Tee Times For This Weekend’s Shell Houston Open

The Florida swing has come to an end and the PGA tour moves to Texas for the next two weeks before the Masters. This weekend’s Shell Houston Open will be held at Redstone Golf Club in Humble, Texas and will feature some of the top local golfers on the tour. Here is a look at the local golfers competing and their tee times for Thursday and Friday.

Lee Westwood and Louis Oosthuzien (8am on tee 1 Thursday and 1pm on tee 10 Friday)- The two are neighbors in Old Palm and will look to continue to improve as they prepare for the Masters in a few weeks. Westwood’s best at this event was a tie for eighth in 2010 while Oosthuzien has been climbing up the World Rankings in recent weeks and is ranked sixth in the world going into the weekend.

Golf2-1Rory Mcllroy, Dustin Johnson, Keegan Bradley (12:50pm on tee 1 Thursday and 7:50am on tee 10 Friday)- This start studded threesome features not only some of the best golfers in our area but some of the top golfers in the world. Keegan Bradley (Tequesta) is coming off a third place finish last week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational and has three top five finishes in his last nine events. He finished fourth in this event last year and will look to get his first win of the season. Rory Mcllroy dropped to number two in the World Golf Ranking with Tiger’s win on Monday, but that is not phasing the Palm Beach Gardens resident. He took last week off but got plenty of practice at a local municipal course in Miami and is coming off a final round 65 at Doral. Dustin Johnson last played this event in 2009 and missed the cut. The Loxahatchee River resident took last week off just like Mcllroy and is coming off a 12th place finish at Doral.

Phil Mickelson, Hunter Mahan, Geoff Ogilvy (7:50am on tee 10 Thursday and 12:50 on tee 1 on Friday)- While none of the three are local residents, this threesome puts the last two winners of the this tournament together. Mahan is the defending champion and Mickelson won in 2011. Both will try and improve off their finishes at The Arnold Palmer Invitational. Mahan finished in a tie for 21st while Mickelson missed the cut.
