This Aussie hasn’t made many starts this year, but when he does play, the results are usually there. Scott is perennially consistent, well-rested and the owner of a fine track record at Muirfield Village. Between all of those positive factors, he should be able to find success this week.

At 15th on the PGA TOUR in total strokes gained and 13th in scoring average, Scott has remained one of the best all-around players on the circuit in spite of the loss of his trusty belly putter. In fact, the 36-year-old has managed to turn that former Achilles heel into a strength, moving from 186th in strokes gained: putting in 2010 to 40th this year. That improved performance has helped him to a number of solid finishes of late, including a tie for ninth at The Masters and a tie for sixth at THE PLAYERS Championship. Scott hasn’t played the Memorial Tournament in a few years, but he found success in his last trip to Columbus, tying for fourth.

Every year, summer after summer, Scott shows up and delivers in the world’s biggest events. He’s not the most prolific winner out there, but the bet here is that Scott plays to his potential and makes a run at the trophy this week.
