STAR GOLF PREVIEW Thurs: The Memorial Tournament

It’s a proper clash of the heavyweights at Jacks place this weekend. 

The Memorial has always been a popular choice with the pros, being hosted by Jack Nicklaus at his Muirfield Village course. Now it’s included in the PGA tour’s new elevated status with its freshly inflated purse, everyman and his dog wants to be teeing it up here.

Muirfield is nothing if not a stern test. Nicklaus and his team tinker with it every year and this year the par 72 course plays to 7,571 yards. A strong short game is essential in order to succeed at the Memorial with its demanding green complexes.

As per usual I’m going to avoid the big dogs with their modest odds and will look for some better each way value.

Tom Kim — Currently ? with

Kim has been running slightly hot and cold this year, but he showed signs of better form in the last couple of starts and this course could set up well to his strengths. If Kim’s driver is firing and he is hitting his second shots off the fairways, his superb iron play and strong putting game could see him being hard to beat here.

Eric Cole — Currently ? with

As I’ve stated on here recently, I have been very impressed by Eric Cole and his rise up the ranks this season with some outstanding performances in some high quality fields. He failed to fire last week at Colonial, but I’m going to stick with him again. Mark my words, Eric Cole is going to come in soon at a really nice price.

Keith Mitchell Currently ? with

Mitchell’s approach game ranks amongst the best on the PGA stats table this season. He also possesses a solid game. If he can marry the two and up his putting game slightly, he could end up being great value later this week.

Ryan Fox Currently ? with

Fox put on another good performance last week at Colonial to back up his excellent showing at the PGA Championship. The Kiwi’s game looks in a good place right now and he could pop up for a place or better at a lovely price.
