Top golfers in the world set to tee off at San Antonio's Valero Texas Open
Golfers interested in participating in the 2016 Valero Texas Open have until April 15 to commit to the tournament, but already event organizers have lined up a compelling lineup of players expected to compete in San Antonio next month. The list includes defending Texas Open champion Jimmy Walker.
Walker, who lives in nearby Boerne, became the fourth Greater San Antonio resident to win the Alamo City tournament when he beat out Jordan Spieth by four strokes last year. Last season, Walker successfully defended his Sony Open in Hawaii title and advanced to the FedExCup Playoffs for a sixth consecutive year. He was ranked 16th in the FedExCup standings.
Several other notable names have committed to the 2016 Texas Open, scheduled for April 21-24 at the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio. They include Dustin Johnson and Patrick Reed, who are currently ranked No. 9 and No. 10 in the world.
In fact, Texas Open officials said nine players ranked among the top 25 globally have confirmed plans to play in San Antonio.
