The Valero Texas Open Is On!
The winds blew this year at the 2017 Valero Texas Open in San Antonio, Texas. Pro Am and Pro golfers were ready for a week of bogeys, birdies, and aces. AT&T Oaks Course has been home for the Valero Texas Open for six years now. This year the PGA Tour celebrates ninety-five years of spectacular play, wins, and losses. While few golfers call Texas home, some call it windy. During the week, you heard from Jimmy Walker, who announced he was diagnosed with Lyme disease. Defending champion Charley Hoffman is no stranger to TPC. In fact, TPC is a golf course he feels comfortable playing. Patrick Reed sure felt home this week at VTO. He mentions owning twelve or fourteen pairs of cowboy boots. Yee-haw!
Before round one on Thursday, golfers took to the course for practice on Wednesday. Winds were blowing throughout the week, but the rain stayed away.
The week quickly came down to Sunday. After a significant first and second round, Kevin Chappell led the course in the final round. It was quite a finish when Kevin took his first PGA Tour victory with a birdie putt. The reaction was fantastic from Kevin, his caddy, and the spectators.
Folks, the Valero Texas Open has done it again.
