NOTES
It`s the final preparation for Augusta National and The Masters. With the season`s first major title less than two weeks from teeing off, this will be the last chance for players to get their games in major shape. As tends to be the case, several foreign players made the trip to the U.S. earlier to get some work done. Rory McIlroy, Lee Westwood and Martin Kaymer headline the European contingent. Phil Mickelson entered the field as well as Vijay Singh, but who knows if he can go? Singh withdrew from his last two starts citing a back injury so his presence is in question. The hottest golfer in the world right now also entered the field. Ernie Els, who won the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in a Monday finish, will try to keep the momentum going. Els captured the WGC-CA Championship at Doral a few weeks back. With his victory on Monday, Els is the only multiple winner on tour this year and heads to the Masters as a favorite. 2009 champion Paul Casey withdrew before the first round because of an injury. Last year, Casey only needed a bogey on the first playoff hole to defeat J.B. Holmes. Casey earned his first PGA Tour win and first victory in America and vaulted up to sixth in the world rankings. Casey tied for 20th last year at Augusta and will be a player to watch at The Masters, depending on his status after the injury. A final thought on the "traditional unlike any other." With the top 50 in the world getting invited after the Arnold Palmer finally ended, if someone wins the Houston Open and is not otherwise eligible for the Masters, he would get invited. This tournament is the 10th-oldest event on the PGA Tour, dating back to 1946. In 2006, the event moved to the Tournament Course at Redstone Golf Club, which opened in 2005. The course, designed by "U.S. Open Doctor" Rees Jones and player consultant David Toms, was created especially to host a PGA Tour event. Golf Channel has the first two rounds, then NBC takes over on the weekend. Next week is The Masters, won last year by Angel Cabrera in a playoff over Kenny Perry and Chad Campbell.
