This week the PGA Tour heads to Muirfield Village for the Memorial Tournament, traditionally one of the biggest weekends on the calendar.

After undergoing renovations in 2020 and 2021, the Jack Nicklaus-designed course is back to its best and ready to welcome an all-star field.

Defending champion Patrick Cantlay, who also won in 2019, is looking to become just the third man to win Memorial three times. Meanwhile, Jon Rahm is seeking to make up for last year when he led by six after round three before being forced to withdraw due to Covid-19.

Bryson DeChambeau has stated his aim of returning from injury, while Collin Morikawa is out for revenge after being pipped by Cantlay last year.

The bunkered Bet

Chris Kirk (50/1): Has hit form in the past few weeks, finishing tied for fifth at the US PGA before another top-20 at the Charles Schwab Challenge. Could be a good outside bet for a first PGA Tour win since 2015.

Always gamble resonsibly.
