FedEx St. Jude Classic Preview and Picks
Matt Fargo
Covers.com

The final tuneup before the U.S. Open takes place this week as the PGA Tour heads to Memphis and the TPC at Southwind for the FedEx St. Jude Classic. This stop has been a mainstay on the PGA Tour schedule for years and although it has gone through some tough times in trying to gain sponsors, FedEx jumped in recently and is here through 2016. This is where the first ever 59 was carded as Al Geiberger achieved the feat back in 1959 at the then named Danny Thomas Memphis Classic.

TPC at Southwind was opened in March 1988 and has played host to the St. Jude Classic since 1989. The course has 10 water hazards making accuracy in the fairway and greens in regulation extremely important. Six years ago, Southwind played the toughest of all non-majors on the schedule but it was a lot easier in 2009 as it ranked 20th out of 51 courses in difficulty. The last four years though, it returned to difficult status and last year was the third hardest par 70 of non-majors.

Because of the U.S. Open being played next week, a lot of players are taking the week off and it is a watered-down field this week. The field includes only four players ranked in the top ten of the FedEx Cup Standings and no top ten player in the OWGR is playing after Matt Kuchar withdrew on Tuesday. Notables include Dustin Johnson, Lee Westwood, Zach Johnson and Phil Mickelson. With the field being light, it makes for a very wide open tournament as proven by some of the recent past champions.

Ryan Palmer (+1,900) is coming off a T5 at the Crown Plaza Invitational in his last start which was his fifth top ten of the season. He has missed only two cuts this year and he should once again be in the hunt here following a solo fourth last year and a T3 in 2012. He is ranked fourth in the all around.

John Senden (+3,000) is worth a strong look this week. He has one win already this year at the Valspar and he additionally has two top eights since then including a T5 at the Colonial in his last start. He has not played here the last two years but has two top tens in his career and coupled with his recent form, he is dangerous.

David Toms (+4,500) has excellent value and it is not solely based on his success at Southwind. He has won twice here while also coming in second two times and while he finished T56 last year, he was coming off four missed cut in his previous five starts. This year, he has made five straight cuts coming in including a T5 at Colonial.

Billy Horschel (+5,000) is getting longshot odds as he has kind of fallen out of the radar. He is coming off a T15 last week at the Memorial which was his best finish since a T6 at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. After a missed cut and a T72 in his first two starts here, he went on to a T10 finish last year.

David Hearn (+6,000) will be another longshot take this week and he is coming with favorable trends. The Canadian has made five straight cuts including a T6 at the Players which was his third top ten of the season. He finished T18 here last year which was his fourth consecutive made cut at TPC Southwind.

Tour heads to Memphis
By Sportsbook.ag

Tournament: FedEx St. Jude Classic
Date: June 5-8, 2014
Venue: TPC Southwind
Location: Memphis, Tennesseeio

It was another great week for the newcomers last week at the Memorial, as 22-year-old Hideki Matsuyama won his first career PGA Tour event after being victorious five times on the Japan Golf Tour. Big names like Bubba Watson and Adam Scott were both near the top of the leaderboard on Sunday, but neither were able to do enough to overcome the youngster.

This week the golfers will head to Memphis for the St. Jude Classic, a golf tournament that has been held annually in Tennessee since 1958. Last season, Harris English took to this course and won his first career PGA event as he shot 12-under par, winning by two strokes. With so many players resting before the U.S. Open, it looks like another prime chance for the underdog to take a win. Let’s take a look at a few of the players who could come away with the trophy this week.

Golfers to Watch

Dustin Johnson (14/1):
Johnson has been having a big year with top-10 finishes in half of his 12 tournaments. On this fairly short course, he can use his big drives (311.9 yards per, 2nd on tour) and ability to hit greens in regulation (67.7%, 8th on tour) to score low. Johnson is also a former winner in this tournament, shooting 9-under with three rounds of 68 or better in 2012. His great play has put him in fourth in the FedEx standings and he should be a solid bet this week to win his ninth career PGA event.

Kevin Na (40/1): Na went into a playoff last week at the Memorial, eventually losing on the first hole as he attempted to win his second career PGA tournament. He has four other top-10 finishes this season and has the 11th-best scoring average on tour (69.96). Na has not won on the tour since late-2011, but he seems poised to get another win very soon.

Harris English (26/1): English was the winner here last season, and he already has six top-10 finishes in 2014, including a win at the OHL Classic. His 71.2% greens hit in regulation percentage is third-best on tour while he has a scoring average of 69.89 (7th on tour). As English continues his solid season and plays on a course he has confidence with, a win is certainly not a far reach for the 24-year-old.

Martin Flores (55/1): Flores has placed in the top-20 in four of his past seven tournaments, including a 3rd-place performance at the Wells Fargo Championship in early May. He is having the best year of his young career while shooting a combined 94-under on Par-5’s (4th on tour). Flores finished tied for 13th here last season and should be able to put together another solid showing this weekend.

Robert Streb (110/1): Streb has improved in his second season on the PGA Tour, and after making just 12-of-25 cuts last year, he has done so in 10-of-11 events in 2014. He has shown he has the talent to get a victory with a runner-up performance at the Zurich Classic, and could be the next of a long line of first-time winners on tour this season.
