The Tour moves onto Memphis for the St. Jude Classic. Southwind is one of the tougher Par 70s on the Tour, and its narrow fairways and smallish greens demand precision over power. In last year's event, Dustin Johnson beat John Merrick by one stroke. Heres a look at this weeks best bets

Golfers to Watch

Brandt Snedeker (9/1): Snedeker had a chance to start early on his homecoming to Tennessee after missing the cut at the Memorial. He seems to be fully healthy again, and with his short game, hell always have a chance to contend at Southwind, especially in a weak field.

Russell Henley (30/1): Its been a year of surprise winners on the Tour, and Henley started it all off with a victory at the Sony Open back in January. A two-time winner on the Web.com Tour a year ago, he seems like a candidate to step up in Southwind. Hes gone top-6 in two of his past four starts, including a T6 at the Memorial despite a second-round 77. Henley remains one of the best on the greens, currently 10th in putting (.664 strokes gained).

Freddie Jacobson (22/1): Hes cooled off after a fast start to 2013, but Jacobson was solid at the Byron Nelson and was contending at Colonial before a Sunday collapse. In a weak field, he has a realistic shot to grab his first victory of 2013.

Dustin Johnson (15/1): The defending champ enters this week with a ton of question marks because of back and wrist injuries. Playing through pain in the early spring, he managed a string of top-15's, including a T13 at Augusta. But since the Masters, hes had to withdraw from the Players Championship and missed the cut at last weeks Memorial. It seems unlikely that hell recapture last years form, when he grabbed a tightly-contested win with a final-round 66.

Gary Woodland (50/1): Last year at Southwind, it was a big hitter taking the title here in Dustin Johnson. It could certainly be Woodland this year. Hes coming off his best week of the season, a T16 at the Memorial. His erratic putter was as good as its been in a while last week, averaging a stroke gained at Muirfield Village (hes 131st on the Tour at -.197 on the year).
