Tony Finau Leads After Day One of The Memorial Tournament

Tony Finau hit an impressive nine birdies in his opening round at The Memorial Tournament. Six of those birdies came on the back nine and placed him as the outright leader, one shot ahead of Ryan Palmer. 

Before The Memorial Tournament, Finau was a massive +6600 to be the first-round leader, which meant a $50 wager on him doing so would have pocketed you a monster $3350. However, the opening day was another good example of why all golf bettors should use Oddschecker, as Finau was just +5500 with another US sportsbook. Placing $50 on Finau at worst odds would have cost you $500. 

Tony Finau wasn't a popular option at all with bettors to lead after the opening day, he accounted for just 0.5% of all bets in the market pre-tournament. The most popular pick with 9% of all bets was Keegan Bradley, who finished the round one over.

It was a tricky day for plenty of the pre-competition favourites. Dustin Johnson's return didn't go to plan as he finished +8 over for the round, which has seen his odds drift from +1600 to +80000. It was a similar story for Xander Schauffele who finished +6 over, he was +2800 before The Memorial Tournament but is now +50000. 

Rory McIlroy and Bryson DeChambeau were the two at the top of the market before the opening day, and they are both still in contention. McIlroy finished two under, and is now the third favorite in the betting market at +750. Big-hitting Bryson struggled to one over and can now be backed at +2000. 

Tiger Woods finished his day five shots off the lead on one under, and is +1600 to win The Memorial Tournament once again.
