The final tournament before the seasons first major is upon us as an admittedly weak field tees it up at the Valero Texas Open on April 4th.
This is, however, the last chance for players to figure out their lost game (Jordan Spieth anyone?), or sharpen up with their sights set on adding a green jacket to their closet next weekend at the Masters.

Affectionately known as Jonny Vegas, the big fella from Venezuela has been sniffing the top of PGA Tour leaderboards for the better part of two months, most notably a tie for third at the Players Championship.

At +4000 this week, Vegas presents tremendous value for a golfer that has been playing very well of late – first round leader at Honda Classic.
He also has been striking the ball brilliantly, ranking 10th in strokes-gained off the tee this season, which bodes well with TPC San Antonio being demanding off the tee.

Jhonattan Vegas’ Last Six Tournament Results
|Corales Puntacana Championship||T-26th|
|The Players Championship||T-3rd|
|Arnold Palmer Invitational||T-23rd|
|The Honda Classic||T-16th|
|Waste Management Phoenix Open||T-10th|
Vegas currently ranks a very respectable 54th on the FedEx Cup points list, so jumping on him this week competing against a suspect field is the prudent play.
