama has posted quality results at the TPC San Antonio in the past. Matsuyama finished 15th at the 2023 Valero Texas Open.

Billy Horschel $8,900

Billy Horschel has accumulated three top 12 finishes in his last four tournaments played on the PGA Tour, including a seventh-place result at last week’s 2024 Texas Children’s Houston Open.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2024 Valero Texas Open field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Billy Horschel ranks eighth in bogey avoidance, 11th in GIR (greens in regulation), and 11th in strokes gained off the tee.

Similar to Matsuyama, Horschel has posted quality results at this week’s PGA Tour event previously. Horschel finished 11th at the 2018 Valero Texas Open.

Alex Noren $8,700

Since the beginning of January, Alex Noren has played seven events on the PGA Tour. In those seven tournaments just noted, Noren has accumulated five top 26 finishes, including a ninth-place result at the 2024 Cognizant Classic in the Palm Beaches five weeks ago.

Ben Griffin $6,600

Two weeks ago, Ben Griffin fired a second round 68 at the 2024 Valspar Championship en route to an eventual 17th place finish.

In my opinion, Ben Griffin presents outstanding fantasy value at the low Draftkings price of only $6,600.

Additional golfers I like to play well this week (with Draftkings price noted): Rory McIlroy $12,300: Christiaan Bezuidenhout $7,900: Aaron Rai $7,800: J.J. Spaun $6,300.
