The Memorial Tournament 2024 Golf Odds And Picks

June tees off with the Memorial Tournament 2024 at Jack’s Place. I provide a full preview with odds, picks, insight and matchups (3-0 last two tournaments) in my PGA Tour coverage in Forbes. The 7,569 yard Par 72 at Muifield Village Golf Club will challenge a limted field of 72 top golfers (120 players last year), including 28 of the top 30 in the world rankings.

Muirfield Village Golf Club was the dream and work of Jack Nicklaus. The course was officially dedicated on Memorial Day, May 27, 1974, with an exhibition match between Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf. Nearly 50 years later, it’s one of the premier golf tournaments on the PGA Tour, and the 2024 tournament is a Signature Event with a $20 million prize pool and $4 million to the winner.

Tight lies and tight time this week, so check out the Memorial Tournament betting preview I provide for Forbes, along with more picks and information you can bet on below.
