Posted by Henry Watkins on Tuesday,June 6, 2017 10:45, EST in

There is only one weekend left before the US Open, which means that the PGA’s best players have only one more tournament left to sharpen their game prior to the next major. That tournament will be the FedEx St. Jude Classic, which will be played at the TPC Southwind course in Memphis, Tennessee. It’s not going to be a galaxy of golf stars on display this coming weekend, but still a decent field, with 8 players currently in the top 30 taking part. There are some real nice prices to be had on these players, and it’s a solid opportunity to build up your bankroll before the wagering opens for the US Open next weekend. Let’s take a look at some of the players that will be on the course competing for the $1.152 million top prize. Find the latest golf betting odds here.

2017 Fedex St. Jude Classic Overview, Favorites & Odds

 

 

Rickie Fowler

The America appears to be hitting his form at just the right time, and will be looking to build on his second place finish at the Memorial last weekend. Fowler already has a win under his belt this season, the Honda Classic, and he will almost certainly be the betting odds favorite for this tournament. If he can play as well as he did over the 4 days last weekend, there is no reason why he can’t be atop the leaderboard on Sunday afternoon.

Adam Scott

We have all been sitting around waiting for Adam Scott to hit the type of form that we are used to, and this might well be the weekend where he delivers his first PGA Tour win of the season. He has saved his best performances of the year for the bigger tournaments, with two of his top 10 finishes coming at the Masters and the Players Championship. I think he will be among the leaders on the final day in Memphis.

Brooks Koepka

Koepka only has a single win in his PGA Tour career, but with this field, there is no reason why he can’t capture his second. It has been a solid enough year for the American, with a pair of second place finishes under his belt. Currently ranked #17 in the FedEx Cup standings, a solid performance here could see him climb over a few of the players who are sitting this tournament out.

Phil Mickelson

Phil Mickelson

At 46 years of age, Mickelson may now be past his prime, but he is still certainly good enough to compete with the caliber of players on display this coming weekend. Mickelson has no less than 3 top 10 finishes his season, and while he may be a longshot to win in Memphis, there is a good chance that he could land himself another top 10 spot.

Francesco Molinari

The Italian has never won a PGA Tour event, but he has been in good form this season, land in the top 10 on 4 separate occasions. His best performance of the season came at the Players Championship, where he finished 6th against much better golfers than he will be facing this weekend. I think Molinari could be a solid dark horse pick.
