|Two Top-30 World Golf Ranked Players Commit|
On Sunday, Andrew Landry, our 2018 champion, claimed his second career PGA TOUR victory at The American Express in Palm Springs, CA. Landry is one of eight tournament champions in the past decade who are currently committed to play this year, joining Corey Conners, Kevin Chappell, Charley Hoffman, Jimmy Walker, Martin Laird, Brendan Steele, and Zach Johnson.|
The tournament has also received official commitments from Abraham Ancer and Lee Westwood.
Abraham Ancer, a San Antonio resident, was runner-up to Landry this past Sunday and is presently World No. 30. In December, Ancer became the first PGA TOUR player from Mexico to participate in The Presidents Cup, finishing the week with a 3-1-1 record for the International Team.
World No. 29 Lee Westwood also won on Sunday, capturing the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on the European Tour. It was Westwood’s 25th career victory on that circuit. He will be playing the Valero Texas Open for the first time since the event moved to TPC San Antonio in 2010.
