Valero Texas Open
TPC San Antonio – AT&T Oaks, San Antonio, TX
Kevin Chappell won his first PGA Tour event on his 180th try at San Antonio with a putt of a little over 8 feet. Finishing on -12 he managed to hold off BROOKS KOEPKA who had already posted a score of -11.
It could have been so different for Chappell had he not bogeyed the last hole six years ago, ironically enough at the Valero Texas Open, to finish in sole second place to Brendan Steele. But the long-awaited win finally came when he held his nerve this time to hole out and lift the trophy.

The Shenzhen International needed a playoff before Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger finally overcame the tremendous fight back from Englands Tommy Fleetwood.
Starting the final round Fleetwood was 8 shots of the lead and fired home a magnificent -9 to match Wiesberger’s -16. But it wasn’t to be Fleetwood’s day, playing the 18th as the first extra hole Bernd Wiesberger birdied out to hold of Fleetwood who could only manage a par.
This was Wiesberger’s first win of the season on the European Tour and 4th overall.
With no official tournament this week the ladies head over to Texas for the Volunteers of America Texas Shootout next week and with holder Jenny Shin hoping to get her season back on track after a slow start.
We could be waiting a long long time for the re-emergence of Tiger Woods as a competitive player after it was disclosed that the 14 time Major winner has had his fourth operation on his troublesome back.
That’s it for this week guys and gals have a great weeks golf and I will be back next week with all the results and any news that crops up
