Golf Rankings for Shell Houston Open
In five worldwide starts this year, Hansen has two top-15s and four top-30s. The Danish golfer hasn’t competed at Restone since 2008, but is a good sleeper selection among the international players in this field.
Jeff Overton [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #190
After three straight finishes inside the top 20 (including a season-high T5 at Copperhead), Overton blew a possible top-30 at Bay Hill following a disastrous final round of 84. Overton hasn’t been very good at Restone historically, but his performance this week is certainly worth monitoring as he looks to regain his 2010 form.
Coming off a victory on the Champions Tour, Couples is an intriguing pick at Restone, where he won back in 2003. Boom Boom added top-fives at the site in 2008 and 2009, but has placed outside the top-50 in the last two.
Spencer Levin [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #169
After finishing solo third at Scottsdale and notching a top-10 at Pebble, Levin has finished outside of the top 30 in three of his last four events and missed his first cut of the season at Bay Hill.
Y.E. Yang [Yahoo Class C] - World Ranking: #132
Yang has finished inside the top-35 in two of his last three stoke play events and finished T31 at Restone in 2010.
Despite winning this event in 2010 and finishing T13 at Restone last year, Kim is an extremely risky pick. He’s missed four cuts in seven starts this season, but has made two of his last three.
