My Picks

Tiger Woods

I’ve only picked Tiger Woods to win once this year, but I think now is a perfect time to do so again.  Woods is making his 10th appearance of the year on tour, so he’s gotten some consistency going and should be in really good form heading into this year’s memorial. Woods has won this event five times, including three straight years from 1999-2001.

More importantly, Woods has recorded four top-12 finishes in his last six starts as he gets set to make his 16th appearance in this tournament. Woods currently ranks an encouraging 13th on tour with a 69.988 scoring average and is 10th in strokes gained overall and has recorded a whopping eight top-five finishes in his 15 appearances here, not counting his five victories.

Matt Kuchar

I know Kuchar has been a bit of a mess this season by failing to finish better than T-17 in his last seven starts on the PGA Tour, but he’s also recorded back-to-back top-five finishes at the Memorial the last two years and won it in 2013, so now could be a perfect time for a surprising breakout performance.

Longshot

Marc Leishman

Leishman has recorded a trio of top-15 finishes at Muirfield Village in the last three years and that tells me he’s consistent at this event if nothing else. At 40-1 odds, he looks like a great longshot pick to me!
