It’s been a great start to the Valero Texas Open for our pre-tournament selection.

Ryan Moore (pictured above) is tied at the top with Zach Johnson after two rounds at 9-under par. Johnson is the slight favorite heading into the weekend at +275, with Moore right behind him at +300.

Moore was our pick among the favorites at +2500, and he’s gained strokes in all areas, so I’m willing to ride him out on Saturday and see where he ends up.

We also have one of our longshot plays, Grayson Murray, just a stroke back. Murray was available at +14000 early in the week, but he’s now third on the odds board behind Johnson and Moore at +700. Andrew Landry is the only other player closer than three shots back of the lead. He’s tied with Murray at 8-under and is +1000 to win the title.
