The Memorial is one of the best PGA Tour events of the year and bookmakers have released PGA Memorial Tournament odds.
Headlining the betting markets are Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy, with the latter looking to score an overdue win after another strong showing at the PGA Championship.
Money for McIlroy
McIlroy’s performance at the PGA Championship left many bettors disappointed, but that hasn’t stopped them from reloading with PGA Memorial Tournament odds.
The Northern Irishman failed to take advantage of the better conditions, and while he finished in the top ten, he could have done better.
McIlroy is already a seasoned winner when taking out the CJ Cup but he hasn’t lived up to the hype on the big stage recently. He hasn’t won a major since 2014, so winning tournaments like The Memorial Tournament would right the ship.
The 33-year-old doesn’t feel like he’s far away from putting it all together and patience is key.
“I definitely feel like it was one that got away,” McIlroy told Golf.com. “But again, I have to take the positives and the fact that if the eighth place at a major is absolutely the worst — and that’s a completely different story from where I was the first two majors last year in ’21. I missed the cut at Augusta, I finished 50th at the PGA. This year is a different story”. This year is a lot more positive. My golf game’s in a much better place, and I think at this point I just have to stay as patient as possible.”
Trio for Cantlay
Patrick Cantlay is a two-time winner of The Memorial Tournament and PGA golf betting odds are respecting his chances.
The 2019 and 2021 winner is on the third line of betting at +1400 with PGA Memorial tournament odds and they’re worth taking.
Despite missing the cut at the PGA Championship, Cantlay loves playing at Muirfield and it can be a horses-for-courses tournament.
His performance at the PGA Championship wasn’t ideal but he rarely plays well in major tournaments. Getting back to Muirfield should help and that’s reflected in betting markets.
Cantlay proved himself when winning the FedEx Cup last season, so he’s a big-time player and he is worth sticking with.
Matthew Fitzpatrick doesn’t fit the mold of your usual PGA Tour golfer and that’s what we like about him.
The 2013 U.S. Amateur champion takes notes on every shot and manages to record all the information without slowing down the field.
He admitted openly that he does this to gain an advantage because he is not the most physical golfer on the PGA Tour. As a result, we think he deserves some success at The Memorial Tournament.
Betting on golf can be rewarding, especially when following players at the juicy odds of +2500 like Fitzpatrick.
The Englishman comes off a strong performance at the PGA Championship and we believe it’s only a matter of time before he wins in America.
PGA Memorial Tournament odds are generous for Fitzpatrick and he’s on our tickets alongside McIlroy and Cantlay.
No Stalling for Scott
Scott Stallings went close at the Charles Schwab Challenge last week and he could carry that form over to The Memorial.
The 37-year-old finished T4 and was only two shots behind Scottie Scheffler and eventual winner Sam Burns, so it’s a step in the right direction.
He had missed the cut at the PGA Championship, so the three-time PGA Tour winner is nearing his best.
Stallings’ last win came at the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open but his talent is still there and bettors get +14000, so he’s worth a bob each way.Follow us on Twitter
