The field this week for the Shell Houston Open an awful lot weaker than I expected it would be. The Shell Houston Open is the annual warm up for the Masters and the course sets up very similar with large, fast greens, making accurate approach shots the key and distance off the tee a big help. I will be staying well away from the Shell Houston Open market leaders this week and focusing completely on the perceived outsiders.

Shell Houston Open Picks
Pick 1: Jason Day E/W @ 50/1 (general)Getting stronger as the season goes on and has the game to do well around Redstone. Likes the big events and will hang around if he gets into contention......
Pick 2: Steve Marino E/W @ 50/1 (PP) Strange price on Marino for the Shell Houston Open where he has a good record and coming off the back of a near miss last week. Could be a good trading opportunity after round 3 as his Sunday performance is generally bad. Very accurate with his short irons.
Pick 3: Vaughn Taylor E/W @ 100/1(Skybet - price change)Taylor a regular feature on the Shell Houston Open leaderboard and runner up to Anthony Kim only last year, losing out in a playoff. Simmering right now and big price catches the eye.
Pick 4: Lucas Glover E/W @ 80/1 (PP)Signs of a return to form in his last outing 2 weeks ago. Long and straight off the tee and a good record around Redstone. Course suits his game.
Pick 5: Nick 'o Hern E/W @ 225/1 (B365 - price change)Top 5 here 2 years ago and a top 30 last week. Loves fast and firm conditions.
