Abraham Ancer does not live too far from San Antonio and practices often at the course. He does not have great course history like he does compared to the Mayakoba Classic, but the courses run similarly and slightly favor his game. 

 

Ancer has tremendously improved his short game from a year ago, and this is what held him back at this event in previous years. It would not hurt to throw some money his way for his current value and his recent improvements. 

 

Jordan Spieth is the returning champion of this event and has appeared comfortable playing here. Last year, he finished with -18 and won by two strokes against Charley Hoffman. 

 

This is a great opportunity for Spieth to have some momentum heading into the Masters. If he can win or even get close to the top five for this event, it will feel like a win heading into the next event. 

 

Most Likely Favorite to Succeed 

 

Rory Mcllroy only has one thing on his mind, which is the Masters. He chose to do something a little different this year compared to other years being a professional, and that is to skip the WGC match play and compete in this event instead. 

 

He might have done well in the match play, but sitting out a week of competition is not something he will try again. If this works to his advantage and he wins the Masters next week, he will look like a genius. With that being said, he is looking to perform well here and fine-tune anything he has left to get ready for the Masters. 

 

Whether he leads after a day or two or hangs around the top spots throughout the event, you will not see him stress at all with a bigger prize in mind. Winning this event would mean something to him, but only if it allows him to fix any issues before the Masters.
