October 8th 2019, 6:30pm, By: andyrosos

The 2020 PGA Tour is beginning to heat up as many of the top players in the world have returned to action over the last few weeks! We head to Texas this weekend for the annual Houston Open, which will be played at the Golf Club of Houston.

Catch our full betting preview and tips for the weekend’s action below!

Houston Open Betting Tips

It was a fantastic weekend in Las Vegas for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, where Kevin Na was able to pick up his first win of the season. Na beat out a talented field, many of whom will be back in action this week in Houston to compete for the $7,500,000 purse.

The Field

While we saw some of the top line players back in action in Nevada, this week should give some of the lower ranked players and rookies a great chance at picking up a title and the all-important Fed Ex Cup points.

None of the top 10 ranked players in the world will be competing in Houston this weekend, with the field set to be headlined by past major winners in the likes of Henrik Stenson, Jimmy Walker and Keegan Bradley.

Current Fed Ex Cup leader Sebastian Munoz will suit up for his fourth straight tournament as he looks to continue a solid start to the season which includes a win at the Sanderson Farms Championship and a T7 at the Military Tribute.

The Course

The Golf Club of Houston is a 7,441 yard, Par 72 which will play host to the Houston Open for the 13th time this season. This will be the final time that the Golf Club of Houston will host the event before it relocated to the Memorial Park Golf Course next year.

The Golf Club of Houston opened in 2003 and was designed by Jim Hardy and Peter Jacobson. Over the past Houston Open events held at the course, there has been a strong focus on hitting greens in regulation and scrambling, as the course demands strong approach play due to it’s tricky rough and collection areas around the greens.

The course also regularly ranks has one of the longest on tour, so strong long iron players will definitely be a focus this week.

Prediction

With long iron players being a key focus, it’s no wonder Swedish veteran Henrik Stenson has had some success in Houston in the past. The 43-year-old has ranked first in shots gained on approach in the last two seasons in a row on the PGA Tour and is consistently among the top long iron players, ranking in the top 15 in approaches from 225-250 yards over the last two seasons.

In seven trips to the Houston Open, Stenson has racked up three top 10 finishes and has only missed the cut on one occasion. Stenson will be making his PGA Tour season debut in Houston but has been solid in the European Tour over the last month, finishing T3 in the Scandinavian Invitation and T17 at the BMW PGA Championship.
