EVENT: Valero Texas Open (Thurs.-Sun.)

WHY WE’LL WATCH: To see how the 11 Masters entrants will play – and whether Rickie Fowler can earn a spot to Augusta National (by winning).

COURSE INFO: The Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio was designed by Greg Norman and is one of the tour’s longer courses at 7,435 yards. The main challenge here is avoiding the abundant oak trees that line the narrow fairways, making accuracy paramount.

FAVES: With just 24 of the world’s top 100 on hand, Tyrrell Hatton (+1200), Fowler (+1800) and Si Woo Kim (+2000) top the board.

BET TO CONSIDER: Ben Martin To Win, +8000. As recommended by Keith Stewart of “Read The Line,” Martin has two top 10s in his last four starts. And he needs to win to play the Masters. No wonder longshots such as J.J. Spaun, Andrew Landry and Steven Bowditch have triumphed since 2014.
