This has consequently resulted in the suspension of numerous rounds in various tournaments. Therefore, it naturally raises the question, How will the Valero Texas Open fare?

Interestingly, the golf world is eagerly awaiting the start of the 15th event on the 2024 calendar of the men’s circuit. And, naturally, one can’t help but wonder what TPC San Antonio has in store for us on Thursday, when the first round will kick off!

Fortunately, if the predicted weather conditions persist, then the first round of play will go on to end without any worries. However, if the Tour’s unpredictable conditions persist, a few golfers might have to complete their first round on Friday, a scenario reminiscent of the second round of the Valspar Championship.

It appears the golfing community can rest easy for the day, as they will be able to watch the first round’s play go on without a hitch. Meanwhile, the excitement will only increase as the final stop of the PGA Tour in Texas sees more golfers teeing it up at San Antonio to rake in a cut of the $9.2 million prize purse.

The tournament will kick off with a total of 156 players, unlike the usual number of 144 golfers. Thus, there will be more action on the greens, which may further lead to more athletes being forced to resume their play the next day if unforeseen, unfavorable weather conditions arise.

The recently ended Valspar Championship also saw a similar field of golfers teeing it up at the Copperhead Course. Such a decision was taken to increase the playing time for as many fully exempt TOUR members as possible, including those from the KFT, DP World Tour, and Q-School.
