Front9Back9′s Golf Picks & Predictions: Valero Texas Open

The PGA Tour moves to my hometown this week and the TPC San Antonio will be the home of the Valero Texas Open.  We have five players who finished in the top 10 at The Masters and another two that finished in the top 20.  For my picks this week I am going to play off the momentum of Augusta.

Geoff Ogilvy-  Finished in a T-4 at The Masters and has been playing pretty good leading up to last week.  I am backing up Ogilvy with Charley Hoffman.

Bo Van Pelt and Angel Cabrera-  This is Cabrera’s first appearance in San Antonio and I think he will become a big hit with the people of San Antonio.  Bo Van Pelt finished strong last week at Augusta and I hope he can continue his good play.  Steve Elkington and J.J. Henry will back up my “B” team in the tournament.

Adam Scott-  Adam is the best player in the field this week and is the heavy favorite to repeat.  I don’t understand how Adam is a “C” player in Yahoo Fantasy Golf, but I have to play what they give me.  My backup is another one of my favorites so they forced me to play Scott first.  Ryan Palmer will be waiting in the on-deck circle in case Adam is too off his game this week.

I will be out at the tournament this weekend so stay tuned for some pictures.

Yo! I'm Ryan. Thanks for checking out Front9Back9 Golf Blog! I live in San Antonio, TX with my wife and little baby boy. Everyday when my wife is not looking, I check to see if my son is strong enough yet to grip a golf club. I swear we are getting closer each day! As for my golf game, it's just there. All I try to do is hit it straight and limit my bogeys. One day we will get there.
