The Charles Schwab had quite the mental finish. Burns basically had to sit there for a couple of hours and watch everyone collapse against him. Then an amazing play to beat Scheffler in the playoff. Amazing stuff.
Betting wise it was a frustrating one. Kevin Na came tied for 7th. The 45/1 pick was just two strokes out of a Top 5 cash for us. Hovland had an excellent first two days then struggled on round 3, and ended 21st.
Max Homa was similar as both of them shot a 73 on round 3. Fleetwood not so fawr behind. And man how about Russell Knox? The 125/1 pick looked like he might actually content for awhile alas he fell short. I didn’t like the price of Top 20 for him but hopefully some of you did and cashed.
Disappointing to not have a cash but all picks made the cut, played well and that’s golf.
I didn’t see Burns winning that at all. he was nowhere for me. Props to him with a hell of a finish.
Let’s get onto this week. Currently 15.99u in profit for the year with golf.
The Memorial Betting Tips
E/W (Each-Way) bets mean you split that amount. So if it is a $250 E/W bet, that means $125 on them to win, $125 on them to place (Usually in the Top 5)
Muirfield Village is a good one usually although there was a bit of unhappiness last year with the changes. Lot of differences due to the renovations the previous year so it makes me wonder how much of the old metrics should apply here.
Going with a total of 2u on this one. Rahm is tempting because this was the tournament last year where he had it in the bag and then of course had COVID and had to pull out. Have to wonder if that gives him extra motivation here.
$62.50(0.5u) on Matthew Fitzpatrick To Win & E/W @ 22/1
Performed well here previously with a 3rd place in 2020. Playing excellent golf. Game should suit this course and with him off last week, nice and fresh for this one hopefully.
$31.25 (0.25u) on Shane Lowry To Win & E/W @ 25/1
Excellent finish here last year with 6th place. His form is great going in here and just looking back at his performance last year he was superb in all the key categories for this tournament. Like him here.
