Memorial Tourny Picks
The 2010 Memorial Tournament will begin play on Thursday, and our team of writers and handicappers have three suggested picks for this weekend.
Tiger Woods 4/1
When Tiger Woods is playing, you have to look to play him. He is coming off two very poor showings, so it will be important for him to bounce back this week. Woods wouldn’t be entering the tournament if he didn’t truly think he could win and with the U.S. Open coming up, he needs some momentum going into the second major of the year.
Phil Mickelson 5/1
Like Tiger, it is hard to stay away from Mickelson in any tournament. Mickelson is coming off a missed cut last week and he hasn’t missed back-to-back cuts in years. With the top ranking in the world on the line and competing against Woods this weekend, Mickelson should be at his best and is a good play with 5/1 odds.
Steve Stricker 15/1
People have quickly forgotten about Steve Stricker, who is the 4th-ranked player in the world. He has yet to miss a cut this year and he already holds a win in the year. His worst finish is 52nd, but he has four top 10’s in 2010. With a stacked field, Stricker gets solid odds with 15/1 and is a good play.
The 2010 Memorial Tournament will be played at Murifield Village Golf Course in Dublin, Ohio starting on Thursday, June 3 and concluding Sunday, June 6.
