2024 Memorial Tournament Tournament preview

The Memorial Tournament is this week, and the PGA Tour is back at Jack's place for a Signature event. Nicklaus has really enjoyed making Muirfield Village tough the last few years, so expect it again.

2024 Memorial Tournament Tournament rankings: Top 10 teams

1. Scottie Scheffler: There's no debating who is the best player in this field. It's just a debate of whether Scheffler will finish higher than third, as he has two of the last three years.

2. Xander Schauffele: Whoa, a little curveball here! Xander gets into the top 15 here quite a bit, but it's tough for him to crack into the top 10.

3. Rory McIlroy: Rory just does not have the kind of record here that can support putting him second on the list.

4. Collin Morikawa: Morikawa has been striking the ball so well the last few months, and he has done well here in the past -- including that random COVID double Memorial event.

5. Max Homa: I have Homa here somewhat by default, based on the last three years in this event. However, he was off by a million miles a Colonial, which is a concern.

6. Patrick Cantlay: Cantlay has a thing for Muirfield Village, but he's otherwise been a relative dud this year -- save for Riviera.

7. Viktor Hovland: I'm not really sure which Hovland we're going to get this week, but my hope is it's the guy who was great at the PGA Championship.

8. Shane Lowry: I think Lowry could be quite a pick this week, as he was great at Valhalla and played well here a couple of years ago.

9. Billy Horschel: Horschel is a winner here, and he's been having a really strong season. Was great at Valhalla and solid at Memorial.

10. Denny McCarthy: Denny has been close here the last two years, losing to Viktor Hovland in a playoff in 2023.
