Rick Gehman and Greg DuCharme recap Friday’s action at the 2022 Memorial Tournament.

If you’re strictly looking at strength of field, this week’s Memorial Tournament, which began Thursday, is the sixth-best in the world so far in 2022. The event is usurped only by two majors, the Players, a WGC and Riviera. It’s easy to see why, too, as 13 of the top 18 golfers in the Official World Golf Rankings will tee it up at Muirfield Village in what will be, for many of them, a last event before the United States Open.

Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Collin Morikawa and the last two champions (Patrick Cantlay and Jon Rahm) will all be in attendance, and the ending from 2021 brings some added drama. Rahm had to withdraw after 54 holes because of a positive COVID-19 test, and Cantlay went on to beat Morikawa in a playoff. Rahm was up by six when he withdrew and almost certainly would have gone on to win the tournament.

Instead, Cantlay won it for the second time in three years. Coincidentally, Rahm and Cantlay actually make up the last three winners of this tournament in what has been a long history of elite champions. Despite some interesting one-off wins by players like David Lingmerth and William McGirt, this event has mostly been full-time hitters only. Alongside Cantlay and Rahm, Bryson DeChambeau, Hideki Matsuyama and Tiger Woods (five times) have all won here.

This event is always a great start to summer and one of the best shows on the PGA Tour. With a redesigned golf course that tournament host Jack Nicklaus wants to play difficult for the best players in the world, this event is not a major championship, but it’s a pretty good facsimile for one.

  1. Here is the one and done leaderboard heading into the weekend
    Note we had a casulaity Rick and Sia had Colin Morikawa but he missed the cut at +4

    Mark and Greg had Cameron Young he is t-4 at -6
    Coach had Patrick Cantlay he is -3 t 18
    Fans and Jacob have Jon Rahm he is -2 t 24
    KP had Mito Periera he is +1 t 48

  2. No love for Mito? He makes more cuts than Cam & Davis… and Cam Davis.

  3. Most exciting thing on this board for me? K.H. Lee possibly getting a chance to win a major event, and Niemann possibly getting ready to make a move tomorrow.

    Not a fan of the Rory love train. The guy's had his chance in the limelight years ago for many years, and it's time for a new generation to take prominence. I get why some people like him, but it's not for me. I think Cam Smith also goes down tomorrow as the course gets harder, even though I normally like Cam Smith. I don't trust him for a second here.

    I'm also still not convinced Rahm still can't make a move tomorrow. If I remember right, he came from way behind to win in 2020. I'm also very intrigued by Molinari. I keep expecting him to collapse any moment from lack of playing year round, as he usually does, and he's still here. Sungjae's unpredictable, so he could definitely win.
