Snedeker has eight wins on tour including the 2016 Farmers Insurance Open but he’s battled injuries at times and his missed cut last week makes one wonder.
T-10. If he is going to win again on tour this is a good spot for him but his odds are too low here.
At pretty high odds of 14 to 1, Jimmy Walker is the betting favorite to win the 2016 Valero Texas Open. He’s yet to win on tour at age 29. Fresh off his first career PGA Tour win last week at the RBC Heritage, Branden Grace from South Africa is co-second choice in the betting this week at 16 to 1 odds. Zach Johnson does have two wins in the Valero Texas Open (2008, 2009).
Thirty-year old Jason Kokrak tied for 6th place last week. Patrick Reed – 16 to 1
Matt Kuchar tied for 9th place last week but after a first round of -4 under he played the last three rounds at +1. Leonard has 12 wins on the PGA Tour but he’s not won a tournament since 2008.
T-12. Branden Grace – 16 to 1
Brooks Koepka tied for 21st place at the Masters in his last start. Jason Kokrak – 40 to 1
J.B. Bryson DeChambeau, Charley Hoffman – 30 to 1 odds each
Chris Kirk missed the cut at the Masters and he tied for 23rd place last week in his last two starts. He’s been playing well enough to win lately but he’s still a tough bet to win for the first time.
T-7. Billy Horschel tied for 17th at the Masters and then tied for 54th last week in the RBC Heritage. Brooks Koepka – 25 to 1
T-2. He did tie for 2nd in this tournament in 2011.
The 2016 Valero Texas Open golf tournament on the PGA Tour is taking place this week from April 21-24, 2016 on the Oaks Course at the TPC San Antonio golf resort located in the Cibolo Canyons area in north San Antonio, Texas. He’s obviously going to win again on the PGA Tour but will it be this week?
T-7. Normally when a player wins on the PGA Tour for the first time I’m leery of him the next week but Branden Grace does already have seven European Tour wins and his first two wins on that tour came in back-to-back weeks in 2012.
Tim Herron won the Valero Texas Open in 1997. He was 3rd here last year to justify his lower odds this week.
Daniel Summerhays – 60 to 1 odds
Daniel Summerhays is 32 years old and he has yet to win on tour but he has a history of playing well in the Valero Texas Open. Matt Kuchar – 20 to 1
Good luck to all the golfers and especially the bettors this week at the 2016 Valero Texas Open!
T-2. Holmes has four PGA Tour wins with his last win coming a little over a year ago at the 2015 Shell Houston Open. Brandt Snedeker – 25 to 1
14. Phil Mickelson – 25 to 1
All golfers with odds of 50 to 1 or less are listed below with comments. Zach Johnson – 20 to 1
The Valero Texas Open dates back to 1922. He has two wins on tour with his last win coming in 2014.
Zach Johnson was in contention last week at the RBC Heritage until he shot a terrible final round of 77 which dropped him into a tie for 33rd place. He does have another win on the European Tour.
T-4. Kirk has four wins on tour with his last win coming in 2015 at Colonial. J.B. The win was the last of four career wins for Ben Curtis on the PGA Tour.
Patrick Reed tied for 49th place at the Masters in his last start. Donald has 11 wins on the PGA and European Tours combined but his last win was in 2012. Then some notable golfers with much higher odds are also listed with comments telling why. He certainly has talent and is a better bet than some of the guys who have not won in a long time above him. Charley has three wins on tour with his last win coming in 2014. Russell Henley tied for 23rd last week. Holmes – 20 to 1
T-15. Kuchar has seven PGA Tour wins but his last win was at the 2014 RBC Heritage over two years ago. Like Zach Johnson, Charley Hoffman was in contention last week until a final round 75 dropped him into a 4th place tie. Reed does have four PGA Tour wins at age 25 but his last win was over 15 months ago. Billy Horschel, Luke Donald – 33 to 1 odds each
Ben Curtis, who shockingly won the British Open in 2003, won the Valero Texas Open in 2012. Keopka hits the ball a mile and is always a threat but he’s only got one win on tour which came 14 months ago at the Phoenix Open. Walker is the defending champion in this event as he beat Jordan Spieth last year by four strokes to win his 5th career PGA tournament. Steele is 33 years old and he’s missed the cut in his last two PGA Tour starts.
Justin Leonard – 175 to 1 odds
As mentioned at the top, Justin Leonard is tied with Arnold Palmer for most wins in the Valero Texas Open with three. Zach has 12 PGA Tour wins with his last win coming in the 2015 British Open last July. With most of the biggest names in golf not playing this week it’s a good week to take a shot and make a bet on a higher odds golfer if you are so inclined.
Phil Mickelson has played well enough to win on tour in 2016 but in his last start he missed the cut at the Masters. He’s 33 years old.
After a decent 10th place at the Masters, Brandt Snedeker missed the cut last week at the RBC Heritage. Horschel has three wins on tour but has not won since 2014. Herron is 46 years old and he does have four wins on tour but his last win was in 2006.
1. Kevin Chappell tied for 9th last week at the RBC Heritage. Arnold Palmer (1960-62) and Justin Leonard (2000, 2001, 2007) jointly hold the record for most wins in the tournament with three each. Chris Kirk, Kevin Chappell, Russell Henley – 45 to 1 odds each
T-4. Kokrak is still looking for his first PGA Tour win. Jordan Spieth finished second here last year but is taking a few weeks off after his Masters meltdown.
Luke Donald had the lead last week going into the final round but he only shot even par to end up in a tie for 2nd place. He does not have a tough field to beat here but can he get the job done this week?
T-7. Jimmy Walker – 14 to 1 odds
T-4. Summerhays was second here in 2014, he was 4th here last year and he was 7th in 2013.
Brendan Steele – 66 to 1 odds
Brendan Steele won the Valero Texas Open in 2011 for his only PGA Tour win to date. In his last start, Jimmy Walker finished tied for 29th at the Masters two weeks ago.
Bryson DeChambeau turned pro last week and turned in a pretty good 4th place tie performance at the RBC Heritage. Mickelson’s last win on tour came at the 2013 British Open which is almost three years ago now. Holmes played very well in his last start finishing tied for 4th place at the Masters. Here is a list of the betting odds for the PGA golfers to win the 2016 Valero Texas Open.. The big news for the 2016 Valero Texas Open is that Phil Mickelson is playing
