The 2016 Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide will be played at Muirfield Village Golf Club a.k.a. “Jack’s Place,” in Dublin, Ohio. The course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, will play as a par-72 measuring 7,392 yards for the event.

The field this week is headlined by all five of the top-five players in the Official World Golf Rankings, which consists of Jason Day (No. 1), Jordan Spieth (No. 2), Rory McIlroy (No. 3), Bubba Watson (No. 4) and Rickie Fowler (No. 5).

Last year, David Lingmerth defeated Justin Rose on the third playoff hole to capture his first PGA Tour victory.

I hope to have the time to post some pictures later tonight.

I come mostly these days to hang out with a few instructor buddies, but I take a few pictures while I'm here, too. :-)

YEAH!!!! Can't wait for the next two weeks. This is gonna be hot!

I don't know if anyone viewed the broadcast "Nicklaus' Masterpiece" that aired before the final round of the Colonial, or whatever the hell it's called now. I learned something I did not know. Jason Day is a resident of Muirfield Village and a member of the club. He's playing his home course. Place your bets!

Day is favourite at 6/1,Speef and Mcilroy at 7/1, Kuchar and Matsuyama 14/1.

Maybe some decent outside bets,Justin Thomas 50/1,Tony Finau 80/1,last years winner David Lingmerth 80/1,Russel Knox 60/1

I'd love to play this course just to say I've played at Jack's place.

Anyone know how much for a round there??

Why is Day the favorite?  I know it's his home course but in 8 starts there he hasn't finished in the top 10.

It sounds like he has a different game plan; maybe that will be the difference this year.

Doesn't he have 7 wins in 17 starts? He'd probably be the favorite no matter where the tournament is.

Day coming off a win.
Spieth coming off a win.
McIlory coming off a win.

So that means a first time PGA winner will take this thing.
