 width=The PGA Tour is back in Texas for the second straight week at the Shell Houston Open, which will serve as the final event before the Masters next week.

Matt Jones picked up his first and only victory on the PGA Tour at this event last year when he chipped in for birdie on the first playoff hole to defeat Matt Kuchar.

There are many big names in the field this week as players look to tee it up one more time in preparation for the Masters.

Jones will be back in action as he looks to successfully defend his title. Last week's Valero Texas Open winner Jimmy Walker will be in the field along with runner-up Jordan Spieth.

Sergio Garcia, Justin Rose and Patrick Reed are also playing this week. World No. 2 Henrik Stenson withdrew from the tournament on Monday due to the flu.

The first major championship of the season, the Masters, is next week. Defending champion Bubba Watson is looking to collect his third green jacket in Augusta. The lefty went on to win by three shots last year.
