Following the conclusion of the Texas Children's Houston Open, the PGA Tour players will next tee off at the Valero Texas Open. The tournament is slated to start with its inaugural round on Thursday, April 4, and will have its finale on Sunday, April 7. With a purse of $9.2 million, it's a regular PGA Tour event featuring a full-size field with a cut line after 36 holes.

Some of the top-ranked players in the world will tee off this week, including Rory McIlroy and Hideki Matsuyama. However, Corey Conners has topped the power ranking.

The Canadian golfer has played in eight tournaments in the 2024 season without missing any cut. He last played at The Players Championship and finished in a tie for 13th place.

Conners started the year at the Sony Open in Hawaii, finishing in a tie for 57th place. He then competed at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, finishing in T31.

Although he has not had any top-10 finish this season so far, his consistently decent performances have impressed fans. He is picking up the pace slowly, which is evident in his performance at The Players, where he finished T13, his best finish of the season.

Hideki Matsuyama is second in the power rankings, followed by Matt Fitzpatrick. The Japanese golfer has played in eight tournaments this season and emerged victorious at The Genesis Invitational. He has recorded two top-10 finishes and settled in the T6 position at The Players.

Rory McIlroy, the top-ranked golfer playing this week, settles in 11th place in the power ranking. The Northern Irish golfer has also last played at The Players, where he finished in a tie for 19th place.
