2023 Memorial Tournament Highlights

While no one doubted his talent and he has been highly ranked for most of his professional career, Viktor Hovland had never won a PGA event on US soil.  On Sunday at the Memorial, that all changed when Hovland birdied 17 and watched Denny McCarthy bogey the 18th. On the first playoff hole, Hovland parred the hole and win his 4th PGA event and moved to #5 in the world rankings. 

McCarthy finished a hard luck 2nd and Scottie Scheffler shot the best round of the day to move up 28 spots and finish 3rd.

There is a group of players at 12/1 that includes Sam Burns, Cameron Young, and Matt Fitzpatrick

The course this week is fairly short by PGA standards and we think it will favor golfers that can chip & putt…… that is why our pick is Justin Rose at 18/1
