The last swing season on the PGA Tour draws to a close as players head to Memorial Park Golf Course for the Houston Open 2022 this week. It is one of only two remaining events on the fall calendar. The participants will try to position themselves well in the FedEx Cup standings ahead of a playoff madness in August.

This summer, only 70 players will have access to the first playoff tournament, so this part of the game schedule is even more important than usual. Players like Seamus Power, Keegan Bradley, Tom Kim, Max Homa and last week’s Mayakob winner Russell Henley have taken advantage of the opportunities given to them so far.

World No. 2 Scotty Scheffler will be aiming for the same as with T3 at the World Tech Championship. A player who thrived in the fall throughout his young career, Scheffler has been joined at this Houston Open field by Sam Burns, Hideki Matsuyama, Tony Finau and many others looking to stamp their 2022 as a whole.

2022 Houston Open Field Odds

  • Scotty Sheffler (5-1): He nearly failed a solo second place finish at Mayakoba, which would once again give him the world No. 1 title. Finishing his week in Mexico as a 9-yo under 62, Scheffler relocated his trusty blade stick and put it to good use. While the stick has been a sore spot in recent months, reuniting with his loyal player in his final two rounds could be a sign that things are ahead. When he posts positive hits from turning in numbers, the Texan’s name appears on the front page of the leaderboard. Given that he finished second in this tournament last year, it’s likely that Scheffler will find himself in a similar position again.
  • Sam Burns (14-1): A three-time winner of the season back, including one in Texas, Burns arrives in Houston after a T7 finish in his last start at the CJ Cup in South Carolina. Sevens must be wild as the LSU product has shown T7 results in its last two times at Memorial Park. Relying more and more on his stick, Burns’ approach to the start of the summer has slowed down a bit and might be worth keeping an eye on this week.
  • Tony Finau (14-1)
  • Aaron Wise (18–1): The former PGA Tour Rookie of the Year hasn’t won in over four years and is looking to follow in the footsteps of Henley, Bradley and Mackenzie Hughes by successfully breaking the drought. With two top 15 finishes in three starts of the season, Memorial Park could be just the place for him to break through. On the previous two trips, Wise docked at the T11 and T26 finishes.
  • Hideki Matsuyama (20-1): The Japanese man remains one of the toughest players on the PGA Tour. One week he recovers from a nagging injury, and the next he wins a golf tournament. Matsuyama arrives in average form with three top 40 finishes, none of which made the top 20. The good news is that Matsuyama finished second here behind Carlos Ortiz in 2021 and should do well on a course where creativity on the green and a touch on surfaces for fast play are essential.
  • Russell Henley (22-1)
  • Taylor Montgomery (22-1): With only five starts in his career on the PGA Tour, Montgomery has already made an impression. An initial favorite for Rookie of the Year, the 27-year-old used incredible distance from the tee and a flawless shot to finish in the top 15 five times in a row. His final round average of 65.60 could come in handy on Sunday.
  • Maverick McNeely (22-1): If not Cameron Young, then perhaps McNeely bears the description of the best non-winning player on the PGA Tour. Stanford’s product has been in the top 20 four times in a row, including last week’s T10 at Mayakoba. McNeely relies heavily on his stick but continues to threaten leaders despite leaving a lot to be desired in the hitting category.
  • Jason Day (33-1): Don’t look now, but the former world No. 1 is moving in the right direction. Picking up hits in every measured event this season, the Aussie has achieved T8, T11 and most recently T21 results at Mayakoba. Day finished T7 in his first start at Memorial Park, and given the way he currently hits the golf ball, may give himself a real chance to lift a trophy for the first time since the 2018 Wells Fargo Championship.
  • Denny McCarthy (35-1)
  • Joel Damen (35-1)
