2014 Memorial Tournament Discussion Thread

105 posts in this topic

This week marks the 29th event of the 2013-14 PGA Tour season, as the Tour heads to Jack's Place for the Memorial Tournament. A field of 120 players will tee it up this week at Muirfield Village Golf Club, where several of the game's best will look to pick up some momentum with the U.S. Open on the horizon.

Fresh off their wins on opposite sides of the globe, Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy will play together for the first two rounds of the Memorial Tournament .

Scott won at Colonial in his first start as the top-ranked player in the world, while McIlroy rallied from a seven-shot deficit to claim the BMW PGA Championship in England. They'll tee off at 1:16 p.m. ET Thursday alongside Jason Day , who is making his return to competition after injuring his left thumb. Day won the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship in February but has made only one start since then, tying for 20th at the Masters.

Matt Kuchar will begin defense of his title alongside two former Memorial winners in Justin Rose and Steve Stricker . Rose, making his final start before the U.S. Open, won at Muirfield Village in 2010, while Stricker captured the title in 2011. The trio will tee off at 8:26 a.m. ET in the opening round.

Still in search of his first top-10 finish on the PGA Tour this season, Phil Mickelson will play the first two rounds with Jordan Spieth - who sits one spot ahead of him in the world rankings - and Bill Haas . Here are some of the groups to keep an eye on early in the week in Columbus:

Nice pics and videos @CarlSpackler and @golfcarte ! Thanks for posting those.

Apparently this is one of the best conditioned courses on tour...according to Keegan Bradley...

I would agree. I swear they have a crew working overnight to comb every blade of grass straight. Jack is a true gentleman and does everything top notch. When wearing our volunteer shirts, we are representing the tournament and are not allowed to drink or use foul language, etc. I feel honored to represent this event and hope to do it for many years to come. ...or at least until I move south to escape cold Ohio winters. ;-)

Here is a panoramic of #9 that I tried to post yesterday. I had to chop it a bit to get it under the file size limit.

I caught Stuey swinging on #9. It was fun to watch the pros pop an easy 3w or long iron into the fairway then an iron into the green while a majority of the amateurs took 2-3 shots to put it in the water. I love the sound of the ball off the face of a pros club.

Seems like it's aggravated. Appears to be more of an issue when swinging the driver, quite a grimacing reaction from him
