Rory McIlroy has formally committed to play in the Houston Open, which takes place two weeks before The Masters. The two-time major champion and current No. 1 player will make his third start in the event and his first since 2010. This year, as part of his ''6 Bags'' charity drive, McIlroy will use a bag emblazoned with the logo of Chinquapin Prep, a Houston-area school for disadvantaged youth. The bag will be auctioned off through McIlroy's foundation and all proceeds will go to the school. Louis Oosthuizen and Lee Westwood are among the other top international players committed to play in Houston.
