On the Eve of the U.S. Open

Leading into the U.S. Open, the PGA and players focus on children’s medical needs for two weekends. Last week was Jack and Barbara Nicklaus’ Memorial tournament in Ohio had an exceptional field and tomorrow starts the St. Jude Classic at the TPC Southwind in Memphis.

The St. Jude officially began in 1989, but its roots date back to 1958 when it was founded as the Memphis Open with a $20,000.00 purse.

Phil Mickelson said, “It’s in great shape.  It always is.  It’s really a wonderful golf course.  I think it’s one of the most underrated courses or the most underrated course we have on TOUR.  I think that it’s such a straightforward, fun test of golf, and if you hit good shots, you get rewarded with good putts at birdies, and if you miss the greens, you’re challenged by a very good up and down.  I like everything about Southwind.  I don’t think it gets the credit it deserves, but it’s really a wonderful layout.”

Bryson DeChambeau won his second PGA tournament Sunday at the Memorial. It didn’t come easy for Bryson, but on the second playoff hole he sunk a 12 foot birdie putt to defeat Byeong Hun An.
