Valero Texas Open: How to watch, streaming, preview, tee times, and more


The PGA Tour will remain in The Lone Star state for another week, as the Valero Texas Open takes center stage immediately before The Masters.

Of the 90 players teeing it up at Augusta National, 25 will compete at TPC San Antonio this week. That list includes Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Tommy Fleetwood, Max Homa, and young Swedish phenom Ludvig Åberg.

Last year in San Antonio, Canadian Corey Conners prevailed by one shot over Sam Stevens, marking his second career victory at the Valero Texas Open. Funny enough, Conners’ only two PGA Tour wins have come at this event—he also won here in 2019.

Fresh of his victory in San Antonio last year, Conners then missed the cut at The Masters, ending a stretch of three straight top 10s at Augusta.

Other past winners of the Valero Texas Open include Jordan Spieth, Zach Johnson, Adam Scott, and Charley Hoffman, all of whom are in the field this week.

The Valero Texas Open dates back to 1922 and is currently the third oldest event on the PGA Tour. It has been contested in San Antonio since its inception, remaining in one city longer than any other event held on tour. The tournament established its current home at TPC San Antonio in 2010, the same year the Greg Norman design opened for play.
