      Sleeper Picks: Valero Texas Open

    Scott Langley ... Third appearance for the PGA TOUR sophomore who made his debut on a sponsor exemption in 2012 and tied for 50th. Last year, he finished 71st of 73 that completed 72 holes. While neither result drew headlines, the experience was invaluable. The lefty took last week off following a career-tying best solo third at the Valspar Championship. That piggybacked a T19 in Puerto Rico. Currently ninth in scrambling and T30 in bogey avoidance.

    Kevin Chappell ... If he wears a label on the PGA TOUR, it's one of a guy that flashes his best on hard tracks. Certainly, TPC San Antonio qualifies. Co-runner-up here in 2011; added a T15 last year. Sneaking up leaderboards of late, posting two of this season's three top 25s in his last three starts. A T14 at Bay Hill is his best finish in nearly 10 months.

    Martin Flores ... Already in his fourth season with a PGA TOUR card, the 32-year-old Texan has a handle on TPC San Antonio, surviving all three of his cuts, including a T10 last year. For the week, he finished fifth in strokes gained-putting, first in one-putt percentage, fourth in scrambling and T2 in par-5 scoring. Also tied for 24th in 2012. Opened this month with a T12 at the Honda and a T19 in Puerto Rico.

    Robert Streb ... Busting at the seams for when fields open to 156 regularly in coming weeks. Despite conditional status, he's 5-for-5 with two top 20s and sits 136th in FedExCup points. After a T14 in Puerto Rico, he cracked the 144-man field at TPC San Antonio via the open qualifier where he medaled with a bogey-free 64. Ranks 41st in adjusted scoring, second in scrambling and T7 in par-4 scoring.

    Charlie Wi ... TPC San Antonio is an unlikely track for any touring pro to find his game, but he may possess enough moxie to disprove the theory. Arrives riding a 2-for-6 skid with no top 45s, but posted a T17 here in 2010 and a T4 in 2012. While most of his stats are uninspiring, despite sitting 127th in FedExCup points, he's T19 in scrambling, 20th in one-putt percentage and T39 in par-3 scoring.
