Phil, Rickie, Jordan Playing Ahead of Masters

The first major championship of the PGA Tour season is only days away and some of the favorites at Augusta are getting their games primed for the Masters this week at the Shell Houston Open. You can catch early-round coverage on Thursday and Friday exclusively on PGA TOUR LIVE before the televised coverage begins on Golf Channel at 4 p.m.

Four of the top-10 in the world will be in Texas this week, headed up by No. 5 Henrik Stenson, No. 6 Jordan Spieth, No. 7 Adam Scott and No. 9 Rickie Fowler. Every one of those top-10 players, along with the likes of Phil Mickelson, Justin Rose, Patrick Reed and Jon Rahm are featured this week on PGA TOUR LIVE.

Defending champion Jim Herman and other PGA Tour winners Daniel Berger, Jimmy Walker and J.B. Holmes will also be featured.
