Favourite

Jordan Spieth 7/1

T19 last year is Jordan’s best of his two visits to Muirfield but with wins at the Valspar and Masters and seconds in Houston, San Antonio and at Colonial he’s always going to be favourite in a non Rory field.  T30 last week.

Doc’s Top 5 To Watch


Justin Rose 20/1

A poor showing at Wentworth and missed cut at The Players have Justin down at 20/1 but I think there is plenty of meat on the bone to back him at those odds.  That win in New Orleans and T2 at The Masters was not all that long ago and Rose has five top 10’s from 10 starts at Muirfield including a win in 2010.

Bill Haas  33/1

For me a great ball striker on a course that really needs it.  Bill didn’t have a great tournament last time out at Quail Hollow but he has been in the top-6 in the Greens In Regulation stats in three of his last four starts which speaks volumes.  Also has the propensity to front up in the bigger events as evidenced by a T4 at The Players, T12 at the Masters and T7 at the WGC Cadillac.  Bill has done well here the last two years (T8 in 2014, T4 in 2013) and I expect another big week.

Kevin Na 35/1

Still downright painful to watch but having an amazing season.  Kevin’s seven consecutive top 20 finishes have gone pretty much under the radar given his lack of popularity but I’ve certainly being tracking it.  Had a miserable record here and missed the 2013 staging but came back last year and finished solo second, despite being a massive 5 over for the par-3’s.  Playing great golf now, I think he’s a good each way bet.

Matt Kuchar 25/1

Ordinarily Kuch would be the first name on your teamsheet for The Memorial  but this season has been a grind so far.  There were some good signs last week however including a third round of 64 and finishing in the top 10 in the GIR stats for the first time in 12 weeks.  From his nine Memorial starts, Kuchar has made eight cuts, been in the top 10 five times and won in 2013.  Bit of a horse for the course so!

Chris Kirk 25/1

T4 here in 2014 and did it completely differently  to everyone else.  While the others relied on their irons, Kirk just holed everything he looked at.  He did the same at the Crowne Plaza Invitational a few weeks ago and if that putter is still hot, could be up there again!

Long Odds Glory Shot

Billy Horschel 50/1


Saw some really encouraging signs from Billy’s T13 at The Players where he ended the week T4 in driving accuracy and T10 in greens in regulation.  That was his best showing since a solo third at the Valero Texas Open.  Third appearance in Dublin Ohio with a best of T15 last year.
