There is a massive tournament this week as The Memorial (Jack’s tourney) gets underway Thursday at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Ohio.  Remember that bets can be placed in between rounds with updated payout odds.

Keith Stewart & Chantel McCabe's Midrange Picks for The Memorial

"Get Matsuyama +5000 before he becomes a big favorite for the US Open" - Keith | Tee to Green

Matsuyama is a Japanese professional golfer who plays on the PGA Tour and he is the first-ever Japanese professional golfer to win a men's major golf championship – the 2021 Masters Tournament.

You'll likely have to wait until after Thursday's play to get in on Matsuyama.  Obviously if he doesn't look good after the first round, you might want to wait for the next tournament.  These videos were posted just after the first round of play got underway and lines pulled.

The PGATour preview of Matsuyama offered this:

Matsuyama arrives in good form to a course where he won in 2014. In his last five stroke-play starts, Matsuyama hasn't finished worse than 29th. Over the last 36 rounds, Matsuyama ranks 19th in this field for SG: Approach, 11th for SG: Around the Green, and fourth in Bogey Avoidance. He is 58th on TOUR in Birdie Average. I used TPC Sawgrass as a correlated course in my handicap this week and we remember in March of 2020 when the golfing world came to a stop, cancelling The PLAYERS after Round 1 due to COVID. Matsuyama was your First Round Leader that year after firing an opening round 63, tying a course record. Over the last 12 rounds, Matsuyama is fourth in this field for SG: Around the Green on courses with long rough and firm and fast greens.
