Lanto Griffin poses with the trophy after winning the Houston Open at the Golf Club of Houston on October 13, 2019.

The final PGA Tour event before the Masters, the Vivint Houston Open, will feature a strong field gearing up for the November major at Augusta National. Among the headliners competing are World No. 1 and reigning FedEx Cup champion Dustin Johnson. This will be DJ’s first start since his positive COVID test before the CJ Cup. Joining him are other past Houston winners Henrik Stenson, Jordan Spieth and Brandt Snedeker.

Beyond the field prepping for the year's final major, the another wrinkle this week is that officials are letting 2,000 fans a day on the property, the first time since the PGA Tour's return to gofl in the summer that spectators will be allowed at a U.S.-based tournament. Everyone on-site is required to wear a mask at all times.

Additionally, the tournament is being held for the first time since 1963 at Memorial Park, a municipal course that was totally redesigned by architect Tom Doak—with some input from Brooks Koepka. The four-time major winner will be playing this week as well and we’ll see if his advice on the overhaul gives him an advantage.

Defending champ Lanto Griffin will look to defend his title at this public course. Griffin narrowly bested Scott Harrington and Mark Hubbard in 2019 to win his first PGA Tour victory. It was a six-foot par on the 72nd hole that clinched it for him.

As preparation for Augusta, Phil Mickelson will also be playing in Houston. He chose this event over the senior tour’s Charles Schwab Cup Championship. Lefty last won this event back in 2011.

The winner will receive 500 FedEx Cup points and a $1.26 million share of the $7 million purse.
