The PGA Tour takes no weeks off, so there are more One and Done decisions to make. The Memorial is set to tee off from Muirfield Village, and there is a top-end field looking to impress at Jack Nicklaus’ course. With this being an elevated event, there is more than $3.5 million up for grabs for the winner this week. Let’s take a look at some of the golfers to target for the Memorial One and Done selections.
The Memorial One and Done Picks and Targets
Even with Scottie Scheffler and Jon Rahm in the field, Cantlay is sitting at just 10-1 in the outright market. This shows how well he plays at this track, with another top-5 last year and multiple wins over his Memorial career. He has not missed a cut since February, and his game looks to be in solid shape across the board. Cantlay will be one of the more obvious choices for One and Done this week for anyone who has him available. For those leading or looking for a conservative choice, he makes sense, as he should once again be in the hunt for another victory at this event.
Fowler made for an interesting contrarian PGA Championship One and Done pick, and the result was a whopping $0. Those who avoided him there may have him still available, and this could be a spot to target him. Fowler is in a strong field here, which is dangerous, but that also means most people will be looking elsewhere.
Off the disappointing missed cut at the PGA, Fowler rebounded with a sixth-place finish at the Charles Schwab. His irons have been fantastic all season, and now he comes to a course where he has had success in the past. The key is going to be whether or not he can link up the irons and putter on the same week, which is going to be the path for a massive payday. Sitting at 35-1, Fowler could easily be among the leaders come Sunday, and he is a viable against-the-grain One and Done play.
As the season progresses, a lot of this comes down to who realistically is available and who is not. Morikawa is available in some of my One and Done pools, and this is a good spot for him overall. He is already on the betting card at 22-1, and One and Done is another way to get exposure to him.
The one thing that is clear about Morikawa is that his irons will travel. He is still among the best ball strikers in the world, but quickly Morikawa is becoming one of the captains of “Team Can’t Putt.” The lack of success with the flat stick is causing a ton of middling finishes like in the past few starts. Morikawa has also had success at Muirfield Village, with a second-place finish where he gained over five strokes putting. That at least shows he has responded on these greens at times, and this is a fantastic course for his game. Morikawa is a hot putting week away from breaking his win drought.
