Golf Rankings for Valero Texas Open
Marc Leishman [Yahoo Class A] - World Ranking: #69
Leishman has made seven of eight cuts this season and has finished 21st or better on three occasions. The Australian finished T30 in his first career start at TPC San Antonio, but missed the cut last year.
Brendon de Jonge [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #74
After earning three top-30 finishes in the month of January (including a pair of top-12s), de Jonge’s performance slid until a T29 last week. The South African finished T23 at TPC San Antonio last year, his first career start at the site.
Kevin Streelman [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #47
When Streelman makes the cut, he is capable of a good finish. In 10 starts he’s only made five cuts, but has managed two top-10s and three finishes of 17th or better. Streelman finished T15 at TPC San Antonio last year, but clearly carries a lot of risk.
After starting the season with four straight missed cuts, Jobe has made four of his last five with one top-10 and two finishes inside the top-20. Jobe finished T15 in his only career start at TPC San Antonio.
Campbell ranks 16th in total driving and is coming off a season-high T24 last week. He’s finished T59 and T34 at TPC San Antonio in two career starts.
Jordan Spieth [Yahoo Class B] - World Ranking: #9
The 19 year old Spieth (currently a freshman at Texas) won the Amateur championship in 2009 and 2011. This will be his second sponsor exemption of the season, missing the cut at Riviera. Spieth was a contender in the final round of the last two HP Byron Nelson Championships and could go toe to toe with the pros yet again.
