Valero Texas Open - R4

Corey Conners earns Masters spot

April 04-07
TPC San Antonio, Oaks Course
$7,500,000
Round 1, Round 2, Round 3


Corey Conners has won the Valero Texas Open less than a week after qualifying, the first golfer to do so on the PGA Tour in nine years.

”No more Monday qualifying,” Conners said. ”That’s the best deal from this. Amazing. It’s a dream come true. It won’t be as stressful on Mondays.”

Conners shot a 6-under 66 and played three birdies in his final five holes. He finished 20-under, two ahead of Charley Hoffman.

He also earned the final slot in the Masters.

”My wife got an email this morning letting her know we could check in for our flight back home,” Conners said. ”I told her, ‘Aw, don’t check in yet. Maybe we can make other plans.’ Big change of plans. It was going to be an off week. I’m glad it won’t be.”


Si Woo Kim, who led the opening three rounds dropped to a share of fourth place with Brian Stuard at 15-under after shooting a72.

Si Woo Kim, The Players Championship winner in 2017, led the opening three rounds but dropped to a tie for fourth with Brian Stuard (15-under) after an even-par 72.
