St. Jude Classic Betting Notes: Will Koepka, DJ Be Looking Ahead to Shinnecock?

TPC Southwind hosts the final event before the U.S. Open, as the PGA Tour makes its annual stop in Memphis, Tennessee.

This course provides a unique challenge. With water in play on 10 holes, Southwind ranks among the leaders each year in balls that find the hazard. So with danger lurking everywhere, a premium is placed on keeping the ball in play.

We’ve historically seen winners here without much power off the tee such as Ben Crane and Fabian Gomez. But we can also get a bomber such as Dustin Johnson to come out on top when they’re willing to club down at times and keep the ball dry.

 

What stands out the most on the 7,244-yard, par-70 track is the ability to score on par-4s. Guys such as Daniel Berger and Lee Westwood fit the mold of players who rank highly in par-4 scoring but don’t really have elite distance off the tee.

Overall, it’s a difficult test, and no winner has finished better than 13-under-par since 2009.
