Woods now is at 81 career victories on the PGA Tour, one short of the official record - as official as the tour can determine - that Sam Snead set from 1936 to 1965.
This tournament is circled on almost all the tour players schedule and that's because of who hosts this great event, The Golden Bear. It is played at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.
Woods is a five-time victor at the Memorial, and the most recent victory at Muirfield Village (2012) was significant because it was his 73rd title on the PGA Tour, which tied him with Nicklaus for second on the career list. The course, designed by Nicklaus, is a par 72 measuring almost 7,400 yards and also has hosted a Ryder Cup (1987) and Presidents Cup (2013). I myself had an opportunity to play in a pro-am they are a blast. During last year's play the 16hole played as the hardest, the 12as the second most difficult, while the 4and 8holes were ranked 5and 8in difficulty respectively.
What is the total prize fund of the 2019 Memorial Tournament? . Woods has won the Memorial a record five times, last in 2012. Because, of course, the last time before that that we'd seen Woods, he was fitting on a fifth green jacket at Augusta. After the disappointment of the PGA Championship it's safe to assume this will be to shake off any rust heading into the US Open. Justin Thomas is also in the field this week after not playing since The Masters due to a wrist injury suffered at The Honda Classic. He should fare well at this course but being on the shelf for over a month may not fair too well for him.

One of the rising stars won the tournament in 2018.
As for a favorite this week, I'm going to go with someone who's been on a tear lately, and that's Patrick Cantlay. "I did birdie 18, I'm glad you saw that, so that's all you really need to know".
Day is now ranked 16th in the Official World Golf Ranking, but he's been the No. 1 player as recently as 2016 when he won eight times during a 15-month span, including capturing the 2015 PGA Championship and the 2016 Players Championship. He is very consistent with his play, but he hasn't broken through until last week. The last repeat victor at the Memorial was Tiger in 2001.
