|Steve Hennessey||Justin Thomas|
|Christopher Powers||Brooks Koepka|
Steve Hennessey of Golf Digest thinks Justin Thomas is in for a big week, especially after coming so close to winning the Workday Charity Open in which he finished runner up. Overall during this restart, Thomas’ form has been great since the restart of the season, producing three top 10 results in four starts. On the season, Thomas has two wins and eight top 10s in 12 starts. Meanwhile, Christopher Powers believes it’s time for Brooks Koepka to break out this season. Koepka’s still looking for consistency, but given his past exploits, it’s not easy to ignore him. Koepka is +2200 to win The Memorial Tournament.

|Mike McClure||Collin Morikawa|
Life is good, at least for now, for Collin Morikawa, who is +1800 to win the 2020 The Memorial Tournament. Morikawa hit his first win of the season last week at Workday Charity Open, wherein he outclassed Justin Thomas in a playoff. Morikawa now has a couple of top 2s in his past four starts. Morikawa is third on Tour with a 74.6 eagles (holes per) average.
|Expert||Fantasy Top Pick|
|Esten McLaren||Bryson DeChambeau|
DeChambeau (+1000) is coming back on Tour after skipping the Workday Charity Open, but in his last start, the 26-year-old pro won the Rocket Mortgage Classic earlier this month. This has been an amazing season for DeChambeau, as he has finished inside the top 10 eight times in 11 starts. And by the way, DeChambeau ha won the Memorial Tournament before in 2018.

|Ryan Simpson||Rory McIlroy|
Simpson backs McIlroy (+1400) in this tournmant. He belives that the seasoned veteran will come into Muirfield Village full of energy, as he hasn’t played since a T11 at the Travelers Championship. McIlroy hasn’t won at Muirfield Village, but he has four top 10s in 28 starts there. This season, McIlroy has six top 10s and two top 3s in nine starts. Plus, this event gives him a shot at sweet revenge against Tiger Woods after losing out to him (and Peyton Manning) at The Match II.
