The Memorial Preview
All the headliners will come out this week for the Memorial, one of the biggest non-major tournaments of the year. A younger Tiger Woods used to dominate here, back when his putter was one of the best, and Luke Donald returns to the U.S. fresh off another stellar performance oversees. Here’s a look at this week’s best bets.
Jim Furyk (25/1): Furyk has a strong track record at the Memorial, where he won in 2002 and has finished top-10 six times. He missed the cut a year ago when he came stumbling into the week, but last week he was the only player in the field to shoot four rounds in the 60’s en route to a solo fourth at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
Justin Rose (15/1): Rose has three top-5 finishes at the Memorial, including his win here in 2010. He continued his outstanding 2012 last week with a second-place finish at that always difficult BMW PGA Championship in England.
Luke Donald (10/1): He enters this week as the favorite after breezing to a victory at the BMW PGA Championship in England. Donald has finished top-10 in his past two and four of his past six starts stateside.
Tiger Woods (15/1): Tiger’s odds are always inflated, but this week it’s not too bad considering he’s won here four times, and he posted a solid T19 in his only post-scandal start, in 2010. He’s struggled since winning at Bay Hill, but Woods has a great chance to break through again at Muirfield Village.
Steve Stricker (20/1): The defending champ had never gone top-10 at the Memorial until last year’s win. He hasn’t had a great year, missing the cut at The Players in his last start, but Stricker is capable of getting very hot very quickly.
