Valero Texas Open
Every Sunday, the LoopGolf team writes a newsletter for our community highlighting all the action around golf, betting and culture.
A tradition like any other. Those words mean only one thing, it’s officially Masters week folks! The first major of the year. And what comes after the Masters? The start of the 2023 golf season 🥳.
The drama is already heating up. Is Tiger officially in the field? How awkward is the locker room going to be with 18 LIV players in the field this week? Playing some of the best golf of his career, can Rory FINALLY complete the career grand slam with a win next weekend?
Now all we need to do is hope that Scottie Scheffler doesn’t run away with it like he did last year and did AGAIN this year at The Players. The 26-year old from Texas is 🥵, currently the #1 player in the world with six wins under his belt dating back to the 2022 WM Phoenix Open.
Episode 3 of The Play For Tour is out now! In this episode, we challenged two rising stars in the NBA, Kevin Huerter & Keegan Murray from the Sacramento Kings to a 9-hole money match at Dark Horse Country Club. Watch the full episode below.

It's no surprise Corey Connors is the favorite going into Sunday even though he is 1-back of the lead, this guy was firing at pins all day. Not sure how this one doesn't go in...
What a shot 🔥
This ball did everything but go in for @coreconn.

It's good to see our guy Harry Higgs playing well early in the season. Higgs shot even par on moving day and sits 5 back of the lead at T-6. Could this be Higgs' break-out season? Here he is throwing a dart 🎯
Feeling it on Moving Day 👀
@harryhiggs1991 moves to T2 after the birdie @valerotxopen.

Corey Conners finds himself in familiar territory heading into the final round of the Valero Texas Open. Back in 2019, Conners won this tournament to secure his first win on TOUR. Since then he’s been playing some great golf, now 40th in the world, Corey has 13 top-10’s since winning in 2019, but has yet to get win #2.
With such fond memories at TPC San Antonio and having been so close 13 times over the past three years, can this Canadian break through right before the Masters and win for the 2nd time in his career?

There has long been a huge missed opportunity to connect traditional golf attire and etiquette with the modern day style and fashion for women - until today. Enter Dayclub who is on a mission to disrupt the women's golf apparel game.
