The 2022-2023 PGA TOUR season heads to Houston, Texas with the Cadence Bank Houston Open starting this Thursday.
The TOUR is coming off of the World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba where Russell Henley won by a commanding four strokes at -23 over Brian Harman. Henley, a Houston Open champion in 2017, will be in the field of 132 players this week.
Memorial Park Golf Course hosts this tournament for the third straight year. Previously the Houston Open had been hosted by other tournaments in the area such as Golf Club of Houston and Redstone Golf Club.
World No. 2 Scottie Scheffler rallied to shoot a 62 on Sunday at Mayakoba and will be in the field this week in Houston as he hopes to regain the top spot in the Official World Golf Rankings. The Texan finished in a tie for second here last season two strokes behind 2021 winner Jason Kokrak. He is joined in the field by a handful of other marquee players such as Henley, Tony Finau, Hideki Matsuyama and Sam Burns.
Memorial Park Golf Course measures 7,412 yards as a par 70 with Bermudagrass greens with three par fives and five par threes. The TOUR previously played the Houston Open just before the Masters, but the schedule change pushed this event to the Fall Swing. The course features some of the thicker rough among the courses featured in the fall while some tight runoff areas around the greens are also a key defense.
Jason Kokrak picked up his third career PGA TOUR victory in 2021 here at Memorial Park Golf Course. He shot a five-under 65 in the final round to beat Scheffler and Kevin Tway by two strokes at 10-under par. Kokrak's stellar iron play led him to victory as he finished the week ranked second in the field in Strokes Gained: Approach.
