<div><h2><span style="font-size:20px">Houston Open</span></h2><p><strong>October 10-13<br />Houston Golf Club, Humble, Texas<br />Par 72</strong></p><p>The Houston Golf Club has played host for the last seventeen years giving plenty of clues to which players like this type of course.</p><p>Cameron Tringale has had three top 10 finishes in the last decade at the Houston Golf Club. In the last few months, his form has caught the eye with a 50% strike rate for top 20 finishes. His statistics for tee to green have been excellent and suggesting he perhaps should have done better. Tringale is winless on tour but a reliable sort in the place markets and this week is a perfect one to attack in the top 10 section.</p><p>American President Donald Trump's putting advice helped Jim Herman win the Barbasol Championship in July. Herman was Trump's regular golf partner while working as an assistant professional at Trump National in Bedminster, New Jersey. A tip to revert back to a conventional grip and putter head did the trick for Barbasol and strangely enough he won the Houston Open after playing a friendly round with the President. Herman said after winning the Barbasol Championship “He motivates me and puts me in a good spot”. There is no way of knowing if they have played recently but the Barbasol Championship was only five starts ago and there is value supporting Herman in the side markets this week.</p><p>The 2008 champion Johnson Wagner will be sad this is the last year the Houston Golf Club holds the tournament has shown an affinity with the course. In 2016 he was runner up, losing in a three-way playoff to JB Holmes. The thirty-nine-year-old was born in Texas and knows the course well. He has not been threatening to win any tournament's recently but there looks value in a small place bet this week.</p><p>Australian Matt Jones only PGA Tour win was here in 2014 and is an inconsistent player on tour but he was fourth to Jim Herman a few starts ago at the Barbasol Championship. Despite his numerous missed cuts, he has managed a dozen top 20 finishes in the last two seasons on the PGA Tour showing when he makes the cut he often goes on to have good third and fourth rounds. Last week at the Shriners Childrens Hospital Open, he performed well and it is a good time to support Jones in the side markets.</p><p>Houston resident, Chris Stroud looks forgotten by the bookmakers this week in Texas, he has five top 40 finishes in the last decade at the Houston Golf Club. It is only half a dozen starts ago in July that he managed a fourth-place finish at the John Deere Classic followed by 15th at the Barracuda Championship. Last week he started the tournament well at the TPC Summerlin which is perfect timing for his hometown tournament this week.</p><p>Zach Sucher has the look of a player starting to feel comfortable on the PGA Tour after many years plying his trade around America on the lesser tours. The Travellers Championship in June was the first time he rose to prominence when an impressive runner up to Chad Reavie. He has started the new season well with successive top 30 finishes on the PGA and with three top 4 finishes in his last twenty tournaments he is the longshot selection this week in the top 5 market.</p><p>A much improved display by Beau Hossler last week in Las Vegas has put him on my radar for a bet this week. In April 2018 he produced a career best at the Houston Open when finishing second but a poor 2019 meant he lost his playing privileges. Last week was not such a surprise but there appeared to be some light at the end of the tunnel for the twenty-four year old from California after a 2nd place finish in August at the Nationwide Children's Hospital Open on the Korn Ferry Tour.</p><p>A journeyman professional worth a look this week is Shaun Stefani who holds some solid previous form at the course with a fifth place finish in 2014 the highlight. With four top 40 finishes in Houston and four in his last seven starts on the PGA Tour he is worth a small investment in the Paddy Power top 40 market.</p><p>A few ideas above for players to consider but only the five bets advised this week.</p><p><strong>Recommended Bets</strong></p><ul> <li>Cameron Tringale – Top 10 @ 6.50 (11/2) <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in the game with Paddy Power">Paddy Power</a></li> <li>Jim Herman – Top 20 @ 10.00 (9/1) <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Place your bets with Unibet!">Unibet</a></li> <li>Chris Stroud – Top 20 @ 7.00 (6/1) <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Place your bets with Unibet!">Unibet</a></li> <li>Zach Sucher – Top 5 @ 51.00 (50/1) <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=4fd3c129-b898-4816-9a61-9f7e8f34295a&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Place your bets with Unibet!">Unibet</a></li> <li>Shaun Stefani – Top 40 @ 4.00 (3/1) <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=df66db4b-b019-4343-9fc7-6c4f20e2a356&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Get in the game with Paddy Power">Paddy Power</a></li></ul><div> </div><div> </div><div style="text-align:center"><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=162&amp;a=ec641d03-1e6d-4096-9f5f-d2a6939022d0&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://cmscdn.staticcache.org/assets/image/0005/1349915/Biggest-Ever-Bet-Boost-1280x480-English-UK.jpg" style="width:100%" /></a></div></div>
