Michael Set to Play Thursday at the Valero Texas Open

Even the logos are bigger in Texas
by Randy Roberts

Michael is set to play Thursday at the Valero Texas Open which is being held on the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio.  He has a 9:00 am tee time and will be grouped with fellow PGA rookies Kevin Chappell and Joseph Bramlett.  Many of the big name players are taking the week off which will leave the $6.2 million purse to be split amongst the lessor know players.

Michael will be joined not only by his wife Rachel, but his parents Mike and Beth, along with a family that hosted him in Austin, TX while he was playing on the Hooters Tour.  Michael's aunt Pat was at the tournament in Austin and said that this particular family was incredibly gracious and had Michael's parents and extended family over for a barbecue.  He played well that week in Austin so let's hope some of that Texas mojo returns this year as well.
