BOB WEST CHIP SHOTS — Houston Open still lead-in for Masters

Depending on how things play out, it looks like the Houston Open will be back in its preferred spot as the lead-in to the Masters.

The change, which came about because of the PGA Tour reworking its 2019-20 schedule, is for one year only.

In case you missed it, the recently postponed Masters has been rescheduled for Nov. 12–15.

Houston was supposed to have had that date as part of the 2020-21 schedule but agreed to move to Nov. 5–8.

Should things play out that way, it would be a huge boost for the first Houston Open at Memorial Park . . .

If you watched CBS’ replay of Tiger Woods’ memorable victory in the 2019 Masters Sunday, you learned a stunning fact about Tiger.

He’s made 20 holes-in-one in his life, but only one since 1999. And that ace came last year in a leisure round with Fred Couples and his son Charlie.
