Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Justin Thomas wins the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational

Sometimes luck is just on your side. It hadn’t been too long since we’d seen Thomas ($10,700; 110.5 DKFP) completely collapse on a Sunday. In fact, you only have to go back a few weeks to his second-place finish at the Workday Charity Open. However, the golf gods clearly had higher goals for the 27-year-old at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Despite trailing Brooks Koepka ($9,200; 106.5 DKFP) by a stoke with four holes remaining, Thomas used a pair of miraculous scrambles on the 15th and 16th to take the lead. After Koepka then found water off the tee at 18, the tournament was settled. Thomas finished 5-under for the round and 13-under for the week. — Garion Thorne


Daniel Berger ties for second at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational

Though he didn’t win this week’s tournament in Memphis, there might not be anyone in the world playing better golf than Berger ($9,600; 91.5 DKFP). The 27-year-old tied for the second-lowest round of any player on Sunday, shooting a 5-under 65 and finishing the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational in a four-way tie for second place. More impressively, that round gives Berger five top 5 results in his past seven tournaments — a stretch that includes a win at the Charles Schwab Challenge back in June. You’d have to think if Berger hadn’t started poorly with a 1-over on Thursday he’d have been right there with Justin Thomas ($10,700; 110.5 DKFP) this afternoon. — Garion Thorne


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Brendon Todd remains in the lead but falls closer to the field

Todd ($6,600; 100.5 DKFP) has cruised throughout the tournament, but he’s going to have a sweat on Sunday. The leader after all three rounds of the St. Jude Invitational, Todd only had a one-under par round on Saturday after coming into the day 11-under par through two rounds. His lead has shrunk to just one stroke heading into the final round of the tournament. Todd (+225) is still the the favorite to win the tournament, although it’s worth noting that he was in this situation a few weeks ago and wasn’t able to hold on. — Greg Ehrenberg


Tom Lewis charges into top 10

Where was this guy the rest of the tournament? Lewis ($6,200; 71 DKFP) was lucky that the St. Jude Invitational doesn’t have a cut. Coming into today, he was three-over par. Today, it was a totally different story as Lewis shot a nine-under par 61. This was the best round of the tournament and vaulted Lewis into a tie for 10th place. If not for a bogey on 18, this could have really been a special round. With a birdie, he would have shot a 59. — Greg Ehrenberg



Round 2 Recap — Friday

Brendon Todd leads after 36 holes at WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational

If you had Todd ($6,600; 83.0 DKFP) running away with a WGC event after 36 holes, people might have called you insane two days ago. Well, it doesn’t look so crazy now. After shooting a 6-under 64 on Thursday, Todd kept the good times rolling on Friday, registering a 5-under 65. The 35-year-old is currently leading the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational by two strokes over Rickie Fowler ($8,300; 68.5 DKFP) heading into the weekend. Still, it’s not as if Todd had been playing poorly coming into this tournament, as he’s made the cut in his past three events; a stretch that includes a T11 at the Travelers Championship. — Garion Thorne


Matthew Fitzpatrick moves into contention at WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational

After shooting even par on Thursday, Fizpatrick ($9,000; 54 DKFP) charged up the leaderboard on Friday. He shot six-under par today, moving to a tie fox sixth place. Fitzpatrick is now in contention and heads into the weekend five strokes off of the lead. His 64 was tied for the best score of the day. Kevin Na ($7,500; 48 DKFP) also shot a 64 and moved into a tie for 12th. — Greg Ehrenberg

Round 1 Recap — Thursday



Brendon Todd in the chase after first round of WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational

The FedEx St. Jude Invitational is part of the World Golf Championship series, and Todd ($6,600) earned his way into the field with some stellar play this year. That continued on Thursday, as Todd shot a six-under 64, good enough for second place so far. He made seven birdies and one bogey, currently sitting at 48.5 DKFP. Todd struggled off the tee, losing 1.07 strokes, but made up for it on approach (+3.19) and on the greens (+2.84). He will certainly need to keep putting well to win the event, but can still provide fantasy players great value without winning. He was just 7.9% owned in the Drive the Green contest. — Anthony Amico


Brooks Koepka leads FedEx St. Jude Invitational after round one

In a small, but loaded field at the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational, Koepka ($9,200) showed that he is still a big-game hunter. He opened the tournament by taking a two-shot lead over the field, shooting an eight-under 62. He made nine birdies and one bogey, and currently sits at 63.5 DKFP. Koepka gained strokes all over the course, picking up 4.64 from tee to green, and another 3.06 putting. He is absolutely a favorite to take down this event. — Anthony Amico
