Never before, in the Texas Open's 94-year history, have so many gathered to experience San Antonio's annual PGA TOUR stop. Showcasing the talents of many of the world’s top golfers including Defending Champion Jimmy Walker, Patrick Reed, Billy Horschel, Matt Kuchar, Luke Donald, Zach Johnson, Phil Mickelson to name just a few, as they navigated their way around the challenging AT&T Oaks Course.
At the end of a great week and exciting competition, it was Charley Hoffman who claimed his fourth PGA TOUR victory, hoisted the Valero Texas Open trophy and slipped on the Champion's Boots.
As successful as the Valero Texas Open was “inside the ropes,” the most fulfilling aspect is the event’s impact “outside the ropes.” Last year we were proud to become only the fourth PGA TOUR event to eclipse the $100 Million milestone in cumulative funds raised for charity. Thanks to growing community support, this year’s Valero Texas Open, along with the Valero Benefit for Children, raised a record $10.5 million, bringing the grand total to $115.5 million in charitable giving.

2016 Champion Charley Hoffman
“I pride myself and that's why I play this game is to get in that contention. I have those feelings. I love the way your body feels when you're in contention and just -- I mean how can you -- how can I describe this? Just the way you react and sort of be able to maintain composure. I haven't been able to. It's been tough. To be able to go through that period in the last month and a half and close the door like I did, it's a very good, gratifying feeling.”
