FanDuel Fantasy Golf Picks for the Houston Open at Memorial Park Golf Course
With the new PGA Tour season in full swing, PGA Tour pros are preparing for a trip to Houston, TX for the Houston Open. With a handful of golf's most notable names ready to tee it up, it's looking to be an exciting week of golf.
Let's take a look at some golfers to consider when putting together your fantasy team this week.

Sungjae Im didn't fare too well the last time this event tee'd up, finishing with a disappointing T-50. However, Im was struggling coming into this event last time around, finishing outside the top-40 in back-to-back starts prior to the Houston Open. This year, Im finds himself in very different form going into this tournament. Im is coming off back-to-back top-10 finishes, including a win a few weeks ago at the Shriners Children's Open. Im ranks top-10 so far on tour in a number of key categories, including 6th in Greens in Regulation (GIR), 6th in Scoring Average, 3rd in Strokes Gained (SG): Around-The-Green, 5th in SG: Tee-To-Green and 7th in SG: Total.
Yes, Brooks Koepka has struggled to start the season, and he is coming off a missed cut at the Mayakoba, and a middling finish at the CJ Cup, but he also missed the cut at last year's Mayakoba, and had a middling finish at the CJ Cup, but Koepka managed a T-5 finish at this event last year. Returning to this course could be just what he needs to kickstart his season just like it did last season.
Wise represents in ways the best of both worlds with the two guys that precede him on this list in regards to current form and past success on this course and he also comes at the best price. Wise has gotten off to a great start in this young PGA Tour season, he's on a streak of three consecutive top-15 finishes, which include two top-10 finishes and one top-five finish. While he has only played in this event once in his career, he grabbed a really solid 11th-place finish. If the former Oregon Duck can continue his great play, we could see an even better finish in this event than he had last time out.
