Andy Swales provides course and current form stats for the Valero Texas Open which tees-off at TPC San Antonio on Thursday...

"With the exception of his recent experience at The Masters, Sergio Garcia has competed pretty tidily this year, and will hope to banish his major blues in Texas"

For the third time since the middle of March, the PGA Tour is in the Lone Star state, for this week's Valero Texas Open.

First held at nearby Brackenridge Park in 1922, the Texas Open moved to TPC San Antonio eight years ago and has remained at the Greg Norman-designed course ever since.

The Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio was opened in January 2010 and, within five months, had hosted its maiden PGA Tour event.

Norman, who built the course in consultation with Sergio Garcia, constructed a venue that is generally flat but with a number of slight elevations along the way.

There is little in the way of water, although the Oaks Course has plenty of sand, with slightly larger than average greens that offer numerous subtle undulations.

TPC San Antonio can be located north of the city centre and around 60 miles south-west of Austin.

Star Attraction

The biggest name teeing-up on Thursday is Sergio Garcia, who is the only member of the world's top 20 taking part.

The Spaniard is making only his second appearance at TPC San Antonio and will be desperate to shake off the disappointment of suffering a calamitous title defence at Augusta National earlier this month.

With the exception of his recent experience at The Masters, Garcia has competed pretty tidily this year, and will hope to banish his major blues in Texas.

Horses for Courses

Those with a solid Oaks Course history include former champions Kevin Chappell, Charley Hoffman and Brendan Steele.

All three have played quite well during 2018, are currently inside the world's top 50, and will fancy their chances in what is arguably the third weakest PGA Tour field of the calendar year so far.

Pat Perez, Billy Horschel, Ryan Palmer and Daniel Summerhays also have a strong San Antonio past, although Horschel is the only one of these four to have posted a top-10 during the past 10 weeks.

The world No 78 ended a string of disappointing performances in recent months to finish tied-fifth at Harbour Town on Sunday.

As for Palmer, though not in great shape right now, does tend to play well in Texas.

Good Current Form

As for those playing well at present, check out Si Woo Kim, Ryan Moore, Luke List, Beau Hossler and Jamie Lovemark.

List secured his second PGA Tour podium of the year on Sunday, over a Harbour Town course not really expected to suit his big-hitting game.

And the consistent Moore must be a real threat this week at the Oaks Course where he tied-18th last year.

In 2017, Moore was inside the top 10 at TPC San Antonio for Greens in Regulation and Driving Accuracy, while Palmer was fourth in GiR.
