Stephan Jaeger can thank Scottie Scheffler’s putting troubles, as it helped Jaeger claim the Houston Open title. Scheffler missed two birdie putts over the final two hours, essentially gifting Jaeger the victory. That’s not to say he didn’t earn the win, finishing the tournament -12.

Current favorites to win the 2024 Houston Open

Scottie Scheffler (+275 at Caesars Sportsbook)

Scheffler has had a lights out season so far. With consecutive wins at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and The Players Championship, Scheffler has added to his stranglehold as the number one golfer in the world. Leading the tour in scoring at 69.286, birdie average at 5.48 and hitting a whopping 77.78% of greens in regulation, Scheffler has all the attributes to contend at Memorial Park Golf Course. The Texas native will have all the support of the home crowd as well, being from Dallas and having played his college golf at the University of Texas, not that Scheffler needs the support but it’s just one more reason to love the worlds number one golfer heading into this event.

Wyndham Clark (+1200 with DraftKings sportsbook)

Having already won this season at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and a tie for second after just missing a putt to force a playoff against Scheffler at the Players Championship, defending U.S. Open champion Wyndham Clark comes into Houston in great form. Clark has three wins over the past two seasons and is creeping up the board as golfers who can challenge Scheffler as best on tour.

Tony Finau (+2500 with bet365 sportsbook)

Defending champion Tony Finau shot a blistering 16-under par in late 2022 to win this tournament by 4 strokes when it had a different title sponsor as the Cadence Bank Houston Open. With just one top ten in seven events this season, it’s been a tough go for Finau this season even though he has made the cut in every event he has teed up for.

Jason Day (+2500 with FanDuel sportsbook)

After winning twice in 2018, crowd favorite Jason Day  had to wait five years between victories before he finally won an event last year at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Now almost a year removed from that win Day is looking to add his 14th career Tour win to his trophy mantle. Having made six of seven cuts this year while recording three top ten finishes, Day seems to always find himself lurking near the top of leaderboards. yards of the green on his approach.

Sahith Theegala (+1800 with DraftKings sportsbook)

A young star in the field is Sahith Theegala, who continues in search of his second career win on the PGA Tour. The 26-year-old has made seven of eight cuts this year with four top ten finishes and one second place to show for his season. Coming off a tie for ninth at the Players Championship, Theegala sits sixth on tour in strokes gained total including an impressive ranking of seventh on strokes gained putting. With an accurate driving game, it’s around the greens that Theegala struggles.

Houston Open 2024 longshot

Daniel Berger (+20000 with DraftKings sportsbook)

It’s been a year of longshots on the PGA Tour this season with several of the winners coming from odds of +8000 and longer pretty much all season except for Scottie Scheffler and Wyndham Clark. This week there are three names that stand out as longshots to target in Houston.

Back to playing full-time on the tour this year Daniel Berger  stands out in this relatively quiet field. With four career wins but none since the 2021 Pebble Beach Pro-Am, the Florida native has exempt status throughout the rest of the season but would like to increase that by getting into the winner’s circle. Berger will need to be precise off the tee this week where he sits sixth in driving accuracy, an excellent ball striker with his irons, Berger will need to be in control of them this week if he wants to contend.

Houston Open betting trends

With the rough at Memorial Park not being much of an issue and with very few hazards off the tee it will be interesting to see how the players’ driving distance plays into account this week. Someone to keep an eye on is Chris Gotterup (+17500 to win Houston Open) who has gained over 17 yards in driving distance over the competition in his last 36 rounds.

Houston Open debutants 2024

Making his Houston Open debut this week, Kurt Kitayama (+6000 to win Houston Open) has the tools to compete on this tough track this week. A course where the penalty of missing a fairway is very forgiving. The winner of Bay Hill last year, Kitayama, also finished sixth at last year’s PGA Championship.

Another player making his debut at Memorial Park this week is tour rookie Jake Knapp (+5500 to win Houston Open) and he already has a win in his opening year on tour. Keeping the ball in play will be easier this week with hardly any rough so look for Knapp’s game to be a perfect fit. 17th in strokes gained tee to green, Knapp is one of multiple first-time winners on tour this year.
