2023 the Memorial Tournament preview

The Memorial Tournament is this week, and we have a major-caliber field with a major-caliber test at Muirfield Village. Depending on how Jack wants it set up, this place could play a lot like Oak Hill.

2023 the Memorial Tournament rankings: Top 10 expert picks

1. Jon Rahm: Rahm is still playing the best overall golf this year on the PGA Tour (and maybe in the world, but that's another debate).

2. Scottie Scheffler: Scheffler still doesn't seem to be on his absolute best, but he's been right up there in his last two events.

3. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay loves this venue, and he loves himself some northeast-style golf, which is what Muirfield Village is.

4. Xander Schauffele: I have a feeling Xander is winning the US Open (sorry, Max), and this could be a great tune-up.

5. Cameron Young: It's hard to overpower this golf course, but Cam Young has the capability.

6. Viktor Hovland: Hovland is starting to become a more consistent threat, doing well at Oak Hill and Colonial.

7. Rickie Fowler: Fowler has been in the mix before at the Memorial, and there's reason to believe he will be again.

8. Sahith Theegala: The win is coming for Theegala. Not sure when, but he does seem to thrive in tougher tournaments.

9. Collin Morikawa: Morikawa has slid off a bit from the Masters timeframe, but he's just hanging in there with a decent form and going to a place he likes.

10. Rory McIlroy: McIlroy had himself a great finish to the PGA, so maybe he has sorted out what got him at Augusta and Quail Hollow.
