Jason Kokrak delivered a 55-1 winner for this column last week at the Charles Schwab Challenge, winning by two strokes over 2016 champion Jordan Spieth. Kokrak led the field for SG: Off-The-Tee and was second for SG: Tee-To-Green, eighth for SG: Approach, plus seventh for SG: Putting. It was his second PGA Tour win in the 2020-21 season (2020 CJ Cup at Shadow Creek) but will take this week off. Spieth (14-1) is the second choice on the odds board and is an annual participant in the Memorial Tournament hosted by Jack Nicklaus. Spieth has two career top-10 finishes (third, 2015; seventh, 2019).
The favorite this week at the Memorial Tournament is the man who won last year at Jack's place, Jon Rahm. The World No. 3 player has his price cut in half to 10-1 this year. A win in Nicklaus's event still eludes Rory McIlroy (14-1), but he does have three top-10s here in eight appearances. World No. 4 Bryson DeChambeau (14-1) won in 2018 but has never really featured here in any other appearance and has been too busy beefing with Brooks Koepka lately.
