Rose to take Ohio spoils

The PGA Tour stops off in Ohio this week for The Memorial Tournament and 2010 champion Justin Rose looks in good shape to make it a second success at Muirfield Village.

Rose to win @ 16/1

World number three Rose broke his PGA duck at this event nine years ago and he has an evident liking for this course, having also recorded seven more top-10 finishes.

The Englishman will also have Gareth Lord back on the bag after the news confirming confirmed longtime caddie Mark Fulcher would be taking an indefinite break from the game to recover from heart surgery.

Working alongside Lord in the first three months of the season, Rose landed his 10th PGA Tour title at the Farmers Insurance Open while he also recorded top-10s at The Players Championship and WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Despite disappointing on his last two starts, the 38-year-old is still 17th in driving distance, 12th in strokes gained: putting and 11th in strokes in total.

Sabbatini – Top Finish @ 19/10

Rory Sabbatini, who changed his citizenship from South Africa to Slovakia this year, has been in terrific form over the past couple of months and he is going for a fifth straight top-20 finish.

The 43-year-old’s impressive run of form reads T10-T18-T5-T6 and he looks like he is not far away from landing his seventh PGA Tour title, having clinched the last of his six at the 2011 Honda Classic.

Sabbatini was also co-runner-up at this event in 2012, while he has made the cut nine out of 11 times, adding further strength to his claims for another good week in America.

Niemann to win @ 150/1

Looking further down the market and world number 139 Joaquin Niemann looks an attractive bet. The Chilean struggled for the first couple months of the season but he has shown glimpses of the quality he demonstrated last year.

The 20-year-old was third at the Abierto de Chile 2019 while his last outing ended up a tied-31st at the Charles Schwab Challenge, providing plenty of positives to take from the performances.

More importantly, in one of Niemann’s first tournaments as a professional, he finished tied-sixth at last year’s Memorial and a return to Muirfield Village should do him the world of good.
