Shell Houston Open Details
The best golfers in the world are ready tee it up for the 2015 Shell Houston Open this
spring. This annual golf tournament is one of the most exciting events on the PGA Tour, and this year it will be held in early
April. Play tees off with the first round on April 1st for Thursday competition at the gorgeous Redstone Golf Club. The first
day of competition always has some surprises, which is fun to see in person. Often a golfer that is not one of the stars of
the PGA Tour will jump out to an early leave and be the buzz of the tournament. Play will continue on Friday and some of the
early leaders will begin to falter, while other players surge toward the top of the leaderboard. At the end of the day on
Friday players who did not play well enough are cut from the remainder of the competition.
Things really start to heat
up on Saturday, which in this case will fall on April 3rd, as the leaderboard picture begins to become clearer. Fans get a
sense of what players are truly in the running for the victory in this event, and those players often see the crowds following
them balloon into massive groups of people. When play beings on Sunday the intensity is ratcheted up a few notches, and the
leaders of the event will be the last to tee off. Those last couple of groups will see a lot of fans following them, especially
if they include some big names. The best events see the competition come down to the last couple of holes to declare the winner.
It's always exciting to see the champion hoist the trophy over his head in front of the crowd at the culmination of four days
of great golf performance. You can be there to see just that, as well as all the incredible golf action you can handle at
this year's Shell Houston Open.
