The Memorial Tournament – June 2-5, 2016 – Muirfield Village GC – Dublin, Ohio
I think I remember more about Tiger’s 85 in the 3rd round last year than I do Lingmerth beating Rose in a playoff
2015 – Winner David Lingmerth -15 in 3-hole playoff over Justin Rose
2015 Cut – a score of -1 was needed to make the cut, 71 players made the cut last year
Only 120 in the field this week with the usual 70 & ties making the cut so a higher percentage of field makes the cut.
Last year quite a few of the regular cut makers on tour like Jason Day, Rickie Fowler, Danny Lee, Justin Thomas, Gary Woodland, Daniel Berger, Colt Knost, Daniel Summerhays and Charl Schwartzel all missed the cut.
Muirfield Village is known as a ball strikers golf course and this tournament has a bit of mini major feel to it much like the Players Champions and the L.A. Open (Riviera) where a win here is more respected than a normal non-major.
Besides hosting this event since its inception in 1976, Muirfield Village has also recently hosted the 2013 Presidents Cup.
