Dustin Johnson and Jason Day are the online golf betting favorites to win the 2017 Memorial Tournament at the Jack Nicklaus-designed course at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. Figures, them being the two highest-ranked golfers on the field. But fans betting on golf have plenty of alternatives to pick from.
DJ has finished in the top 6 in seven of his first 10 starts this year, including five straight podiums, as well as wins at the Genesis Open, WGC Mexico and WGC Match Play. The World No. 1 finished in third place in the 2016 Memorial Tournament.
Day almost won his PGA Tour event of the season but lost to par on the first extra hole against Billy Horschel at the 2017 AT&T Byron Nelson. JD appears to have finally gotten his groove back and he will need to be on top of his game at Muirfield Village where – even though he is a member – Day has not finished higher than tied for 27th in eight starts.
McGirt overcame Jon Curran to win the 2016 Memorial Tournament, his first PGA Tour event victory. McGirt has finished in the top 25 in four of his last seven starts, and tied for third place at last month’s RBC Heritage. It is worth nothing for fans betting on golf that Tiger Woods is the only golfer who has won this event back-to-back.
Another perennial online golf betting contender, Spieth tied with Jon Rahm and Sean O’Hair (but no Chuck Palumbo) for second place at the D&D Invitational. Fans betting on golf welcome this return to form after Spieth missed the cut in three of his previous four starts.
Kuchar won the 2013 edition of the tournament, which was his 6th PGA win and next-to-the-last before the 2014 RBC Heritage. The Kuch has seven top 15 finishes at the Memorial Tournament since 2007, and has posted top 12 finishes in his last two starts; the AT&T Byron Nelson and the Dean & DeLuca Invitational. He will be looking to become the seventh multiple winner of this tournament.
Cauley tied for 5th place at the Byron Nelson, his third top 10 finish in his last four outings. Cauley finished tied for 38th in the 2016 Memorial Tournament, posting a seven-under-par total of 281.
Haas finished 4th in the 2013 Memorial at Muirfield, where he has three top 18s in his past four starts at this event. He tied for 12th at the Dean & DeLuca Invitational last week.
Kirk is not unaccustomed to making deep runs in big profile events. The Tennessean finished 12th at the Players Championship, and tied for 4th place in the 2014 Memorial Tournament.
Singh is your usual online golf betting long shot. The Big Fijian won the 1997 Memorial and was the runner up to Tiger Woods in 1999. Singh had his best finish in the PGA Tour in eons with a T16 in the Players Championship.
