FedEx St. Jude Championship
August 11, 2022 7:00 am EDT
This week, the PGA Tour travels to Tennessee for the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship.
Before I discuss my favorite golf bet for this week’s PGA Tour event, let’s take a quick look at the golf course the field will play and the key player statistics that I think are the most vital to a player’s success this week.
The 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship will be played at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee. This course is a par 70 that measures 7,243 yards. The golf course features narrow fairways and small green complexes. This track also has 11 water hazards that are strategically placed throughout the golf course.
The key player statistics that I am looking at this week are GIR (greens in regulation), strokes gained approach, strokes gained off the tee, and birdie or better percentage.
Here is my favorite golf bet for the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship!
Here is a golfer to consider placing on your card to finish in the top five.
Tony Finau +400
The 32-year-old American arrives at this week’s FedEx Cup playoff event on the heels of two consecutive wins on the PGA Tour (2022 3M Open: 2022 Rocket Mortgage Classic). I can assure you that no other golfer competing in this week’s tournament field can make that claim.
In relation to this week’s current listed 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship field, in the last 12 rounds played on the PGA Tour, Tony Finau ranks first in strokes gained ball striking, second in birdie or better percentage, and first in strokes gained approach.
I think Finau’s odds of +400 present outstanding value to the golf bettor. Due to that fact and Tony Finau’s recent outstanding play on the PGA Tour, I am backing Finau to post a top five finish this week.
