One thing about the PGA Tour that bothers me is the fact that the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio can never get any of the big names on the Tour in its field even though it is one of the biggest charity fundraisers the tour has.
It would be nice to see some of the bigger names attend to at least pay a little gratitude to all the people who work so hard to make this tournament so successful.
Of course many times it has had to compete with the Ryder Cup and/or the Presidents Cup. But this year is not one of those years and yet there are not a lot of easily recognizable names in the field.
But even without the big names, the tournament is still a golden opportunity for the golf fan to go out and watch some of the best in the game performance for a relatively inexpensive price tag.
While walking the LaCantera Resort Course could be task, there are a number of great vantage points in which to watch the tournament without running yourself to death trying to keep up with a certain group.
Hole 4 is a par 3 and is an ample opportunity to watch three other holes at the same time. You can also find a spot just off the 6th tee to watch groups tee off as well as groups finish at the 9th.
These are just a couple of the spots for enjoyable viewing, especially for anyone who has never taken in a PGA Tour event.
So for those who plan to take a trip to San Antonio this weekend to enjoy some of the Texas Open action, I say way to go because I wish time would allow me the opportunity to take in a day or two of the action again. Maybe next year!
