2016 Valero Texas Open Betting Preview

  • Charley Hoffman's 6 appearances at San Antonio have seen him go: 13-2-13-3-11-11
  • JB Holmes racked up 5 top-fifteen finishes in his last 6 strokeplay starts

The Course

The AT&T Four Oaks Course in San Antonio has hosted the Texas Open since 2010 and it can be a tricky venue to master, particularly if the wind blows. It is a course that defending champion Jimmy Walker knows well after he followed up his third place effort in the inaugural 2010 event with victory twelve months ago.

Walker heads here as a 16/1 favourite and he is joined in the field by last week's RBC Heritage winner, Branden Grace (18/1), and Zach Johnson (22/1), who fell from contention with a horror round of 77 last Sunday.

The Best Bet

It is JB Holmes who could prove to be the best bet for a tournament that he has performed well in the past having finished in the top-fifteen in two of his four appearances here. Holmes has previous in Texas having won the Houston Open in 2015 and he heads into this tournament in fine fettle after racking up five top-eleven finishes in six starts, with a career best effort at a major yielding a tie for 4th at the Masters recently.

Holmes is putting brilliantly and has been superb at finding greens of late, which should stand him in good stead on this 7,435 yard track.
Tip #1: JB Holmes (each way) @ 25/1 with Paddy Power.

Texas Form

This is a tournament that doesn't really boast particularly strong trends but finding greens in regulation and strokes gained putting are two statistics that we will be putting a lot of faith in.

That leads us to Russell Henley, who currently ranks 6th on the PGA Tour for strokes gained. Henley came out of a recent mini-slump with a top-five effort in Houston before securing a top-25 at the Heritage and he will be relishing another outing in Texas, where he has finished no worse than seventh in four of his last six appearances.
Tip #2: Russell Henley (each way) @ 45/1 with Bet 365.

Don't Hassle The Hoff

Meanwhile, Charley Hoffman's six outings at Four Oaks in San Antonio have seen him finish 13-2-13-3-11-11 and he is another player who has a fantastic record after racking up eleven top-twenty finishes in his past fifteen strokeplay starts in the state. Hoffman hasn't missed a cut in nine starts on the tour this year and he can compete well into the weekend.
Tip #3: Charley Hoffman (each way) @ 28/1 with Paddy Power.

Summerhays Makes Appeal

Finally, Daniel Summerhays has been solid without putting four rounds of golf together in one event this year but his 69 on the Sunday of the Heritage was timely. He is a player who enjoys playing Four Oaks as his last three appearances at this course have seen him go 7-2-4 and he is worth each-way attention again.
Tip #4: Daniel Summerhays (each way) @ 66/1 with Betfred.
