PGA Betting Odds and Preview: The Memorial Championship
By Matt Fargo
Playbook.com

The Memorial Tournament is the final tuneup for the US Open for most players. With that tournament going two weeks from now, a lot of the usual suspects take next week off, so they'll be looking to come out of this weekend with some momentum.

This is the course that Jack built and Nicklaus has been the host of this event since 1976 and even though his tournament has not gotten as big as he had always hoped, there is usually a very strong field.

Muirfield is a par 72 layout and is ranked as the toughest par 72 of all non-majors in 2009 at +1.4 over par. It has lessened up the last two years, finishing 19th in difficulty both in 2010 and 2011. Distance and accuracy off the tee are both extremely important but hitting greens and making birdies are two of the bigger challenges here. There are 77 bunkers in play with 11 of the 18 holes including water hazards so getting to the green is often the toughest part.

A course is usually judged by the finishing hole and how it can determine the outcome of the tournament and Muirfield is no exception. In 2009, Muirfield Village had the third-toughest closing hole on the PGA Tour as only Doral and Quail Hollow’s closing holes played tougher. Like the overall course ranking, the closing hole has let up in difficulty the last two years but the 18th has not come into play for the last two champions, Justin Rose and Steve Stricker.

Eight of the OWGR top 10 are in play this week as well as seven of the top 10 on the money list. The big story this week is the return of Tiger Woods who has won here four times but only once since 2001. Also on hand is the No. 1 player in the world, Luke Donald, who took over the top spot from Rory McIlroy after his win at the BMW PGA Championship. He came into the Memorial last year off the same win and finished T7.

Justin Rose (+1,500) is one of five players with odds of +1,500 or less but he could be the best of the bunch coming into Muirfield. He finished in second place behind Donald last week and loves playing at the Memorial. He won here in 2010 and has two other top four finishes. He has four top 10s on the PGA Tour this year, including a win at the Cadillac Championship.

We will ride the hot hand in Rickie Fowler (+2,000), who is coming off a T5 last week at Colonial. He has recorded four straight top 10s and while a letdown was possible following his win at the Wells Fargo Championship, it has only given him more confidence. He has had success here as well with a T22 last year which came after a solo second in 2010, three shots behind Rose.

Bo Van Pelt (+3,000) has been a popular choice here in recent weeks and we will go with him again. He got into contention last week with a Friday 64. Even though he faded over the weekend, he still finished T19. He has five top 10s this year with his best coming at The Players where he finished T7. Last year at the Memorial he finished T13 after tying for third in 2010.

Ernie Els (+4,000) is enjoying a great comeback season. He finished T7 last week he has three top 10s in 10 medal play events on the PGA Tour. He lost in a playoff in New Orleans so he has been close to breaking through. He won the Memorial in 2004 and while he finished 61st last year, he was not playing well anywhere all year.

Carl Pettersson (+6,000) won here in 2006 and two years later logged a T10. He did miss the cut last year but his past success negates that. He won the RBC Heritage last month and has two other runner-ups yet is still flying under the radar.

Recommended Tournament Win Five Pack at the Memorial (all for one unit)

Justin Rose (+1,500)
Rickie Fowler (+2,000)
Bo Van Pelt (+3,000)
Ernie Els (+4,000)
Carl Pettersson (+6,000)
