The 2021 PGA TOUR fall swing rolls on in Houston this week for the Hewlett Packard Enterprise Houston Open.

Sam Burns enters as the favorite at DraftKings. He has become a legitimate contender on TOUR this year, winning twice (the Valspar in May and Sanderson Farms in October) and losing a playoff at the WGC-FedEx St. Jude in August. He’s up to 19th in the world golf rankings, which trails only Brooks Koepka among players in this field.

While Viktor Hovland got the win at Mayakoba again, a few players who are heading to Houston put up good results at the World Wide Technology Championship.

The hottest name in the field is no doubt Matthew Wolff, the 22-year-old whose worst result in three fall starts is a tie for 17th at the Sanderson. His other two results saw him finish second at the Shriners and then finish fifth last week at Mayakoba.

Just above Wolff on the leaderboard at Playa del Carmen was Scottie Scheffler, whose form this fall was less convincing. Also with a good showing entering this week is reigning Houston Open champion Carlos Ortiz, who finished second at Mayakoba.

Patrick Reed will be in action in Houston, as the course is driving distance from his home north of the city. Reed is playing his third week in a row, having finished in a tie for second at the Bermuda Championship and a tie for 56th at Mayakoba.

Memorial Park was recently renovated and became the host of the Houston Open last year. It’s a rare municipal courses on the TOUR’s annual schedule. It’s a par 72 at just shy of 7,300 yards, presenting a bit more length than players will have seen in Bermuda or Mexico.

When looking at tournament history, it is important to note that 2020 was the first time this tournament was held back at Memorial Park.
