FedEx St Jude Classic: Berger hungry for further success

FedEx St Jude Classic: Berger hungry for further success

After Kyle Stanley came agonisingly close to giving us a 90/1 winner in the Memorial Tournament, the PGA Tour make its regular trip to Memphis for the FedEx St Jude Classic.

Being the final event before the US Open means just four of the world’s top 20 have made the journey to TPC Southwind, a par 70 measuring 7,224 yards which features small greens and water in play on 10 holes.

Daniel Berger is seeking a third straight win and odds of 25/1 make the world number 41 a straightforward first selection in the each-way market.

Berger has yet to record a top-10 finish this season, but has finished 11th twice and missed just one cut.

His form is similar to last year when he finished 65th in the Players Championship and took three weeks off before winning in Memphis. This year he was 57th at Sawgrass before again taking a break.

Our next selection is also something of a course specialist, namely 2014 champion Ben Crane.

Crane has earned more money at TPC Southwind than any other venue on the PGA Tour, with his victory complemented by four other top 20s, including a tie for 10th last year.

Recent form figures read 11-53-8 and Crane can be backed in the each-way market at 80/1.

And finally, we’ll take a small, speculative punt on three-time major winner Padraig Harrington, whose poor form this season means he is available each-way at 200/1.

Harrington was fourth in the Turkish Airlines Open at the end of last year but has struggled so far in 2018, with last week’s tie for 36th in Italy representing his best result.

The 46-year-old is a notorious tinkerer who is capable of finding form out of nowhere and two previous top 10s at Southwind gives us hope he can do so again this week.
