See below as we run through the tournament for you including facts, odds and picks from our own golfing professional Cliff Jackson and 32Red’s Jack Milner.
- Muirfield Village Golf Club, Ohio
- First staged in 1976
- Current champion is Bryson DeChambeau
OVERVIEW: The Jack Nicklaus founded tournament, played on a Jack Nicklaus designed course is one of the real standout events of the year. The Memorial is one of the five tournaments on the Tour granted ‘invitational’ which means it has a reduced field of 120 players – and the winner has a three-year exemption – more than normal tour events and only on par with the WGC, Tour Championship and Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The calibre of the tournament is also highlighted by the top class field, consisting of Rory McIlroy, Tiger Woods, Justin Rose, Justin Day, Rickie Fowler, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas, as well as the defending champion Bryson DeChambeau.
TOP TEN BETTING:
The pro’s point of view…
Our resident golf expert is Cliff Jackson. Cliff is a leading youth coach and PGA professional at the famed Seaton Carew Links – one of the oldest courses in the world.
The Memorial is a high class event, and there are so many top players on show it is hard to see past the top-ten or so, and for me I can see Rickie Fowler going well.
Further down I would be looking for someone like Charley Hoffman to put in a good show at quite long odds.
