Golf: Ace Venturer’s Valero Open Tips


THE TPC San Antonio (Oaks Course) in Texas has hosted the Valero Open since 2010. There were only 10 players under par last year and the scoring average was 74.52 which was the highest on Tour.

There is a good field for this week including last week’s winner Branden Grace, Patrick Reed and Jimmy Walker.

JB Holmes came back from a shoulder injury to finish T4 at The Masters. In his last seven starts he has had five top-11 finishes and looks to be back to some kind of form. A good all-round game will be important here and Holmes has that. He hits the ball a mile and is No.1 for approaches from 50-125 yards and second on approaches from 150-175 yards.

He also has a one putt percentage of 42.66% (16th on Tour) which could come in very handy. The weather could play an important part this weekend with wind and rain coming in on Sunday.

I was really impressed with Bryson DeChambeau when I saw him in the Walker Cup last September at Royal Lytham & St Annes. He kept his amateur status till he had competed in The Masters where he won the Silver Medal for leading amateur. Last week at the RBC Heritage, in his first professional outing, he finished a superb T4. In fact the RBC was his eighth consecutive made cut in a professional tournament. His scientific approach to golf seems to be working and expect another solid performance this week. Now where’s my caliper and anemometer?

    Sa1nt Hoffman has been having a good run recently but seems to fade come the weekend. Hope your picks do well.

    Daniel Summerhays 11/4 for top 20 finish. Finished in the top 10 for the past 3 years so he clearly knows his way around here despite his usual indifferent form elsewhere.

    I’m on JB Holmes as well.
    I’m also going to do Brooks Koepka who I have followed since Ace flagged him up. Thought you might be on him Ace. I’ve bet him already but was just wondering if you have any thoughts on him not being involved as you are a fan of his?
