Fowler fine value for Memorial glory

407

Fresh off the back of picking out a 19/1 winner at the BMW PGA Championship, world number seven Rickie Fowler has been earmarked at the exact same price to triumph at the Memorial Tournament this week.

Italian Francesco Molinari came up trumps at Wentworth last week to score at a juicy price and Fowler looks equally as tasty at those odds to go all the way in an event he has performed well in over the years.

Fowler to win – 19/1

The American finished tied-second last year, losing out to compatriot Jason Dufner by three strokes, and that was his second runners-up medal, having been pipped to the post by Justin Rose in 2010.

Fowler has been in good form this year, having recorded five top-20 finishes, and he heads into the tournament in Ohio off the back of a joint-14th finish at the Fort Worth Invitational.

With Muirfield Village Golf Club totalling just less than 7,400 yards, it presents a tough, long test to the field and Fowler, armed with a great putting game, can tame the course this year.

Tony Finau to win – 56/1

Another name that has caught the attention is that of Tony Finau. The American has three top-10 finishes this season and he is currently second on the PGA Tour’s driving distance in 2018, averaging 316.6 yards per drive.

The 28-year-old certainly has the power to handle the course and he has enjoyed positive results in previous years, having finished tied-11th in 2016 and joint-eighth a year earlier.

A good putting performance from Finau this week can put him in contention and he looks fantastic value to back each-way at 56/1.

Patrick Cantlay to win – 58/1

The third and final selection comes in the shape of another American, this time being Patrick Cantlay. The 26-year-old broke his PGA Tour duck in November last year and that momentum has been carried into 2018.

The world number 36 has recorded two top-10 finishes this season and one statistic that jumped off the page was approach shots from 250-275 yards, which he is currently first in on the American circuit.

Cantlay was 35th on his tournament debut last year, an outing that would have done him the world of good, and he looks ready to challenge for glory this time round.
