All the picks and analysis you need for the DraftKings PGA: 2020 Memorial
This week, the PGA tour moves from Muirfield to Muirfield for The Memorial Tournament. Muirfield Village Golf Club plays host to the 2020 Memorial. Muirfield Village is the same golf course we saw last week, but will play different. Traditionally it is a challenging tract. It boasts thick rough, undulation, and tiny fast greens. The course will play close to 7400 yards, but feels shorter than that. Short hitters seemed to fare just as well as long driver’s do at this tract. The average winning score at Muirfield over the past 8 years is around 14-under.
Patrick Cantlay shot a final round 8-under to win the 2019 Memorial at 19 under. Bryson DeChambeau shot a final round 71 to win the 2018 edition over Beyong Hun An and Kyle Stanley. Jason Dufner (13 under) outlasted Ricky Fowler to win the 2017 Memorial. Tiger returns this week, to a tournament that he has won 5 times before. His most recent victory was in 2012.
The keys to this course are to keep the ball on the Fairway and hit your approaches close. The greens will be extremely fast and undulating.
The Bent grass is pure, and may remind some of Augusta. Look for an excellent ball striker to come out on top this week.
