SAN ANTONIO — Rory McIlroy’s last-minute, last-ditch effort to right his game in time for the Masters next week has taken a trip to a usually out-of-the-way spot on the PGA Tour. McIlroy and three other highly-ranked players in the Official World Golf Rankings start play in the Valero Texas Open on Thursday at TPC San Antonio.


“It obviously was a last-minute decision to come and play here in San Antonio,” McIlroy said after his pro-am round Wednesday was washed out by rainstorms on his 13th hole. “But from what I see I like it. It should be a good week, a week where I can try to get my game sharp going to Augusta.”


Big-name players don’t often seek the Greg Norman-designed Oaks Course at TPC to sharpen their games.


Last year only two members of golf’s top 50 (no one in the top 15) played on a course that ended with the highest overall scoring average on tour except the PGA Championship at Kiawah Island’s Ocean Course.
