The Range: WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational



This week we’ll look back at The Open Championship and get you ready for the upcoming WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational right here on Win Daily Sports.

Recap of The Open Championship

Congratulations to Shane Lowry on winning the British Open. A piece of redemption after the 2016 U.S. Open. If you don’t remember. Lowry had a four shot lead heading into Sunday, only to see it get squandered away. Lowry finished second to Dustin Johnson that year. In the Open Championship though, Lowry sealed the deal and walked away holding the Claret Jug.

The Insight Sheet took a beating this week. Though the model did have Lowry in the pool, I did not. Not only did we miss the winner, all of our safe bets went to the wayside. McIlroy was the big one that screwed up our plans as I had him everywhere outside of a few lineups. He played so well on Friday shooting six under but unfortunately it was too little too late.

If you were one of the 96 percent who missed a six of six, don’t worry this is your week. WGC-FedEX St. Jude Invitational is a no cut event.

Course Fit

The WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational is held at the TPC Southwind course in Memphis, Tennessee. While I don’t expect the wind and course to play as hard as the British Open, this week will not be a birdie fest.

With this being a WGC event, only 64 golfers are in the tournament. 46 of the Top 50 world ranked players are here but that might change with a withdraw or two. For DFS sites, with the small field, expect many golfers to be lower in price than normal.

Top 10 in Scoring for Hard to Hit Fairways

TPC Southwind is expected to play tough, with it being difficult to score and hitting fairways. With the charts above, you’ll see some similar names. Outside of Koepka, Fleetwood and Simpson, most of the top players appear in both. Not only will finding the winner be key, avoiding the big name(s) that fall apart will be just as crucial.

Player Fit – Back End

Here is the scorecard for TPC Southwind and how each hole plays to par.

While there is seven Par 4 holes that range from 450 – 500 yards, the birdies are found between 400 – 450 yards. For this reason I’ll look at Par 4 Scoring overall. The two Par 5s play between 500 – 550 yards. I will add those specific yardages to the model as well.

There are several blow up holes with all the obstacles in the way this week. Water comes into play frequently and if that wasn’t enough, bunkers and tree lines will hinder every golfer at some point. For that reason I’ll be including bogey avoidance. Last but not least will be opportunities gained.

Final Recap

This week we won’t see high scores but it also will not be as tough as The Open Championship. There will be plenty of big numbers in the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational despite the select group teeing it up Thursday. Should make for an exciting tournament.
