Last Week, and Preview of this week.
Last week in this writeup we gave you Collin Morikawa who finished T14, Charley Hoffman who finished 3rd, an Vincent Whaley who was pretty much a free square that some how did not end up being chalk.
This week we have the Memorial Tournament which is being played at Muirfield Village Golf Club. Two things two note is course history. Last year we saw both the Memorial Tournament and the Workday played at this course in back to back weeks. This course also recently did a course renovation. Personally I really like that we had two tournaments back to back for course history purposes this week, but there will be a few names that had a top 20 or so finish, and then missed the cut the next week.
For the renovation I really am not really factoring it in too much. This is due to two main reasons. The first being that the key stats that we have to go off do not suggest one certain style of play having a specific advantage. (Maybe after this year their will be). So with the key stats that we are looking at we are basically just looking at who is playing good golf. The second reason being is that the renovation did not change the identity of the course rather it just add a little bit of length, and sort of just freshened up the course. The biggest difference that I believe we will see is that players that have good course history, but are in bad form probably will not be able to "turn it up" for the week and make the cut.

TOP PLAYS THIS WEEK
Corey Conners ($9,300): When it comes to a play like Conners where we have been jamming them in, and they are still a stand out play I will continue to roster them until they burn me. Conners has made 3 straight cuts at this event having better finishes in each start. He ranks top 10 in RF, and ST. He is basically a cheaper version of Hovland and Morikawa this week.
Joaquin Niemann ($8,900): A saving grace of Niemann not finishing out well last week is that we get him at a cheaper price point. Niemann has made 3 of 4 cuts at this course will all of those made cuts being top 31 or better finishes. He has made 13 straight cuts in a row, and he is a top 7 stat fit. Like Conners I will continue to roster Niemann until he is either way to over priced or until he lets me down.
Kevin Streelman ($7,500): My personal make or break point is going to be Kevin Streelman. He is the correct play on paper that is for sure. He ranks 31 or better in RF, ST, and CH. Thus ranking top 12 overall in the model. Streelman has finished 54th, 7th, 4th, and 44th at this course. Most recently on tour he has finished 20th, 8th, and 26th. He could be a dark horse to win this week. Streelman is typically a guy that will grind out a made cut as well.
Troy Merritt ($6,900): Merritt at this price is still very appealing a little bit more this week compared to the last few as he has good course history. He has a missed cut, and then a 22nd, and a 17th place finish. Merritt is notably from the Midwest as well. He is sort of consistently been a guy that can give you a top 10 random finish or a missed cut, really nothing in between. But recently he has 3 top 10 finishes in his last 4 events. If he continues to strike the ball well he could be in the winning lineup this week.
