Texas Two-Step

It was a great weekend for Texans on tour as both the PGA and LPGA tournaments went to linksters with Lone Star ties.

At the LPGA Corning Classic, University of Texas ex and current Fort Worth resident Heather Bowie claimed the first win of her career. And on the PGA Tour John Deere Classic, Lubbock native Sean O'Hair got his first victory, too.

The three players in contention down the stretch at the Deere were all Texans of a fashion: O'Hair; Dallas native Hank Kuehne; and Horseshoe Bay resident J.L. Lewis.

I think it's time to update my original rankings of the best Texans on the PGA Tour. Through the Deere, here are the Top 5:

1. Justin Leonard
2. Sean O'Hair
3. Scott Verplank
4. Chad Campbell
5. Bob Estes

I limited my original rankings to native Texans only, so Bart Bryant, J.L. Lewis and Joe Ogilvie, while now Texas residents, don't qualify.
