This week is none other than the Valero Texas open and for the first time in its history it is being played a week before the Masters as it returns for its fourth year at the TPC San Antonio and Marriott San Antonio Hill Country resort and spa. Last years winner Ben Curtis will be looking to retain his title and stun the crowd into silence yet again. Ben Curtis sunk an incredible 23 foot putt for par on the second to last hole and then played two wonderful shots on the final hole to finish with a birdie which lengthened his lead to two shots from his closest contender.
Rory Mcilroy will join Ben Curtis and the rest of the field as a warm up before he takes on the best in the Masters next week. Mcilroy was meant to have his last tournament before the Masters last week at the shell Houston open, however he believes nothing can prepare himself for the Masters better than to keep hitting the ball competitively and gain some momentum going into the major next week at Augusta. His poor start to the 2013 season has shaken his confidence but he is still determined to gain his third major and stop Tiger Woods from gaining his 15th major.
The Masters is the first major of the year and brings all walks of life together to see incredible golf. Adam Scott is confident he will give the rest of the Masters field a run for their money, after managing just a single top five in his first 39 majors, Scott has recorded two runners-up finishes and a further two top 10s in his last eight. Even after losing a four shot lead at the British open at Lytham last year and losing by a shot to Ernie Els, Scott is anticipating an exciting round and has put the Open behind him and is determined to bounce back and shock the golfing world.
