TUCSON, AZ -

Ricky Barnes’ streak is intact.

The 2003 UA-product started the final round of the Valero Texas Open with a one-shot lead and a chance to win on the PGA Tour for the first time in his career.

Barnes however bogeyed four of the first ten holes and finished the final round at plus-four to fall into a final five-way tie for fourth place.

Certainly not a bad finish, the second Top 10 finish in a row for Barnes, who took home $233,740. He finished tied for 9th last week at the RBC Heritage.

But it was not the win Barnes has been coveting over 222 PGA events since turning pro in 2003.

Charley Hoffman finished as 12-under par to win by one shot over San Antonio-native Patrick Reed.

It’s Hoffman’s fourth career tour victory.
