2021 Valero Texas Open 4/1/21 - PGA Picks, Odds & Betting Predictions

Only one week remains before the year's first major, the Masters, but first the PGA Tour will make a stop in San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open. Because the Texas Open is played the week preceding the Masters, most of the world's top-ranked players are skipping this event to prepare for the Augusta National, but there are notable names nonetheless teeing off on Thursday at TPC San Antonio.

Dustin Johnson is the biggest surprise taking part this week in Texas. Johnson has played the event just once. Other notables include Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, who has struggled for over a year and is not in the Masters field unless he earns a victory this week in this event, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson, Matt Kuchar, Tony Finau and Abraham Ancer. 

The Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio has Bermuda grass that is overseeded with ryegrass in the fairways while the greens are overseeded with poa trivialis and bentgrass. The course is a 7,435-yard par 72, with tree-lined narrow fairways as well wider open fairways, greens surrounded by bunkers and difficult rough, but very little elevation change over the 18 holes.
