The Memorial Tournament: Previewing The Action

The Memorial Tournament is now the tournament before the US Open. Now that the PGA Tour has changed the schedule. The tournament is nicknamed Jack Nicklaus tournament. The tournament started in 1976. It is played at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. Dublin is a suburb of Columbus, Ohio and Nicklaus attended nearby Ohio State University. Here is a preview of this week’s Memorial Tournament.

Like most golf tournaments like this one, there is a pro-am before the real tournament begins. This gives amateur golfers a chance to tee it up with the pros. I myself had an opportunity to play in a pro-am they are a blast. How cool would it be to tee it with Tiger Woods, Jack Nicklaus and many more? If given the chance just do it. This also gives the pros a chance to work out kinks and just have fun before the tournament starts.

One of the rising stars won the tournament in 2018. Bryson DeChambeau is one of the stars making an impact on tour. DeChambeau is an absolute perfectness. He studies everything when it comes to his game. This is a star-studded field like it always is with players like Tiger Woods, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and many more descending to Muirfield Village.

At the end of the tournament, the winner walks over and shakes the hand of Jack Nicklaus. This also takes place at Bay Hill when Arnold Palmer was alive. This tournament should a good one is preparation for next week’s US Open. Pebble Beach will be ready for the top players. Some players have thought of protesting the US Open because of how hard the courses are set up and the conditions they are in. Either way, this week should be exciting and having Tiger in the field always brings an extra level of excitement to the golf coverage and competition.
