2018 FedEx St. Jude Classic PGA OAD Picks
We haven’t had a playoff in a while, but we were lucky enough to have a 3-man playoff to wrap up the Memorial. Bryson DeChambeau took it down for a very impressive PGA Tour win. Kevin and Rob both had Matt Kuchar last week and made the most money in the group. Bubba had an ok week with Grillo while Jesse had a missed cut with Schwartzel. Jesse still has the lead but Kevin is moving on him quickly. The tour heads to Memphis this week for the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Some big names are here, while some rest up for the US Open next week, so let’s see who the guys like with the FedEx St. Jude Classic PGA OAD Picks.
|Last Week’s Earnings||$139,018||$139,018||$0||$76,985|
|Last Week’s Player||Matt Kuchar||Matt Kuchar||Charl Schwartzel||Emiliano Grillo|
|This Week’s Pick||Grayson Murray||Joaquin Niemann||Phil Mickelson||Kevin Chappell|
Jesse- Two straight missed cuts has me looking in the rear view at Kevin and Bubba closing in quick on my lead. Also losing all the ground in the big OAD pools out there. This week I’m going Phil Mickelson. His course history is incredible and as most of you know he is playing his best golf of the last couple years now.
Kevin- Grayson Murray is my pick this week. Kuchar has a nice week at Memorial and helps me keep with only 3 MC on the year. I looked at An, Billy Ho(but already used), Koepka, Uihlein, but settled on a guy I think will only be owned by a handful. Ship it in! Grayson for the WIN!!!
Bubba- Grillo got through to the weekend and had a good week, but I need big week’s to take down Jesse. I really like Luke List this week as well as Phil, but I’ve already used both of those golfers.This week I’ll take one of the better ball strikers on tour of late and that will hopefully be a major factor in his success this week as you need to be accurate and have a good approach game. This golfer won’t likely be used by many as he’s coming in with back to back missed cuts and only 1 made cut in his last 5 tournaments. He’s 2 for 2 on cuts made here including a T4 last season. This week I’ll be going with good ole Chappy, Kevin Chappell.
Rob- Joaquin Niemann – We’re going to ride the young buck after back-to-back high finishes. In a less than stellar field after withdrawals, Niemann has shown he can hang with the big guns on tour. He’s gained strokes off the tee and via approach in every appearance this year, yet lacking in the around the green department. However, with less emphasis on this, Niemann ranks eighth in bogey avoidance this week, sixth with the withdrawals taken into account. He ranks 11th in birdie or better percentage in his last 12 rounds and shown he can flat out go low. He’s yet to be exempt for the U.S. Open so you know next week can’t be on his mind until this week ends in a win.
