The PGA Tour is back in Texas this week for the Houston Open, played at Golf Club of Houston in Humble, Texas, home to to event since 2006. The tournament serves as one final tune-up prior to the season’s first major, and the winner earns the last spot in the Masters field, provided he isn’t in already.

The 2018 field is a strong one, featuring names like Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson, Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler. But all eyes remain on Jordan Spieth, whose putting struggles were on display once again last week during his early exit at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. As he’s proved in the past, sooner or later it should turn in Spieth’s favor, especially considering he ranks inside the top 30 in every major strokes-gained category except putting, where he ranks a lowly 172nd. Perhaps he can flip the script in his home state this week at an event where he finished runner-up in his breakout 2015 season.
