By: Kevin Cunningham June 2, 2021 Jordan Spieth is back in action at the Memorial after a near-win last weekend,
The calendar has turned to June, and the best players in the men’s game have traveled to Ohio for one of the best tournaments of the year: the 2021 Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village. Here’s everything you need to know to watch the tournament.
Memorial Tournament preview
The Memorial is always one of the most exciting weeks on the PGA Tour, but this year it’s even more special. That’s because tournament host, club founder and course architect Jack Nicklaus just finished a major renovation of Murifield Village since the last playing of the event.
By: James Colgan
But it’s also special because of the stellar field that has committed to play Jack’s event. Jordan Spieth, fresh off a near-miss at the Charles Schwab Challenge, will be there attempting to capture his second win of the season.
Rory McIlroy, who like Spieth claimed a comeback victory in 2021 after years of struggles on the course, is also in the field, ready to recover from a disappointing performance at the PGA Championship.
But Jordan, Rory, and the rest of the field will have to get past defending champion and World No. 3 Jon Rahm if they want to shake Nicklaus’ hand as the victor on Sunday night.
