Odds To Win The Memorial 2011

For years, Jack Nicklaus’ Memorial has attracted the biggest names in golf, and this year is no exception. The oddsmakers’ favorite is justly Luke Donald, newly minted World Number One, at 9/1. Mickelson is close behind, at 12/1. I find that curious. Phil hasn’t had a particularly great year, and has never won at the Memorial. It must be more out of the habit of the bettors than logic.

The next few make rather more sense: Matt Kuchar and Nick Watney at 18/1; Rory McIlroy, Hunter Mahan and Steve Stricker at 22/1; KJ Choi and Dustin Johnson at 25/1; Rickie Fowler, Stewart Cink, Bubba Watson, Bo Van Pelt and Jim Furyk at 33/1. Justin Rose, the reigning champion is in at 33/1.

Rose wouldn’t be a bad choice for a repeat. He’s made 11 of 12 cuts thsi year, and has three top ten finishes; eight in the top 25. He also fits my paradigm about the middle of the pack being the best bets for the winners.
