Re: 2012 PGA FedEx St. Jude Classic Odds To Win: McIlroy & Johnson Favored

PGA Betting Odds and Preview: FedEx St. Jude Classic
By Matt Fargo
Playbook.com

This stop has been a mainstay on the PGA Tour schedule for years and after two years of limbo, the event is again strong with a big title sponsor.

TPC at Southwind has 10 water hazards making accuracy in the fairway and greens in regulation extremely important. Four years ago, Southwind played the toughest of all non-majors on the schedule but it was a lot easier in 2009, ranking 20th out of 51 courses in difficulty. In 2010, it ranked third out of the 14 par 70s on tour. Last year, it ranked as fourth hardest.

Because of the U.S. Open being played next week, a lot of players are taking the week.The field includes only two players ranked in the top 10 of the FedEx Cup Standings, Zach Johnson and Rory McIlroy. The only top 10 player in the OWGR is McIlroy. The field includes 13 winners of major championships including three-time winner Padraig Harrington as well as the two previous U.S. Open winners, McIlroy and Graeme McDowell.

David Toms (+2,000) is a two-time champion here, winning in 2003 and 2004. He has four top 10s since then including three top threes where he was the runner-up twice. He was starting to play better before his missed cut at The Players. He had two straight top 15s but a return to Southwind could ignite another deep run on the weekend.

Graeme McDowell (+2,500) is back in action on the PGA Tour after a missed cut at Sawgrass, his first MC in seven stroke play events. He has played fairly well with two top 10s, including a solo second at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. He should be hungry as his last worldwide event was at the BMW PGA Championship where he missed the cut. His accuracy will be a big asset here.

Fredrik Jacobson (+3,000) hasn't made a lot of noise on the PGA Tour this year but he has been steady. He missed the cut at The Players but prior to that had four top 20s in seven medal-play events. He has made the cut the past five years at the St. Jude Classic and last year was in contention before a Sunday 75 put him in a tie for 32nd. He is a solid ball striker that fits this course very well.

Camilo Villegas (+4,000) has been playing very poorly but Memphis seems to turn him around. He has made the cut in all six of his starts here including two top eights the last two years. He tied for third last year which came after two MCs and a T30 while the year before, his best finish in his three previous starts was a T28.

For a longshot we look to Kevin Stadler (+6,000). He played very well at the Memorial last week with a T16 after a rough four-event stretch. Prior to that though he had three top 10s in four starts, so he can be streaky and could make a run in this weak field. His last two starts at Southwind resulted in a T56 and MC but his T12 in 2009 shows he can go low here.

Recommended Tournament Win Five Pack at FedEx St. Jude Classic (all for one unit):

David Toms (+2,000)

Graeme McDowell (+2,500)

Fredrik Jacobson (+3,000)

Camilo Villegas (+4,000)

Kevin Stadler (+6,000)
