The PGA Tour goes from Texas to Ohio this week for the Memorial Tournament, played at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, which is perhaps Jack Nicklaus' most famous design. The tournament was first played in 1976 and has produced a host of great champions since, including Nicklaus himself (twice), Greg Norman and Tom Watson (twice each), and Tiger Woods, who has won the event a staggering five times, the first three of which came consecutively between 1999 and 2001.
Woods will look to make it a sixth this week as he makes his first start since the PGA Championship and what will be his last before the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach. After a long layoff between the Masters and the PGA, the 15-time major winner looked a bit rusty at Bethpage Black, missing the cut with rounds of 72 and 73. Prior to that, he had not missed a cut since the previous year's U.S. Open at Shinnecock, and had finished T-20 or better in five of his six starts in 2019. It's a safe bet Woods will not only make the cut this week, but be in the mix on the weekend. He's owned this course for his entire career, though his last victory at Jack's place came in 2012.
In the first two rounds he'll play alongside Justin Rose, a winner at Muirfield Village in 2010, and Bryson DeChambeau, the defending champion. They'll go off the 10th tee on Thursday at 8:26 a.m. and off the first tee on Friday at 1:16 p.m. Other groups to watch include Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas (8:15 a.m. Thursday) and Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar and Rickie Fowler (1:16 p.m. Thursday). McIlroy is the tournament favorite at 8/1 odds, while Woods checks in as the second favorite at 12/1. Fowler, Kuchar, Rose and Patrick Cantlay are all 16/1.
The Golf Channel will carry live coverage on Thursday and Friday from 2:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. ET, as well as Saturday from 12:30 p.m. to 2:45 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 2:15 p.m. CBS will take over on Saturday beginning at 3 p.m. and Sunday beginning at 2:30 p.m.
