Target Player Profile: Smart Power player with course experience and solid short putting (Houston)

GC of Houston course: par 72 7441 yards

key features Large undulating and tiered greens, generous landing areas, lots of water trouble. Greens are Bermuda expected to run 12' on the stimp

Premium on: Driving distance / SG:OTT, putting from 5-15ft

Those with a high trajectory from approach have an advantage in terms of being able to get closer to some tough tiered pin positions. You don't want to short side yourself around the GC of Houston.

Note: the different slot in the calendar will see different conditions than the normal fast and firm setup to mimic Augusta

Johnny Vegas 66/80 to 1 resides in Houston and went to university in Texas. He ranked 2nd in strokes gained: off the tee in 2019 season and he is no. 1 in that category of those lining up in the field this week. The larger surfaces here and expected softer conditions will lend themselves to Vegas' ball striking and give him opportunity to avoid the weak part of his game (around the greens). Vegas has 2 top 20s in his last 3 here and I feel the conditions this year may suit
