Valero Texas Open History & Past Winners
The PGA Tour warms up for it’s annual trip to Augusta National with one of it’s longest standing tournaments. Let’s take a look at the Valero Texas Open History and Past Winners of this original PGA event.
The first Valero Texas Open took place way back in 1922 making it the 3rd oldest official PGA Tour event. If the U.S. Open and PGA Championship, managed by the USGA and PGA of America are included, it becomes the 5th oldest pro tournament in America. Amazingly, the Valero has been held in the same city since it’s inception and it’s the only professional tournament that can make that claim.
