Thanks largely to the promotion during the absurdly high amount of commercial breaks that have occurred during this year’s NCAA March Madness Tournament, excitement for this year’s Masters has mounted quickly.
With Tiger Woods finally in great form again, and tremendous competition trying to take attention away from the 14-time major champion, this is the most highly-anticipated Masters in years.
However, as much as the sports world might have their eyes on Augusta, it should be noted that there is one more PGA Tour event to go first: this week’s Valero Texas Open.
An event that has been running since 1922, the Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio is again hosting a highly-motivated field. A special motivation for most of the course: the winner gets a Masters invite, if they have not already qualified.
