The PGA Tour returns to the continental United States and the Lone Star state for the 2022 Cadence Bank Houston Open and the penultimate individual tournament before the end of the calendar year. Memorial Park Golf Course has hosted the tournament on and off since the start in 1946 and will play host again this year. That said, it’s time to have a closer look at the upcoming Houston Open tournament so you can bet against the PGA Tour Odds.
Golf Betting Preview for Cadence Bank Houston Open 2022 Tournament
The event began 76 years ago at the River Oak Country Club and has been held at courses around Houston in all but two seasons since. Prior to moving to the fall slate, the tournament was held 11 years in the spring leading up to the Masters.
Tournament play begins on Thursday, November 10th, and ends on Sunday, November 13th. The individual stroke play event will have a 156-man field and a traditional cut following the completion of the first two rounds.
Jason Kokrak picked up his third PGA Tour victory and second win in 2021 last year. Kokrak finished the four days with a 10-under par, defeating Scottie Scheffler and Kevin Tway by two shots.
The field is packed with some of the Tour’s best this week, highlighted by Texas resident and the No. 2 player in the world, Scottie Scheffler.
Scheffler is teeing it up for the second time in consecutive weeks after a T3 last week at Mayakoba. With a victory, Scheffler would regain the top spot in the Official World Golf Rankings.
Joining Scheffler is former Masters champion, Hideki Matsuyama. Matsuyama is three-for-three in made cuts this season; his best finish was a T25 at the Fortinet Championship in Napa.
Sam Burns, currently No. 12 in the world, is back in action after a top-10 finish at the CJ Cup last month. The four-time winner on the PGA Tour collected a T7 in this tournament last season.
Memorial Park Golf Course is one of the top municipal tracks in the United States and has been around since 1912. The property underwent extensive renovations to be able to bring the tournament back. The course measures 7,432 yards and plays as a par 70.
Players can expect to see strategically placed bunkers off the tee and contoured green complexes that can easily lead to three-putts. There are five par 3s on the property and eight par 4s that stretch over 490 yards. The winner of the tournament will find a solid combination of distance and accuracy off the tee.
Scheffler is the betting favorite heading into the tournament at +550 odds. The former No. 1 player in the world is looking to cap a historic 2022 year with his fifth victory in the calendar year.
Burns (+1200) follows Scheffler, also looking to cap a successful year that would include a trio of wins in 2022. The victory would also move the 26-year-old into the Top 10 rankings in the world.
Aaron Wise (+1600) and Tony Finau (+1600) round out the top four favorites. Wise continues to be a trendy top choice week in and week out as he searches for his second PGA Tour victory since his first in 2018.
