  • BookMaker.eu With the second major of the season looming, the PGA Tour has some business to take care of. And it’s in Dallas for the ATT Byron Nelson, contested at the Trinity Forest Golf Club.

  • BookMaker.eu The elegant Augusta National Golf Course has been the host of The Masters since it was first played 83 years ago and the PGA Tour invades the southern Georgia town for its first major of the season.

  • BookMaker.eu The PGA Tour stays in the Lone Star state moving to San Antonio for this week’s Valero Texas Open. It’s the final tuneup before The Masters, and while players like to get that work in before a major, the field is lacking top-end talent.

  • BookMaker.eu We won’t see a gifted field like we had at last week’s PLAYERS Championship, but there are plenty of talented golfers ready to tee it up at the Valspar Championship this week.

But with a host of notable performers, someone will tame the track and take home the bounty....
