The FedEx St. Jude Invitational – a World Golf Championship – will be played this week at TPC Southwind in Memphis TN. This is the same course that has played host to the original Memphis Classic for many years. Water comes into play in half of the holes and the course demands many precise approach shots.
Who should win? – Brooks Koepka – 11/1*
Koepka has played very well on this golf course, is in great form and rises to occasion in big tournaments.
Who could win? – Justin Thomas 16/1, Collin Morikawa 12/1, Daniel Berger 22/1, Louis Oosthuizen 27/1
JT won last year and has had good results on this course in the past. He is still a bit off form and just played in Tokyo but he has all the tools. Morikawa also played in Tokyo and just missed out on a Bronze medal. He’s the best iron player in the game at the moment and this is a second-shot golf course. Daniel Berger has won twice on this course and is having a good year – a great pick to win at 22/1. Louis Oosthuizen has a chance, just because of the year he is having and the confidence he has to have built – he’s due.
Top-5 Picks – Matthew Fitzpatrick 34/1, Webb Simpson 34/1, Corey Conners 45/1, Phil Mickelson 80/1

Who will win? – Jordan Spieth 16/1
Spieth doesn’t have much of a record on this course, but he didn’t travel to Tokyo and he’s playing almost as well as he did in 2015…and he’s Jordan Spieth!
