World No. 108 Grayson Murray heads to the Valero Texas Open looking to rebound after a disappointing showing last weekend.

Murray buried himself with an opening-round 74, and he was never able to get back out of the hole at the RBC Heritage. Lucky for him it's a short flight back from Hilton Head to Raleigh, N.C. He has made a name for himself with controversial remarks on Twitter. You have to remember he is 24 years old and still learning to be a pro. Lately, he has let his golf do the talking. Before his misfire at Harbour Town he has back-to-back 14th-place finishes at the Houston Open and Arnold Palmer Invitational, showing his solid all-around game. The youngster has a lot of upside and should be getting attention for his play. Hopefully his agent keeps Murray's Twitter password to himself and doesn't give it back to the player.

Charley Hoffman heads into the Valero Texas Open this weekend with three consecutive cuts made, including a 12th-place showing at the Masters.

Hoffman has been extremely consistent at some very tough courses, posting a 6-under in each of his past three events, and exactly 6-under in four of his past five showings. Consistency has been key so far, as he doesn't do anything particularly great on the golf course, but he also doesn't have any tremendous holes in his game, either. If there is a place he could stand some improvement it is in his Driving Accuracy Percentage (181st on TOUR) and on the putting green. But he seems to make up for it with his even-keel demeanor and heady play. Despite the inaccuracy from the tee box, so-so distance and his subpar putting, he still chimes in 40th in Scoring Average (70.47). If he can just improve ever so slightly in those other areas, top-20 finishes will be the norm.

Julian Suri heads into the Valero Texas Open this week looking to carry over his momentum from his showing last time out in Houston.

Suri has a Top-10 exemption carried from from the Houston Open two weeks ago, when he posted an eighth-place showing for a $182K payday, his biggest yet on the PGA TOUR. Suri was sharp in Houston, posting an opening-round 66, and three rounds under 70 to finish at 13-under 275. This will be just his seventh TOUR start, and the non-member could be a nice DFS sleeper that the casual player overlooks due to unfamiliarity.

PGA TOUR rookie Keith Mitchell is making a big splash and he looks to keep it going at the Valero Texas Open this weekend.

Mitchell rolls in with three straight cuts made, including a runner-up finish at the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship, and perhaps more impressively, a sixth-place showing at the Houston Open. The rookie has rolled up over $700K in earnings so far, and his big blasts off the tee are his calling card. He ranks 11th on tour in Driving Distance (309.4), helping him rack up plenty of birdies and eagles along the way. Unlike some of the other big bombers on tour, he isn't a one-trick pony. Mitchell also possesses a pretty solid scrambling game, and he hasn't been a complete disaster on the greens, either. In fact, he has surprising touch for such a power hitter from the tee box. Many might overlook him due to his inexperience, but he's an excellent sleeper at a cut-rate price. His price tag will continue to creep up over the coming weeks, however.

Matt Jones returns to TPC San Antonio this week for his ninth appearance at the Valero Texas Open.

The Aussie is 5-for-6 at this week's course, with four top 35s on his resume. That includes a T13 from last year. He also led after R1 of the 2010 and co-led after R2 that year. More recently, he's picked up a T28 at the Corales and a T52 at the Houston Open. That came on the heels of three straight missed cuts, perhaps he's rounding into form. Given his steady track record at the AT&T Oaks Course, Jones does make for an appealing sleeper in deeper fantasy formats.

World No. 10 Sergio Garcia readies for his third Valero Texas Open and arrives off a missed cut (by 10) at Augusta National GC on 15-over 159, the worst score ever by a defending champion at the Masters.

The Spaniard is the only player in the 156-man field that's in the top 20 in OWGR and is a 14/1 pre-tourney fave outright. This is his third VTO, second at the par-72 TPC San Antonio. He played the first edition in 2010 and finished T45 (73-68-73-73). The transplanted Texan's MC at the Masters ended a run of three straight top-10 finishes, including a T9 at the Match Play in Austin (3-1-0 record), where he won his group as a 7-seed and then lost 3-and-1 to 45-seed Kyle Stanley in the Round of 16. He hasn't won on TOUR since last year's Masters (26 starts ago), but does have two worldwide wins since, most recently at the Singapore Open 13 weeks ago. This is the 25th event of the season and just the 38-year-old's sixth start, third since his daughter was born 35 days ago. Three of his 10 TOUR titles have come in Texas, most recently the 2016 Bryon Nelson.

Former Texas A&M golfer and World No. 937 Cameron Champ makes his Valero Texas Open debut on a sponsor exemption.

The 22-year-old made a big, first impression in his PGA TOUR debut with a T32 at last year's U.S. Open as an amateur, where he was T8 at the midpoint (70-69-73-76). His next amateur start was a missed cut at the 2018 Safeway, made his pro debut at the OHL Classic five weeks later, also a missed cut, and then MC'd the RSM the following week. After the break for the holidays, Champ has played six events on the Web.com Tour, cashing four times with two top 25s, including a T11 in his last start three weeks ago. Overall, this is the California native's sixth TOUR event, fourth pro, and is still looking for his first paycheck on the main circuit.

Three-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 229 Martin Piller readies for the Valero Texas Open and checks in off a T24 at the Houston Open.

The Dallas native and resident is the ultimate boom-or-bust play this week in San Antonio. He's batting .500 on the season with seven missed cut and seven made cuts, three of which are top-25 finishes and two of those top 4s, including a career-best T3 at the CareerBuilder. The Texas A&M alum is 3-for-3 at the VTO with progressively better finishes of T40/2009 (LaCantera GC); T23/2011; and a T4 in 2016 (70-68-71-70). In 62 career events, the 32-year-old, who has a baby due May 3rd, has missed more cuts (38) than he's made (24).
