We can’t stress enough the importance of having more than 1 book to bet through. You MUST shop the lines! We highlight Bookmaker & MyBookie because they’ve reached out to us, they’ve been willing to listen to our feedback on their golf offerings, we’ve successfully made deposits and withdrawals, and they have served our listeners well thus far.
Both are offering bonuses to our listeners with PROMO CODE: “tourjunkies” with a minimum deposit of $50. Click the links below to sign up.
Weather & Tee Time Wave Thoughts
We get all of our weather data from weather.gov. We always factor temperature in our FRL bets since the ball doesn’t fly as far in colder conditions. And of course, we always factor rain and wind in FRL.
*Weather thoughts updated on Wednesday afternoons*
Marc Leishman (33/1 on MyBookie vs 28/1 on Bookmaker)
Leish had a close call at the Byron but ran into the rookie buzzsaw in Aaron Wise. The form is back. He’s gained 31 strokes total in the last 5 years here. He’s 14th in SG: Approach, 28th in SG: Around the Green, and 36th in SG: Putting on Bentgrass over the last 12 rounds. He’s a proven winner on the PGA Tour. Bet him!
Matt Kuchar (45/1 on MyBookie vs 38/1 on Bookmaker)
He’s the ultimate course horse this week having gained 48 strokes total at Muirfield over the last 5 years. The form has been a little suspect of late, but he loves this track. It suits his short-knocking, accurate, cut hitting self. He’s won here before. He can do it again.
Chesson Hadley (85/1 on Bookmaker vs 60/1 on MyBookie)
Chesson hasn’t finished less than T20 on the PGA Tour since the Arnold Palmer back in March! He’s going to break out with that first PGA Tour victory sooner rather than later, and Memorial has been known to offer up breakout victories. He’s 11th in SG: Approach over the last 12 rounds. If he can keep it in the fairway, those irons will prove deadly.
Luke List (120/1 on Bookmaker vs 100/1 on MyBookie)
Luke’s irons have cooled off a bit, but he’s 2nd on the PGA Tour in SG: OTT and 20th in SG: ATG in the last 12 rounds. His T3 at Harbour Town proves that Luke can dial it back and play courses like Muirfield, and Jack’s Place gives a better edge to bombers than Harbour Town. For a player we were all just waiting to win for the first time a little over a month ago, we like the odds at 120/1.
