Hit a few winners last week, but did not get the big outright winner. We were close though, so that is all you can ask for week in and week out. You know the best way to get over a loss? Get right back on the horse, or so they say. I’m still riding high and in the money from the Webb Simpson RBC Heritage pick, but we need to hit again to keep this rolling at The Memorial with our picks and parlays for the tournament.
2020 Memorial Tournament Picks & Parlays
So, this week we are back at Muirfield Village and reports are that the course will be playing differently compared to last weekend. Look for faster green speeds, thicker rough, new pin positions and new tee boxes.
The strength of the field is also much stronger than last week. This is the strongest field in PGA Tour history based on world rankings, including five-time champion of this event, Tiger Woods.
Ok, let’s get to it. Here are our picks to win it all at the 2020 Memorial Tournament:
Xander Schauffele +3000
Schauffele likes to elevate his game to a higher level against tough competition, so if not now, then when? The field is absolutely stacked, so you are getting some value on him this week.
He finished T-14 last weekend and 14th at the 2019 Memorial, so the consistency is there. His game is made for this track, so I love the payout here.
Abraham Ancer +5000
Betting on Ancer has been money in the bank since the restart, at least for me. His ball striking has been amazing and he is super consistent, as he has six top-15 finishes in his past seven starts. His T-12 at WGC-Mexico, T-14 at the Charles Schwab Challenge and his runner-up at the RBC Heritage were all very strong and deep fields, like he will face this week.
Per the RickRunGood.com database (very nice resource btw), only three golfers have gained more strokes than him since the restart. And get this, Ancer’s total is the best for anyone who has played only three events. At 50-1, you have to take a chance on him. His time is coming soon.
John Rahm +2200
Rahm has been up and down lately, but he is a talented youngster. Here are some positives: gained 4.0 strokes from approach last week and picked up 2.0 off the tee by gaining distance and fairways on the field with a good driver showing. He always adds strokes off the tee and with his irons. If he can make a few puts, he should be in the mix come Sunday. I like him to continue the momentum from his scorching hot Sunday round with 10 birdies. Also, for being one of the best golfers in the world, you are getting some value on him in this spot.
I so badly want to bet on Tiger to win it all, but took some props on him instead. Will be rooting for him and one of these three guys to win it all!
That’s it for our Memorial picks and parlays, good luck everyone! I think this could be our weekend.
