PGA Memorial Preview – 3 Players To Watch
Patrick Cantlay – Ranked 6th in the world when the PGA halted in March by the COVID-19 pandemic, Cantlay didn’t pick up his schedule when the Tour restarted last month at Colonial. He also skipped the RBC Heritage before finally returning to the tour at the Travelers Championship.
“I just wanted to see how it went, and I was just prepping to get ready to play,” he said.
And ready he was. Upon his return, Cantlay finished tied for 11th at the Travelers Championship and then after a week off closed with 7-under 65 Sunday at the Workday Charity Open setting the stage for his title defense this week at the Memorial.
Justin Thomas – We have to see how he rebounds! JT’s three shot lead vanished yesterday as he bogeyed holes 16 and 18 forcing a playoff with Collin Morikawa. Thomas would lose the Workday Charity Open with a bogey on the third playoff hole. We are looking forward to see how he rebounds this week.
Tiger Woods – Tiger is playing in this week’s Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village, his first start since the Genesis Invitational in February, where he struggled on the weekend, finishing 68th. (In his only other 2020 start at Torrey Pines, Woods finished T-9.) Woods has won five times at Muirfield but not since 2012.
