The Houston Open marks the 21st event of the new PGA Tour’s wrap around season schedule. The Houston Open winner receives “if not previously eligible” invitation into the Masters next week. Last year’s Shell Houston Open winner D.A. Points will head a strong field into Texas this week. Rory McIlroy will make only his fifth start of the new season and is looking to get his game in order for next week’s first major. Phil Mickelson, the 2011 Houston Open champion will also be in the field and is looking to see if his back is better from his withdraw just last week.
Other big name golfers in this week’s event are Ernie Els, Steve Stricker, Keegan Bradley, Henrik Stenson, Jimmy Walker, Dustin Johnson, and Sergio Garcia. We will have to all be glued to our television sets to see who will hold the beautiful crystal trophy this year.
