Titleist: The No. 1 Ball at the Valero Texas Open
And as players look to take on the Par-72, 7,435 yard Oaks Course, Titleist is the overwhelming golf ball of choice with 116 players teeing up a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball. That’s more than seven times the nearest competitor with 15 and more than all competitors combined.
Titleist is also the top choice of players in the hybrids (30) and irons (47) categories. Vokey Design Wedges topped the approach, sand and lob wedge (215) category. Scotty Cameron putters were the top choice in the putter (65) category.
- Dating to 1922, the Valero Texas Open is the third-oldest non-major on the PGA TOUR calendar behind only the BMW Championship (1899) and RBC Canadian Open (1904). It’s also the longest-running event on the PGA TOUR to be held in the same city.
- This will be the eighth consecutive year that TPC San Antonio plays host to the Valero Texas Open. The event debuted at this location in 2010 where Titleist Brand Ambassador Adam Scott claimed top honors.
- Titleist Brand Ambassador Charley Hoffman will be looking to defend his title this week at TPC San Antonio where he has never missed a cut and has finished in the top-15 a total of nine times.
- 2015 Valero Texas Open champion, reigning PGA Championship winner and nearby Boerne resident Titleist Brand Ambassador Jimmy Walker will be making his 12th start in the 2017 Valero Texas Open.
