First played in 1922, the tournament bills itself as the third oldest PGA Tour tournament in the world and the longest to be held in the same city, San Antonio.

Past winners of the tournament have included Tom Watson, Ben Crenshaw, Mark O’Meara, Sam Snead and Byron Nelson. Golf legend Arnold Palmer set the tournament record by winning three successive years between 1960 and 1962. Justin Leonard also won three tournaments in non-consecutive years (2000, 2001 and 2007).

The course also features a careful balance between narrow, tree-lined fairways and wider fairways over more than 7,400 yards. The most difficult hole, statistically, is the par-4 first hole, which runs for 454 yards. Players have earned the most bogeys on this hole.
