Best bets for Memphis PGA event

The PGA Tour took a week off for the Olympic Games but returns to Memphis for the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational with an elite field of just 66 players. World No. 1 Jon Rahm was forced to withdraw from the Olympics last week after testing positive for COVID-19 and is not in this week's field. However, 48 of the OWGR Top 50 players will be, as Marc Cohn sang, "Walking In Memphis."
Brooks Koepka (12-1) won the first WGC event in Memphis in 2019. He has finished sixth or better in six of his last eight starts. Collin Morikawa (14-1) was part of a seven-way playoff and just missed out on a bronze medal. One man who did not miss out on a medal was Xander Schauffele (14-1), who held on to win Olympic gold and now is in another short field in a no-cut event in which he has thrived during his young career. Jordan Spieth (16-1) makes his first start since finishing runner-up at the British Open three weeks ago.
Justin Thomas (18-1) is the defending champion of this event. Dustin Johnson (20-1) is a two-time winner at TPC Southwind when it hosted the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Rory McIlroy (20-1) was also in that massive playoff for the bronze in Tokyo last week but came up short. Daniel Berger (22-1), like Dustin Johnson, is also a two-time winner on this course. 
Louis Oosthuizen (22-1) responded nicely to another close call disappointment in a major championship with a T-2 at the 3M Open two weeks ago as he still seeks his first career victory on American soil.
