On route to Austin for a first visit ahead of covering this week’s Shell Houston Open we passed by a practice range that on closer inspection gave new meaning to hitting the bull.
Here on the outskirts of Dripping Springs and located some 21 miles south-east of Austin the first practice range where the targets were not just the markers.
At 107-yards there is metal outline of a Texas steer, 171-yards to the bus on the right and six yards further to the left school bus.

Here we were on the Monday after Jimmy Walker captured the Valero Texas Open and happily driving down Texas route 290 on route from Austin to Houston when I was brought to a screeching halt at a red light by a truck load of Australia’s finest.
We had traveled north from San Antonio to visit Austin and the capital of Texas before pointing the rent-a-car east, so I am not sure where this photograph was taken.
All I know is that I could have got out of the car and got down on my knees bowing to ...
It has to be the heaviest trophy I have ever picked up – the Valero Texas Open trophy.
The trophy followed new champion Jimmy Walker into the media center but somehow I ended up getting a photograph with it.
And thankfully I was not asked to hold it up over my head and it weighs a ton!
It was just minutes after Jimmy Walker birdied the last hole to take a five shot lead in the the final round of the Valero Texas Open when San Antonio’s own E 7 band started rocking the TPC San Antonio course.
The band entertained golf patrons in a real Texas setting including cactus and brush.
E 7 band members include:-
Billy Hollywood – Drums, Master Simmons – Bass/Reggae Tune Master, Pauly D – Guitar, Victoria Acosta (Vei) – Lead Vocals, DJ Smokey – Keys/DJ/Rap ...
Spotted this morning in the Valero Texas Open car park – a 350 1967 Chevy Camaro.

The car shared its platform and major components with the Pontiac Firebird, also introduced for 1967.
Four distinct generations of the Camaro were developed before production ended in 2002. The nameplate was revived on a concept car that evolved into the fifth-generation Camaro; ...
It was a fabulous night out to the AT & T Stadium here in San Antonio to watch the San Antonio Spurs tackle the Dallas Mavericks.
However the Mavericks were no match for the Spurs and despite getting to within four points of the 2014 NBL champions the Spurs produced a comfortable 94 to 76 point victory.
Highlights outside of the NBL match was the antics of the Spurs mascot, Whylie E Coyote, a french fry throwing contest (see photograph below), a match your face to the glasses and moustache and ...
Like the line ‘Pack it up and tear it down … They’ll set it up in another town’ from the famed Jackson Browne song ‘Load Out’, so the equipment trucks working the PGA Tour were all packed up and headed from the Valero Texas Open to next week’s Tour stop – the Shell Houston Open.
For the giant state-of-the-art Callaway truck it was a tight squeeze down the pathway along side of the 18th fairway at TPC San Antonio before the truck eventually found its ...
