PGA Tour and Valero extend Texas Open partnership

October 5, 2017

The PGA TOUR and Valero Energy Corporation have announced a 10-year extension of Valero’s sponsorship of the Valero Texas Open in San Antonio.

The new deal, which will commence in 2019 and run through 2028, positions the Valero Texas Open as part of the spring sequence of events that will precede the Masters Tournament.

The 2022 Valero Texas Open will mark the 100th anniversary of the event’s inception. It was first held in 1922, making it the third-oldest PGA TOUR co-sponsored tournament, trailing only the BMW Championship (1899) and RBC Canadian Open (1904). The Valero Texas Open also is the oldest TOUR event to be held in the same city since inception.

PGA TOUR Commissioner, Jay Monahan, said: “Not only is the Valero Texas Open one of the oldest and most storied tournaments on the PGA TOUR, but since Valero became title sponsor in 2002, the tournament consistently has been one of the leaders in charitable giving.

“Thanks to Valero and the Valero Energy Foundation, this tournament continues to make a tremendous impact through philanthropic efforts that primarily focus on helping children. We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Valero and its wonderful legacy of giving back.”

Joe Gorder, the Chairman, President and CEO of Valero Energy Corporation, added: “Valero is excited to renew its partnership with the PGA TOUR through the next decade while securing a desired spot among the events leading up to the Masters Tournament.

“The tournament has provided a wonderful platform to rally San Antonio, and Texas as a whole, around a common goal of giving back. We look forward to growing that effort in the years ahead with the continued support of our community.”
