Preview: Shell Houston Open

When: March 26-April 1, 2012

Where: Redstone Golf Club, Humble, Texas. This 900 acre golf club was designed by Jim Hardy and Peter Jacobson and has hosted the tournament since it opened in 2003.

Par: 36

Yardage: 7457

Field: 144 players

Purse: $6 million

Defending Champ:  Phil Mickleson

Other notable players: Keegan Bradley, Rickie Fowler, Davis Love III,  Graeme McDowell, Darren Clarke, Hunter Mahan

Random fact: Lucas Glover and Brandt Jobe scored hole-in-ones on the 7th in 2010 and 2011, respectively.

Our picks:  It’s anyone’s game right now, but Hunter Mahan is coming off a spectacular win (and a takedown of #1 Rory McIlroy) and his game is the best it’s ever been. Tiger’s win will be a huge motivator for Lefty, adding fuel to his game, which is already on fire.
