Phil Mickelson Set To Play In Valero Texas Open

Organizers of the Valero Texas Open have announced a commitment from one of golf’s greatest players, Phil Mickelson, for the event scheduled for April 1-4 in San Antonio.

The tournament will be the final PGA TOUR stop prior to the year’s first major championship, the Masters Tournament in Augusta, GA.

Mickelson, the World Golf Hall of Fame member and winner of 44 career PGA TOUR titles, will be competing in the Valero Texas Open for the first time since playing three years in a row, 2014-2016. His best finish came in 2015 when he tied for 30th. Mickelson, a five-time major championship winner, won the Masters Tournament in 2004, 2006 and 2010. He won the PGA Championship in 2005 and The Open Championship in 2013.

“We are delighted to welcome Phil back to the Valero Texas Open in a couple of weeks,” said Larson Segerdahl, Executive Director of the Valero Texas Open. “He certainly elevates the level of excitement at every tournament he competes in and I’m sure it will be no different this year at TPC San Antonio.”

In addition, Davis Love III, another World Golf Hall of Fame member, two-time United States Ryder Cup captain and 1997 PGA Championship winner is also scheduled to compete. He has won 21 times on the PGA TOUR. He and Mickelson have a combined 55 TOUR career titles.

Other major champions committing today are Lucas Glover, who won the 2009 U.S. Open and KeeganBradley, winner of the 2011 PGA Championship.

These four add to an already impressive group of major champions who are part of the 144-player field. This collection of major champions has accumulated a total of 19 titles across the Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, U.S. Open and The Open Championship. The others include Vijay Singh, Charl Schwartzel, Jim Furyk,Danny Willett, Henrik Stenson, Jason Dufner, Padraig Harrington and Jimmy Walker.

With the primary focus on the health and well-being of the community and all involved with the tournament, the spectator and sponsor experience at the event has been reimagined to ensure all State, local and PGA TOUR safety protocols are observed. Upgraded spectator hospitality experiences will be open-air, provide ample space for social distancing, and allow for intimate viewing while taking advantage of miles of front row seats throughout the golf course, along the rope line.
