In-profit Dan Geraghty attempts to build his very positive P&L with this quartet of three-ball bets on day one at The Memorial Tournament on the PGA Tour...
"KJ Choi'soutsider price stands out as too big in a tightly knit three-ball with Rory Sabbatini and Robert Streb."
In recent months Brooks Koepka has found himself in big name three-balls, alongside such luminaries as Jordan Spieth, Patrick Reed and Rickie Fowler. With no disrespect to his partners this week, Nick Taylor and Scott Brown, the galleries will no doubt be smaller than Koepka is used to. On a long course that promises to suit, back the big-hitting American to outscore messrs Taylor and Brown and show his lofty reputation is deserved.
Bill Haas has been in the top 10 each of the last two years at the Memorial, he has the experience, length and accuracy to compete with the star names (Jordan Spieth and Justin Rose) in his three-ball and outsider quotes of 3.711/4 about him coming out on top look to have done him a disservice.
Despite already having five professional victories to his name, Russell Henley has developed a reputation as one of the most underrated golfers on the PGA tour, largely because of his inconsistency. The young American hit the top 25 only five times in his debut PGA tour season in 2013; however, Henley has been in the top 25 on seven occasions already this season and missed only one cut in his last 19 starts. Henley was sixth at the Memorial on his event debut in 2013 and looks a solid bet to outscore Seung-Yul Noh and Scott Stallings in round one.
KJ Choi's stroke average of 71.40 around Muirfield village is among the best on offer in this week's field and the South Korean's form of late has been solid if not spectacular. More importantly for us, his outsider price stands out as too big in a tightly knit three-ball with Rory Sabbatini and Robert Streb.
