The Memorial Tournament Picks and Predictions

Introduction
[0:17 - 9:36]
Welcome to the Golf Preview Podcast for Week 23 at the Memorial Tournament. I'm your host, Will Docter, here to provide you with all the picks and predictions for the action at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. This event marks the second to last signature event of the season, and we're just one week away from the U.S. Open. Despite battling a sinus infection, I'm here to deliver our units update, season review, and of course, the picks for this week.

Season Review
We're up 55.3 units on the year, coming off a 1.15 positive unit week at the RBC Canadian Open. Our success has been highlighted by significant wins, including Robert McIntyre's top 20 finish at +320, and Akshay Bhatia's victory at 70-1 at the Valero Open. The turnaround over the last eight weeks has been phenomenal, and we aim to continue this momentum.

Top Five Favorites and Predictions
[9:47 - 29:03]

  • Scottie Scheffler (+405): Scheffler is favored this week due to his outstanding performance this season, with four wins and consistent top finishes at Muirfield. He excels on bent grass greens and is currently on a hot streak with his putting. Scheffler is one of my two outright winners this week.
  • Xander Schauffele (+900): Schauffele, world number two, recently won the PGA Championship but hasn't had much success at Muirfield. Given his current form and previous results here, I'm passing on him this week.
  • Rory McIlroy (10-1): Rory has shown significant improvement since working with Butch Harmon. His recent form, including a win at the Wells Fargo Championship and a commendable finish at the PGA, makes him a strong contender. I'll have him in a matchup over Colin Morikawa.
  • Colin Morikawa (14-1): Morikawa has had mixed results at Muirfield, with distance off the tee being a potential issue on this long course. I'm taking Rory over Morikawa at -130 on Bovada.
  • Victor Hovland (18-1): The defending champion, Hovland, has been playing well, especially after reuniting with his short game coach, Joseph Mayo. He is my second outright winner this week.

Outright Winners and Matchups
[29:04 - 36:37]

  • Scottie Scheffler (+405): Scheffler’s combination of power, precision, and form makes him a top pick.
  • Victor Hovland (18-1): Hovland's recent performance and familiarity with the course give him an edge.
  • Matchup 1: Rory McIlroy over Colin Morikawa at -130.
  • Matchup 2: Davis Riley over Chris Gotterup at -135. Riley's recent win and solid course history make him a strong pick.

Pick to Place and Sleeper
[36:38 - 39:28]

  • Pick to Place: Ludwig Aberg to top 10 at +225. Despite a fluky missed cut at the PGA Championship, Aberg has consistently performed well on challenging courses.
  • Sleeper: Sepp Straka to top 10 at +400. Straka’s distance and shot shaping abilities make him a good fit for Muirfield, and he enters the tournament with confidence.

First-Round Leader
[39:29 - 44:13]

  • Corey Conners to top 10 after round one at +450. Conners’ strong putting and recent performance suggest he could start strong at Muirfield.

Lineups and Best Bet
[44:14 - 48:31]

  • Yahoo Six-Man Lineup: Victor Hovland, Hideki Matsuyama, Billy Horschel, Sepp Straka, Sung Jae Im, Will Zalatoris.
  • PGA Tour Lineup: Victor Hovland, Hideki Matsuyama, Davis Riley, Corey Conners. Bench: Billy Horschel, Will Zalatoris.
  • Scoring Prediction: Winning score will be 12 under par.
