2024 Texas Children's Houston Open preview

The Texas Children's Houston Open is this week, and the PGA Tour heads to Texas for a two-week run ahead of the Masters. The Houston Open is back before Augusta National, where it really belongs, and Memorial Park is a good municipal course for these players. It should favor a longer hitter, but ballstrikers thrive here the most -- regardless of length.

2024 Texas Children's Houston Open rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Scottie Scheffler: There is a yawning gap between Scheffler and everyone else at the moment, and he's done well at this venue.

2. Wyndham Clark: Clark is your next-best player on Tour at the moment by virtue of being runner-up to Scottie the last two times out.

3. Sahith Theegala: Theegala has been in the top 10 in his last two starts and has been enjoying a great year.

4. Will Zalatoris: Zalatoris was not good at The Players, but don't let that week distract you from his strong West Coast Swing and good run so far this year.

5. Jason Day: Day has been statistically very good this year, though that hasn't necessarily translated each week into a big check.

6. Tony Finau: Finau is defending champion from 2022, and he won here in a blowout. He missed his first cut of the year last week at Valspar.

7. Jake Knapp: Knapp already won this year at a longer venue that was wide open, and this one is a slightly tougher version of Vidanta Vallarta.

8. Si Woo Kim: SWK has been playing good golf the last month or so, but he's tough for people to pick because of his streaky nature.

9. Tom Hoge: Tommy Tables has been in the same boat, right on the fringes of the world top 50 and playing high-quality golf.

10. Keith Mitchell: Do you believe in the bounce back this week? Mitchell had a brutal Sunday at Innisbrook, but he's been playing well.
