The perpetual trophy stands atop a three-tiered oak wood base that commemorates past champions of the Valero Texas Open going back to 1922, where the Champion’s trophy, that J.J. Spaun took home, sits on a single-tier oak wood base. The team at Malcolm DeMille is proud to be a part of a historic event by creating this stunning trophy. Congratulations Valero Texas Open for 100 years, and to J.J. Spaun on his win at the Valero Texas Open!
