The 36th Memorial Tournament will be played this week at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. The course and the tournament are the realization of Jack Nicklaus’ dream of a challenging championship golf course and a PGA Tour event for the Columbus area.
It annually has one of the strongest fields of any non-major golf tournament, and this year is no exception.
Seven of the top 10 on the Official World Golf Ranking—including No. 1 Luke Donald and No. 2 Rory McIlroy—will tee up on Thursday. Luke is coming off of a win at the European Tour’s BMW Championship, and Rory has missed his last two cuts.
