2022 Memorial Tournament: PGA Tour Golf Picks, Odds, Predictions 6/2/22

2022 Memorial Tournament
June 2, 2022 8:00 am EDT

This week, the PGA Tour presents golf betting enthusiasts with the 2022 Memorial Tournament.

Before I discuss my favorite golf bets for this week’s PGA Tour event let’s take a look at the golf course the field will play and a few key facts that I think are relevant to those placing golf wagers on the 2022 Memorial Tournament.

Draft Kings Bonus Offer

The 2022 Memorial Tournament will be played at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. This golf course is a par 72 that measures 7,543 yards. Additionally, the golf course was designed by the tournament host, Jack Nicklaus. Nicklaus always preferred to fade the golf ball (a left to right ball flight) as a player. Having stated that, it should come as little surprise that this course, which he designed, clearly favors the golfer that prefers to hit fades rather than draws. I would recommend that you keep this in mind as you decide which golfers to potentially place bets on this week.     

Key Facts

The average cumulative four round winning score of the five previous winners of the Memorial Tournament was 13 under par.

Muirfield Village Golf Club hosted the 1987 Ryder Cup and 2013 Presidents Cup.

Now let’s shift our focus to my favorite golf bets for the 2022 Memorial Tournament.

Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top ten.

Davis Riley +500

Davis Riley arrives at this week’s 2022 Memorial Tournament in outstanding form. More specifically, Davis Riley has accumulated four consecutive top 13 finishes on the PGA Tour, including a fourth place result at last week’s 2022 Charles Schwab Challnge.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2022 Memorial Tournament field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Davis Riley ranks second in strokes gained ball striking, sixth in GIR (greens in regulation), fifth in strokes gained tee to green, and eighth in bogey avoidance.

Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top 20.

Brendan Steele +350

Brendan Steele has accumulated three top 26 finishes in his last five events played on the PGA Tour, including an impressive ninth place result at the 2022 PGA Championship two weeks ago.

In relation to this week’s current listed 2022 Memorial Tournament field, in the last 24 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Brendan Steele ranks third in strokes gained off the tee, 11th in strokes gained ball striking, and eighth in GIR (greens in regulation).

It should also be noted that Brendan Steele finished 13th at the 2020 Memorial Tournament.
