Jude Classic PGA Golf Odds And Betting Predictions

Padraig Harrington has withdrawn from the St Jude Classic in Memphis after suffering an unusual elbow injury.

His price for the second major of the year could come crashing down if he keeps up the momentum with another prominent performance but it is a familiar name who it seems won't be in Wisconsin who receives the first vote of confidence. It's possible to have a player finish top-10 in fantasy points while not finishing anywhere close to the top-10 in the actual event.

Missed the cut here a year ago but arrives in Memphis playing some very good golf - T6 at the Memorial and T4 at The Players. Recently he has made 7 consecutive cuts inclusive of 3 top 10 finishes. Look for the golf gods to reward him for prioritizing his daughter's graduation over the U.S. Open.

Stanley couldn't qualify for the U.S. Open this week, but I think his sights are on a PGA Tour win.

Fowler is ninth in the world rankings.

Rickie Fowler is the +800 favourite.

With Scott revamping his worldwide schedule to contest the tournament prior to each of the four majors in 2017, the 36-year-old returns to Memphis' TPC Southwind for the first time since 2007. Has posted a top 25 in three of his last four events. However, Crane's history with the St. Jude Classic is too hard to pass up. Berger is +2500 to repeat, which no one has done at the St. Jude.

Projected champion: Brooks Koepka. There are a ton of water hazards around this course, so accuracy is key to avoid those big numbers that can derail a round. A win would certainly get Poulter in the U.S. Open field, and I value his chances with +5000 odds.

Just missed: Adam Scott and Kevin Kisner. Graham DeLaet also is skipping after a Top 10 last week. The roller coaster that has been his career normally results in either wins or missed cuts, but all he has exuded this season is a consistency between T15 and T55.
