PGA Muirfiled Village Vol. 2 Coming Soon To A Screen Near You

PGA

 

The PGA Tour will make its second appearance in as many weeks at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.

Jack’s Place will be the setting for The Memorial Tournament this weekend. This will be the first time that one course has been the host for back-to-back tournaments in back-to-back weeks.

The course breakdown is going to be the same as it was described in last week’s article. The only differences that there will be are quicker greens, thicker rough, and different hole locations.

Realistically, this just means we won’t see scores as low as we did this week.

I would project closer to around 10-12 under for the top 5 this week. Let’s not gloss over the biggest headline of the week.

Tiger’s back

You read that right. Tiger Woods will tee it up for the Tour for the first time since the return from the COVID-19 shutdown.

Tiger was quoted as saying he wanted to see how things looked and how the protocols would work before jumping back him. The Boss Man being in the field always makes for an exciting time.

Last week was the closest we have been with our picks since golf has been back. I feel good after last week.

Our top pick lost on the third hole of a two-man playoff. So I guess I’ll pull from Houston Kress, “I am not always right, but I am never wrong.”

Bryson, “The Meat-Head” DeChambeau, is the favorite this week at 9-1. After a week off, I can easily see a top-10 for him, but not a win.

This week “Best Bet” is Tiger Woods at 25-1.

The Boss Man has won this tournament five times in his career. He is comfortable on this course. Tiger was stroking the ball during “The Match.” He has plenty of rest to make sure his back and body are ready to go.

Lock. This. In.

The “Dark Horse” this go-around is going to be Collin Morikawa.

I like the youngster this week after a great victory this past week. Collin is consistently compared to Tiger when it comes to the start of their careers. He is going to be special for years to come.

I like Kevin Kisner this week for our “Long-Shot.”

This ain’t no hobby, folks. Kis is a solid golfer with a seemingly endless amount of top-10 finishes. I think he has a good shot this week on a course he has done well on historically.

There we go, y’all. Lock in those picks.

Here is how to catch the action this weekend.

Thursday, July 16: 2:30-6:30 p.m. ET (Golf Channel)

Of course, as always, 95% of the action can be caught on PGA Tour Live. Unless, of course, it is the most important three holes, the playoff.

Hopefully, the PGA will have their shit together and be able to televise everything appropriately this week.
