Landry claims first title at Valero Texas Open

Landry claims first title at Valero Texas Open

Landry was unquestionably the best ball striker in San Antonio this week, ranking first in SG: Approach, SG: Tee-to-green, and greens in regulation. After the third round, Landry was in a good position as he had a good cushion to take into the last day.

He trailed Andrew Landry by one shot for much of the final round while racking up six birdies over his first 11 holes, but a pair of late miscues meant the former Alabama standout had to settle for a share of second place, two shots behind Landry.

Another short birdie miss from inside four feet on the 14th lost him a second chance to increase his lead, but as Mullinax could only manage a par himself after hitting in to the bunker with his second, the gap remained at one-shot.

Mullinax endured a roller coaster start with four birdies and two bogeys in the first eight holes, but began the back nine with back-to-back birdies to stay on Landry's heels. He went on to tie for second place with Sean O'Hair at 15 under.

Walker ended the week in outright fourth on 14 under and one shot ahead of two-time victor Zach Johnson, who ran up a scrappy six at the last to complete a disappointing 72.

The resulting bogey gave Landry the gift of a two-shot lead heading to the par-five 18th.

"It's fun to compete against the so-called younger generation", Johnson said. "Just try to keep it up and hope to play well for the next weeks".

The two-time victor on the Tour parred the final seven holes to card a four-under 68 for a winning score of 17 under par, and Landry was the only player in the field to break 70 on all four days.

The Tour moves to Avondale, La., next week for the Zurich Classic, a two-player team event, at the TPC Louisiana.
