Welcome back to LazyBets Golf picks and parlays!The Valero Texas Open has assembled a really strong field this week. With The Masters only one week away, this is the last tune up before one of the years biggest events. Some of golf's elite will be hoping they are driving up Magnolia Lane carrying a win in the Lone Star State.
Andrew Landry got his Maiden PGA Tour victory here just last year. at the TPC It was a proper homecoming for the Texan who is a native of San Antonio. He ended up capturing this tournament and winning by 2 strokes over fellow Texan Sean O'Hair and Trey Mullinax. Landry, who was born in Port Neches-Groves, will be looking to put up a strong defense in front of his home crowd.
The ever popular Rickie Fowler will be fresh as he did not play in last weeks WGC Match Play Championship. Matt Kuchar came very close to win number 3. It would have been an incredible accomplishment this early in the season. He ended up just losing out in the Championship Match on Sunday evening to fellow American Kevin Kisner.
3 time Major Champion and local favorite Jordan Spieth will be looking to get his game in top order with a home crowd behind him. It would be a timely win heading to Augusta next week where he plays his best golf. Spieth was runner up here to Jimmy Walker in 2015.
A man who's chances look good this week is former FedEx champion Billy Horschel. Horschel has some really good course form around here. He is a 5 time champion on the PGA Tour and seems to always be confident of winning when he comes to TPC San Antonio. His best form figures from this event are T3 (2013), 3 (2015), T4 (2016) and T11 in (2018). It wouldn't be a surprise to see him in with a big chance late on Sunday evening. He's looking to enter the winners circle for the 6th time on the tour. It's on a course that he seems very comfortable. Horschel has always been a great ball striker. His short game has been strong too. He ranks 6th this season in putting which makes him very dangerous whenever he tees it up.
A player who seems to love it around here is Charley Hoffman. Hoffman hasn't been at his best this season. He's still looking for his first top 10 in 11 starts on tour. That said, he looked a bit more like himself 2 weeks ago in the Valspar Championship. He played quality golf finishing in T18. Hoffman will be looking forward to getting his 2019 campaign off and running at a track where he has a host of great finishes. Outside of his win here in 2016 where he edged out Texan Patrick Reed to claim the title, Hoffman has numerous quality finishes. He placed T13 (2010), T2 (2011), T13 (2012), T3 (2013), T11 (2014) and T11 (2015) which suggests he could be a contender this week. This is a very happy hunting ground for him.
Ryan Palmer is a 3 time PGA Tour winner. He will have a bit of home cooking this week and some local support in his home state. Palmer was born in Amirillo and has consistantly finished well in the TPC San Antonio. Finishes include T9 (2010), T15 (2013), T6 (2015), T4 (2016) and T6 (2017). Palmer has 3 top 10s in 9 stars this season. He ranks 6th in Greens in Regulation so far this season. This suggests he's in very good form. That could be a strong sign for a player who has finished well here in the past. coming into a place he has had some The Valero Texas Open may well be win number 4 for Palmer. We could realistically see a local Champion on Sunday evening. His odds are quite attractive.
