This week, the PGA Tour heads to Houston for the final tune-up before The Masters. The marquee matchup features World No. 2 Lee Westwood against No. 9 Matt Kuchar, but there’s four other exciting matchups involving golfers in the top 60 of the world rankings. Last week, our record for the year dropped to 52-30-7, but we should bounce back this week with a good showing from a trio of South Africans.

2011 Shell Houston Open Head to Head Odds

Lee Westwood, England (2) -110 vs. Matt Kuchar, USA (9) -120

Westwood last played three weeks ago at the WGC-Cadillac Championship, where he finished T18, making his third top 20 this year. Kuchar also hasn’t played since the Cadillac, where he finished fifth. He has five top 10s this year, and has only once finished worse than T17.

Our pick: KUCHAR.

Phil Mickelson, USA (6) -115 vs. Hunter Mahan, USA (18) -115

Phil finished T24 last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, his best finish in stroke play since a T9 at Pebble Beach seven weeks ago. Mahan was T38 last week, but he has three top 10s this year.

Our pick: PHIL.

Steve Stricker, USA (10) -120 vs. Charl Schwartzel, South Africa (29) -110

Stricker last played three weeks ago at the Cadillac, where he finished T18. It was Stricker’s best result since starting the year with back-to-back top 10s in Hawaii back in January. Schwartzel finished T47 last week, his worst result in three Florida Swing tournaments this year.


J.B. Holmes, USA (58) -130 vs. Ernie Els, South Africa (13) EVEN

Holmes finished T47 last week in his tournament since his surprise run to the Match Play quarterfinals. He has three other top 20 finishes this year. Els missed the cut last week, the second time he didn’t make the weekend in his last three tournaments, but Els did finish T15 at the Cadillac three weeks ago.

Our pick: ELS.

Retief Goosen, South Africa (19) -115 vs. Padraig Harrington, Ireland (36) -115

Goosen finished T28 at the Transitions two weeks ago, his second-best finish in four tournaments in the US this year. Harrington missed the cut at the Transitions, a week after finishing T10 at the Cadillac.

Our pick: GOOSEN.
