SAN ANTONIO, TX — 2022 U.S. Open champion Matt Fitzpatrick and 2013 Masters Tournament winner Adam Scott are scheduled to compete in the 102nd anniversary of the Valero Texas Open, tournament officials announced today.

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

Fitzpatrick, also winner of the 2023 RBC Heritage and a member of last year’s victorious European Ryder Cup team, will be making his first start at the Valero Texas Open. The Englishman is one of six players currently among the top 15 in the world committed—No. 2 Rory McIlroy, No. 8 Max Homa, No. 9 Fitzpatrick, No. 10 Brian Harman, No. 11 Ludvig Åberg, No. 14 Collin Morikawa. Additionally, eleven of the top 40 are scheduled to play.

Scott, winner of 14 PGA TOUR and 14 International titles, won the 2010 Valero Texas Open in its first year at TPC San Antonio. His return will be the first since 2018 and his fourth overall start in the Texas tournament. The Australian is ranked 48th in the world.

With the addition of Fitzpatrick and Scott, there are now eight major championship winners in the Valero Texas Open field that also include: Stewart Cink, Lucas Glover, Brian Harman, Rory McIlroy, Colin Morikawa, and Jimmy Walker.

Tournament officials also announced a commitment from Denmark’s Thorbjørn Olesen who will be making his first start at the Valero Texas Open. Olesen has eight international victories and was on the European Ryder Cup team in 2018.

With the addition of Fitzpatrick, Scott, and Olesen there are now 16 current players competing in the Valero Texas Open who are also Masters Tournament Invitees.

Corey Conners, a two-time winner of the Valero Texas Open, is set to defend his title against what is becoming one of the strongest fields in recent tournament history.
