This week we head to Murifield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio for the prestigious Memorial Tournament hosted by golf legend Jack Nicklaus. The course co-designed by Jack himself in 1974, plays as a challenging 7265 yd par 72. Accuracy off the tee and GIR will be the keys to success this week. We can expect all the players to bring there "A" game, this is known as Jack's tournament and the players will want to play their best with the Golden Bear present.
8 of the top 10 players in the world will be competing this week, including Tiger who has won here four times. Other notables include Phil Mickelson who'll be looking for his first Memorial Championship. 2012 Masters champ Bubba Watson will return to play along with world #1&2 Rory Mcilroy and Luke Donald. Steve Stricker will have a tough time defending his title vs this elite field of players. For some this will be a final tune up for the US Open(June 14-17).
I came back off holidays last week and hit a winner at Colonial with Zach Johnson(15-1) also picked up nearly 10 units in H2H plays. Since Bubba won the Masters for me(45-1) on April 8, I believe I have now had 5 outright winners in the past 8 events including my holiday card which only had 7 picks to win with no H2H match ups. I look to continue winning this week as we aim to boost our bankrolls for the upcoming US Open. Best of luck.
Here are my picks to win the event:
*R. Fowler 18-1(pinn) T-52
*B. Watson 38-1(5D) cut
*A. Scott 40-1(5D) T-46
*J. Day 40-1(bet365) cut
*B.V. Pelt 42-1(pinn) T-12
*L. Oosthuizen 50-1(bet365) cut
*J. Senden 90-1(5D) cut
*B. Grace 100-1(bet365) T-25
*B. Curtis 60-1(bet365) cut
*J. Wagner 350-1(5D) T-38

Lets do it again djs. I just grabbed my payout from the man and got sized for my new golf clubs! All because of you. thanks bro.
Rule #1. Bankroll Management!
Rule #2. Discipline!
Right on $hack!! I'm glad to hear that your winnings are staying on the golf course. I picked up some nice callaways in the off season with some college football money lol. Going to be a great event to watch this week. Can't wait for tee off!
*L. Donald -127(pinn) over R. Mcilroy $$WINNER$$
*L. Oosthuizen -110(bet365) over G. Ogilvy -loser-
*J. Day -115(pinn) over H. Mahan -loser

**All H2H plays are to win 2 units
***Experimental Play*** (.5unit)
*Draw +1600 B. V. Pelt & J. Day -loser-
Both of these guys are on my card I think they will both finish inside the top 20. At 16-1 gonna gamble a little bit and see if we can hit a draw.
Added a tourney match up, going with Adam Scott over Webb Simpson this week. I feel that with Steve Williams on the bag he will have an edge and getting a good price. Adam also has a slight edge in the key stat of GIR(9th vs 18th). "Stevie" helped his old buddy Tiger win this championship 4 times. Both Players are rested and are coming off of cuts. I think we are getting the best of it at this price.
Boy it looks like some nice value here!! One player that i just have a feeling on is J. Day. Normally I think he is a front runner, but may be feeling some pressure to start to earn his swaggar back!? it is only a matter of time before he cashes again THIS season. at 40-1 i think he is worth a shot. Also i am goint to take Phil in all tourney matchups that are offered to me. I see him having a great tourney..(no streach there right?!!). last week my plays were 16-5-4 all included tourney h2h, winner (serg) and h2h per round. R1 am plays i am thinking peterson over Senden, Furyk over SImpson, B. Haas over Na, Kbrad over Van Pelt. MAYBE Donald over ROry. i will check back later to see where you rate these?? your oppinion is greatley valued, as it should be!! If anyone is reading and wondering if they should follow....DO IT!! a great way to enjoy the weekned, and the expertise cannot be beat!! GD LK!! Thanks for posting!!
Thx for the plays djs123. I really like the Bubba Watson play. I think this couse could suit his game well. May go one day to watch since it's being palyed in my backyard. G/L to all who have been and who like me are starting to follow your great calls. Golf is not an easy game to cap or play.
Yo bwiz, J. Day is playing on a course he knows very well I look for him to have a great tourney this week.. I'm already on L.D. Over R.M. Luke is coming off some great euro tour play, the only one I don't like is your KB over BVP, I think BVP will play great this week, I am a KB fan but I think this course sets up better for Mr. Pelt. $BOL$
Hey pottery, Yeah Bubba a bit of a wild card himself.. His game sets up nice for this course but a few key stats left me wondering, but I like him regardless. $BOL$
KB is scratched, i will actually flip flop based on your heads up and go BVP. The one thing that ALWAYS worries me on KB is his long game...tee ball and long irons. his game is STRONG right to left, on a pretty tight track overall, this may cause some approach shots to be out of the rough more often then it would on a more open (larger fairways) type of course. Thansk for making me give this a second look. i was just going to straight drop the play, but becasue of my celts covering (not winning very sad!!) i will invest in BVP!! i will buzz a few tourney h2h bye you as well as pm R1 H2H and see how you rate them?? THansk for the once over!!! Lets start off the weekend with heavy pockets!!!! GD LK!!
