2021 Valero Texas Open tee times, TV coverage, viewer's guide
Corey Conners puts on the champion's boots after winning the 2019 Valero Texas Open.
The Valero Texas Open will feature plenty of players getting in one last start before playing in the first men's major of 2021. In addition to those preparing to make the jump from TPC San Antonio to Augusta, the tournament offers a the final opportunity for a tour pro to earn an invitation to the Masters by virtue of winning the event.
Corey Conners did just that back in 2019 and many will want to follow in the Canadian’s footsteps as he attempts to defend his title (the 2020 event was canceled due to COVID-19). Rickie Fowler, Charley Hoffman, Brandt Snedeker and Jim Furyk are just a few regular competitors at the Masters hoping to have to make last-minute plans to fly to Georgia after a victory this week. Fowler, notably, hasn’t missed a Masters since 2010.
Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from the event, but there is still a strong field at the Valero Texas Open, one of the longest-running tournaments on tour. Phil Mickelson, Tony Finau, Abraham Ancer and Hideki Matsuyama also will be teeing off.
The winner will receive 500 FedEx Cup points and a $1.386 million share of the $7.7 million purse.
