The PGA Tour is set to host its first World Golf Championships event since restarting the 2019-2020 season. The Tour is headed to Memphis for the St. Jude Invitational, one of four WGC events on the calendar. The tournament tees off bright and early this coming Thursday at TPC Southwind.

Jon Rahm is the favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, sitting at +850. He did not play last week in the 3M Open, but the week prior won the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield. Last year, he finished 7th at the St. Jude Invitational. He topped the leaderboard with a first round 62, but couldn’t break out any of the final three days.

Defending champion Brooks Koepka is down at +3650 for the tournament, tied for 17th on the odds list. He finished 30th the year prior. He’s stumbled a bit since the Tour restart. He missed the cut last week at the 3M Open, finished tied for 62nd the week prior at the Memorial Tournament, and missed the cut at the Workday Charity Open. He finished 7th at the RBC Heritage and tied for 32nd at the Charles Schwab Challenge. He had to withdraw from the Travelers Championship after his caddie tested positive for Covid-19.
