DJ, Rahm, Other Stars Set to Shine at Jack’s Place



The world’s best are in central Ohio this week to pay homage to the greatest champion the sport of golf has ever known: Jack Nicklaus. The Golden Bear’s Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide features one of the strongest fields of the year playing one of the best courses of the year. You can catch exclusive early-round coverage on PGA TOUR LIVE beginning early Thursday morning.

An annually stout field has not disappointed this week with six of the top-10 players in the world pegging it at Jack’s place. All six of those top-ranked players will be included in the  PGA TOUR LIVE coverage window over the first two days of the event. All but one player — Si Woo Kim, winner of the 2017 Players Championship — in the featured groups is in the top-50 in the Official World Golf Ranking.

The field is highlighted by World No. 1 Dustin Johnson who has made the cut in eight his nine visits to Muirfield Village, and is coming off of his best finish, a T3, last year. DJ will go out with Phil Mickelson and defending champion William McGirt on Thursday morning on PGA TOUR LIVE. They will follow the threesome of Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and last week’s winner, Kevin Kisner.

On Friday morning, the star power remains as Rickie Fowler, Hideki Matsuyama and Jon Rahm will go out first on PGA TOUR LIVE. Following them is the three ball of Muirfield member Jason Day, Adam Scott and Si Woo Kim.
