The contenders: Can any of them do it?

Can anyone catch Brendan Steele? He still leads by one but has plenty of company. Here’s a closer look at some of his contenders:

Cameron Tringale

As a rookie in 2010, Tringale only made five of 22 cuts on TOUR. So far this season, he has made eight of 11 cuts.

Tringale was tied for the first-round lead at the 2010 Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open -- his only lead on TOUR after any round.

Tringale made the clinching putt to help the U.S. win the 2009 Walker Cup.

Kevin Chappell

Chappell is playing in his 16 th event on TOUR, making the cut in seven of those starts.

Chappell won the 2008 NCAA Championship, leading his UCLA Bruins to the team title along the way. Chappell was the only player in the field to shoot under-par (2 under).

Brandt Snedeker

Coming into this week, Snedeker had only made four of nine cuts, but he has finished inside the top 25 each of the four and in the top 10 three times.

This is also Snedeker’s first career start at the Valero Texas Open.
