Each year, the Memorial Tournament is recognized as one of the more prestigious PGA Tour events, attracting massive spectators and some of the best golfers in the world. This year, that’s pretty accurate.
The top five players on the official World Golf Ranking, consisting of Scottie Scheffler, Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Patrick Cantlay, and Xander Schauffele will all be on the course.
The PGA Tour released the full course via Twitter Friday.
Some of the other big names competing in Dublin, Ohio next week include defending champion Billy Horschel, Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Collin Morikawa, Jordan Spieth and Viktor Hovland.
Hovland has been playing as well as almost anyone on tour lately. After his T2 in the PGA Championship, he once again found himself in contention going into the weekend at the Charles Schwab Challenge.
Meanwhile, Spieth, who missed Colonial, is nursing a wrist injury. He fought his way through the PGA Championship, but stated that wrists were not the reason. Nevertheless, one has to wonder if he is almost completely healthy given his lackluster play the past few weeks.
He initially injured his wrist and withdrew from AT&T Byron Nelson a few weeks ago.
Of course, there are sure to be some of the best golfers in the world who won’t be attending; especially Golf LIV tour members. Brooks Koepka earned his third PGA Championship win and fifth major overall.
Bryson DeChambeau finished in the top five and is elite in his own right.
LIV Golf’s split with the PGA Tour has come to a head this week. Golf Channel analysts Brandel Chamblee and Phil Mickelson had been trading barbs on Twitter, until Lefty was finally banned. Only time will tell how this division of golf will play out.
But that won’t stop golf fans from having fun enjoying another thrilling Memorial Tournament.
