Def. Champ: Kevin ChappellThe Valero Texas Open has been a San Antonio tradition since 1922. The third oldest tournament on the PGA TOUR, it attracts many of golf’s top players and an international television audience through coverage by CBS and the Golf Channel. Together with the Valero Texas Open Benefit for Children Golf Classic, millions of dollars are raised to help support deserving charities.
From the inaugural Texas Open until 1940, the tournament was played at Brackenridge Park Golf Course, with the exception of 1927-1928 when it was played at Willow Springs Golf Course. Upon leaving Brackenridge Park, the Texas Open has been played at Willow Springs Golf Course from 1941–1949, and in1950 and 1951 the Open was played back at Brackenridge Ft. Sam Houston Golf Course respectively. The Texas Open has also been played at the Oak Hills Country Club, Pecan Valley Golf Club and Woodlake Golf Club, before its return to Oak Hills CC from 1977–1994. Beginning in 1995, and through last season, the Valero Texas Open has been held at its most recent home at La Cantera GC, but has been scheduled to take place at a new home, the AT&T; Oaks Course at TPC in San Antonio beginning this 2017 season.
The Valero Texas Open has always been considered an event which is fairly easy to shoot low, has always been played in San Antonio, and has always been called the Texas Open, or something similar, for most of its existence. Many legendary players have won the Texas Open, including Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, and Arnold Palmer, who won the tournament three consecutive years.
