This week: Valero Texas Open, Thursday through Sunday, TPC San Antonio, San Antonio, Texas.

World rankings: Stanley at 102nd, Kelly at 333rd and Gonzales at 450th.

2013 earnings: Stanley has $162,456 (131st on the PGA Tour), Kelly has $32,350 (180th on the PGA Tour) and Gonzales has yet to cash in an event (214th on the PGA Tour).

Last tournament: This week comes the lottery-ticket event – the winner earns a spot at next week’s Masters in Augusta, Ga. (if he has not already qualified). So what are the winning odds of the three locals? Based solely on results this season, not good – the trio collectively has made seven of 22 PGA Tour cuts. And at the Valero Texas Open, these South Sound standouts are 0-for-4 in making the cut at TPC San Antonio. Stanley has missed cuts in back-to-back events, including last week at the Shell Houston Open (1-over-par 145). It is the second time this season that has happened – after occurring just twice all of 2012. … Kelly also missed the cut at the Shell Houston Open (3-over 147) – and ranks 198th in FedEx Cup points (15). … It’s been nearly a month since Gonzales played a PGA Tour tournament, missing the cut at the Puerto Rico Open (1-under 143) on March 10. With five consecutive missed cuts, he is in the middle of the worst slump of his career (missed four cuts in a row in 2011).

Tee times Thursday: Kelly at 5:20 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee; Stanley at 5:50 a.m. PDT off the first tee; and Gonzales at noon PDT off the 10th tee.
