Texas Open Charity

Say what you want about the lack of quality in Texas Open fields (and I have), but one big thing the tournament has going for it is its ability, led by title sponsor Valero, to raise beaucoup dinero. According to the San Antonio Business Journal, this year's charitable total is a record $5 million raised.

It's this fund-raising ability - and the coming TPC San Antonio courses - that should keep the Texas Open safe if the PGA Tour decides to dump some tournaments and shorten its schedule. See Richard Oliver's article in the San Antonio Express-News for much more on this theme.
