The 2013 Valero Texas Open begins on Thursday, and will be the last tune-up leading to the Masters. Not all of the biggest names will be in action, given how close it actually is to the Masters, but there are still some big names, including favorite Rory McIlroy. There's going to be $6.2 million up for grabs in the tournament, with the winner's share at just over $1.1 million.
It all begins on Thursday and will wrap up on Sunday. The Golf Channel will begin coverage on Thursday at 3 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, NBC will pick up afternoon-to-evening coverage with the Golf Channel running from 1-3 p.m. ET.
But if you're not going to be around your TV, there's still ways to watch the event. You can subscribe to Golf Live Extra on the Golf Channel's website. That will let you watch a live stream of their coverage of events, and it does carry over to the NBC coverage, as well. You can find the link for Golf Live Extra here.
