|Jason Sobel||Viktor Hovland|
Jason Sobel of The Action Network sees Hovland as a threat to the rest of the field this week at Muirfield Village. Hovland is 5 of 5 in his last five starts, which includes a couple of T3s in the Valspar Championship and in the Wells Fargo Championship. He also has a total of five top 3s this season. Moreover, Hovland is tops among all players this season in terms of adjusted scoring and tied for ninth for par-5 scoring. He also has six top 10s, among them was a win in the Mayakoba Golf Classic presented by UNIFIN back in December 2020.
|Expert||Fantasy golfer to watch out for|
|CBS Sports Staff||Jordan Spieth|
Although this is a fantasy pick, you could easily argue that to be a good fantasy golfer, you’d have to be a solid real-life golfer as well. For CBS, Jordan Spieth is going to make noise this week — again. The resurgent Spieth is coming off a solo second place in the Charles Schwab Challenge. That’s his fifth top 10 in his last six starts. During that stretch, he also won the Valero Texas Open and finished with a T3 in the Masters Tournament and a T9 in the AT&T Byron Nelson. Spieth has two top 10s and made seven cuts in eight career Memorial Tournament starts at Muirfield Village.
|Rob Bolton||Bryson DeChambeau|
DeChambeau gets the top ranking of Rob Bolton of PGATour.com. That’s even though DeChambeau went T55 in the AT&T Byron Nelson and just T38 in the PGA Championship. For one, he is a former champion of the Memorial Tournament, having topped the field at the Muirfield Village back in 2018’s edition of the event. DeChambeau enters the Memorial Tournament No. 1 in the TOUR in driving distance, third in eagles (per hole), seventh in birdie average, and eighth in scoring average.

|Ryan Simpson, News Editor||Charley Hoffman|
In his preview of the 2021 Memorial Tournament, TopBet News Editor Ryan Simpson revealed that he is picking Charley Hoffman to win the tournament. Here’s what Simpson had to say about Hoffman:
“Ranked 69th in the world, Hoffman is on an even nicer stretch than Conners. Hoffman has made the cut in each of his last 11 starts. He gained even more momentum ahead of the Memorial Tournament by finishing with a T3 in the Charles Schwab Challenge.”
