Bet the Memorial Tournament risk-free up to $1,000.

The PGA TOUR season rolls on between the PGA Championship and the U.S. Open, making stops at some of the marquee courses and events on the annual calendar.

Many of the world’s best will shift from playing at Colonial last weekend to the Memorial Tournament this weekend at Muirfield Village.

This event typically attracts a strong field, thanks to a combination of the course, the spot on the calendar and Jack Nicklaus playing host in his hometown of Columbus.

Despite the long list of top players in the field, there’s plenty of room for a dark horse to emerge as a threat to win this weekend.

These five names below jump off the board as potential plays with long odds.

Billy Horschel +6600 (BetMGM)

I’m not exactly sticking my neck out here to call the 17th-ranked golfer in the world a long shot, yet I couldn’t ignore Horschel at these odds.

DraftKings has him listed all the way down at +4000, radically different than this price at BetMGM.

There’s no reason to think Horschel can’t be a factor at Muirfield. His missed cut at Colonial last week was his first of the season. Now he tees it up at a golf course where he’s finished in the top 15 in three of his last four attempts.

The accuracy off the tee required by Muirfield plays into Horschel’s game. He’s gained strokes off the tee in all nine of his appearances at the Memorial in his career.

Rickie Fowler +12500 (BetMGM)

Anecdotally, it has felt like Fowler was starting to emerge from his funk in recent weeks. While he’s made cuts a little more consistently in May, he’s still not finding his way to the tops of leaderboards on Sundays. He hasn’t had a top-20 finish in 2022 and has only one top-10 in 12 months.

He has, however, made three cuts in a row and posted his only two top-25 finishes of the year within his last three tournaments.

That’s enough of an uptick to consider Fowler this week, thanks to a rich history of success at this course. In his last six starts at Muirfield Village, Fowler has two top-10s, four top-15s and only one finish outside the top-25 (a missed cut).

You don’t need to dig into Rickie’s ancient history to find success at this venue. He was T-11 at this event last season, with a Saturday 75 keeping him off the first page of the leaderboard.

Lucas Herbert +15000 (DraftKings)

Herbert has had just enough success lately — and at this golf course — to like his chances this week. He’s been a bit of boom-or-bust this season, though his booms have been notable. He has a win in Bermuda, plus four other worldwide top-20s.

Last year, he played the Memorial for the first time and finished T-18, dragging an otherwise strong week down with a Sunday 76.

Herbert has a chance to contend every week thanks to his penchant for putting. According to metrics from DataGolf, he’s been the best putter in the world over the past three months and the best putter on the PGA TOUR over the last year.

Kevin Streelman +18000 (FanDuel)

On a shorter course like Muirfield — at least relative to some of the massive tracks the TOUR visits these days — Streelman always has a chance to play his best golf. That’s especially true here in Columbus, where he’s excelled in recent seasons.

Streelman has made the cut at eight straight events at this venue, finishing in the top-20 in six of those starts.

He’s cooled off after three straight finishes in the top-25 earlier this season, but this is the type of venue where he can return to form.

Ryan Moore +50000 (DraftKings)

There’s some backstory to both these long odds and this pick. Moore has not played a competitive tournament since the Waste Management Phoenix Open back in February.

That certainly does not put him in the best position to win this weekend, especially because he needs to win this weekend.

Moore has chosen the Memorial Tournament as his return to the PGA TOUR, patiently waiting to use his last start provided by a major medical exemption.

Why choose an event with a stacked field of top players?

Because Moore has played some fantastic golf at Muirfield Village over the years. Of the players in this week’s field with at least 15 rounds played at this venue, Moore ranks ninth in True Strokes Gained per round, per DataGolf.

He’s played 15 tournaments at Muirfield and finished T-22 or better eight times, with only two missed cuts.

If he’s going to gamble on this tournament being a good one for himself, who am I to disagree? That’s especially true when he can be had for a lottery-ticket level price like this.
