Last week wasn’t exactly a banner one with the RBC Heritage. MLP favorite Bill McGirt was the only one who placed for us, but he hit both the Top 20 and Top 10. Jason Kokrak and Charley Hoffman won two of the matchups. All-in-all it was a -3.7 unit week and now sit at +14.98 for golf plays on the year.
This week is the Valero Texas Open at TPC San Antonio. Last year’s winner was Jimmy Walker, who’s the slight favorite this week. Walker beat Jordan Spieth by four strokes. It’s only the seventh time it’s being played at this course, so tournament history isn’t very relevant.
None of the big names are playing, which is why Walker leads the field with the best odds right around +1600. Usually there’s about five to seven guys each week with odds less than that, so it’s pretty open this week. Part of that number is also affected by the large field of 144.
All picks are once again a half unit.
