2024 Valero Texas Open preview

The Valero Texas Open is this week, and the PGA Tour remains in Texas for a two-week run ahead of the Masters. The TPC San Antonio Oaks Course is a Greg Norman design that ballstrikers tend to like above any kind of player. Length is not a big factor here.

2024 Valero Texas Open rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Rory McIlroy: McIlroy is a top three to five player in the world, and his driving will carry over here as Greg Norman designs reward it a lot.

2. Ludvig Aberg: If driving matters, then here's your guy, as Aberg hits the everliving life out of the ball.

3. Max Homa: I like where Homa's game is heading into the Masters, even though his Players result was mediocre.

4. Hideki Matsuyama: The former Masters champion is in good shape, won at Riv and should get a good tune-up this week.

5. Russell Henley: Henley has been in the right direction for March, except for an MC at The Players.

6. Corey Conners: Conners won here for the second time in 2023, and he hasn't done a whole lot lately to build on that.

7. Tommy Fleetwood: Fleetwood has shown flashes of brilliance this year, and he's sprinkled in some duds.

8. Collin Morikawa: I can't figure out Morikawa, and I don't think he can figure himself out either. But even this version of him is still very good.

9. Matt Fitzpatrick: Fitz is turning in good finishes, but they seem to be followed by a bad one. He was T-5 at the Players, so...

10. Lucas Glover: Glover has been playing pretty well recently, including a good start at the Valspar. Likes the golf course.
