Valero Texas Open
World No. 10 Brian Harman and World No. 11 Ludvig Åberg
Join List of Early Commitments
Night to Honor Our Heroes Presented by Boeing to feature John Daly & Major Ed Pulido

SAN ANTONIO, TX — The field for the 102nd anniversary of the Valero Texas Open received another boost this week with commitments from two of last season’s winners—Brian Harman (The Open Championship) and Ludvig Åberg (RSM Classic).


San Antonio’s historical PGA TOUR event returns this spring to TPC San Antonio’s The Oaks course for the 14th year, April 1-7, a week preceding the Masters Tournament.

With the commitments from World No. 10 Harman and World No. 11 Åberg, there are currently five of the top 15 players on the Official World Golf Ranking scheduled to compete. Tournament officials announced a few weeks ago that World No. 2 Rory McIlroy, No. 8 Max Homa and No. 14 Collin Morikawa, who have combined for 36 PGA TOUR victories, announced their intentions to join the 144-player field.

There are now six major champions in the field—Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover, Harman, McIlroy, Morikawa, and Jimmy Walker.

This will be Harman’s seventh start and first since 2019 in the Valero Texas Open. He was among the top 25 three consecutive times from 2012-2014, with his best finish a T16 in 2014.

Åberg, a Texas Tech University product, was No. 1 on the World Amateur Golf Ranking for 29 weeks and twice the collegiate player of the year, before turning pro in June of last year. Within five months of turning pro, the 24-year-old won on the DP World Tour and PGA TOUR and was a member of the victorious European team at the Ryder Cup.

PGA TOUR players have until Friday, March 29 at 4:00 p.m. Central Time to commit and can withdraw at any time.

Tournament officials also announced today that a Night to Honor Our Heroes presented by Boeing will feature two-time major champion John Daly and Combat Wounded Veteran Major Ed Pulido, U.S. Army (Ret.). The pair have joined forces to make a major impact on the world of philanthropy for America’s children, first responders and our nation’s Veterans.

The Valero Texas Open’s long-standing tradition of celebrating “Military City, USA” continues this year as active military, wounded warriors and corporate supporters gather Friday night of tournament week on April 5 for this annual military appreciation banquet.
