The 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational tees off Thursday at TPC Southwind in Memphis, and the event boasts the strongest field of the season. New world No. 1 Jon Rahm is the 11-1 favorite in the latest 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational odds at William Hill, followed closely by Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Bryson DeChambeau at 12-1. Before you make any 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational picks of your own, you NEED to check out who Sal Johnson is backing.
A media legend and consummate golf insider, Johnson has nailed the past three events at TPC Southwind. He had Brooks Koepka in his best bets last year before he won the inaugural WGC event in Memphis by three strokes. He also pegged Dustin Johnson as a top contender in the 2018 St. Jude Classic and tabbed Daniel Berger in 2017, as each won the WGC event's predecessor at Southwind for the second time.
Johnson has been locked in this season, and anyone who has followed his advice has hit BIG. He pegged Sungjae Im as a top contender before his first Tour win at the Honda Classic in March and he also touted surging Tyrrell Hatton before his breakthrough at the Arnold Palmer.
The golf expert also had a stellar 2019 season, when he featured Tiger Woods in his best bets for the Masters, and Woods walked away with his fifth green jacket. Then, Johnson promoted Koepka in his PGA Championship best bets, and Koepka made a mockery of that tournament, building a seven-shot lead entering the weekend and rolling to victory.
Johnson completely called the season-ending Tour Championship. He predicted Koepka, Rory McIlroy or Xander Schauffele would win, and those were the top three finishers. Anyone who followed Johnson's golf picks saw HUGE returns.
Now, Johnson, the first producer of "Inside the PGA Tour," a longtime ABC Sports golf producer who worked with Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer and Greg Norman, and the founder of the world's top golf stats database, has released his highly confident 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational picks, and they WILL surprise you.
We can tell you Johnson is fading DeChambeau, even though the red-hot golfer is among the top favorites at 12-1! The golf expert said the course just doesn't suit his game, so he is fading him this week.
Instead, Johnson is all over a MONSTER long shot who has a reputation for making a splash and has triple-digit odds this week! This wily veteran has always played well at TPC Southwind and could be gearing up for a stunning week! Anyone who backs this MASSIVE underdog could cash in BIG.
