Memorial Golf Tournament Picks

Here are a few I would consider with my bet this week (no particular order)

Bryson DeChambeau- winner in the Memorial Golf Tournament in 2018 and a great value at 80-1 odds. Some sportsbooks listed him all over the place search for your best. Cameron Smith is another decent pick for value at 20-1. Of course Jon Rahm is listed top dog for a reason.

My Final – pick is Hideki Matsuyama at 25-1 odds

Longshot pick: Sahith Theegala a 200-1. He was three-time NCAA All-American at Pepperdine University and age 24.
