FedEx St. Jude Championship Dark Horse Picks 2022

FedEx St. Jude Championship Dark Horses 2022
1. Sungjae Im (+2900)
Off a pair of runner-up finishes in his last two starts, Sungjae Im has found his groove and made significant improvement in putting the last two events. His iron play and approach game have been solid to support his superior tee-to-green stats going back to April - outside of the events in Scotland last month. Im did finish T-16 at TPC Southwind last year for the WGC event in August and had a round of 65 mixed in. He's playing better now and can improve his standing.
2. Billy Horschel (+4200)
Horschel ranks top-5 in this field in Strokes Gained: Total at TPC Southwind. He's played 36 rounds at the course, and 35-year-old 7-time Tour winner ranks top-12 in all key strokes gained stats at the course other than approach (22). Horschel won the Memorial in June, and he's finished T-3 and T-21 in two of his last four events at this course. Add in his strong accuracy from the tee and coming off a week where he was one of the top par-4 performers at the Wyndham, and Horschel is a definite dark horse to watch and wager on this week to start the FedEx Cup Playoffs.
3. Sebastian Munoz (+14000)
Munoz missed the cut at the Wyndham last week, and he's been off his game since a T-14 finish at the U.S. Open. But his tee-to-green games stats remain solid, along with his approach play. Considering he finished T-21 and T-18 the last two years in events at TPC Southwind, there is value on Munoz to win and bets to be made in the top-20 market or better as well. The 29-year-old Columbian enters the playoffs top-50 in the FedEx Cup Standings.
