PGA The Memorial Tournament Predictions 5/29/19, Who Will Win?

Moore birdied four straight holes in his opening nine holes on his way to a 7-under-par 65, and Jordan Spieth briefly tied him before settling for a 66 - a fourth consecutive tournament with a first-round score under par.

Former world No 1 Woods, playing for the first time since missing the cut at the PGA Championship, made birdies at two of his three closing holes to stay under par. He played his back nine in a foursome with Bryson DeChambeau, Justin Rose and a rules official in a cart timing them because they were so far out of position. That happened to DeChambeau on the fifth hole (his 14th) and meant that the rest of the round, he played with the fear of a one-shot penalty.

However, Woods posted a two-under-par 70 during the first round of the Memorial to sit five shots off the pace with day one play still underway.

Justin Thomas (+1800) had to miss the PGA Championship due to a wrist injury and hasn't played since the Masters but is going to give it a go this week.

I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend and enjoy what should be a fantastic week of PGA Tour golf.

5-time victor Tiger Woods will be making an appearance this week as he did last season.

More than three years since his last victory worldwide, Scott says the key to winning is not thinking about the result. "And I putted fairly well at the US PGA first week back out with the long one, and you get on nice greens like this, get the confidence up, it's nice to see them rolling in the hole".

Schauffele is coming off a bad week last week at Colonial, but he's a player who tends to bounce back well from poor tournaments.

After a look at Muirfield Village and the players who have recently conquered it, here are some of the golfers this year who may play well enough to be in the hunt come Sunday.

"I really like the course; it suits me", Scott said. "I was close to being out there with them". "I just need to play a little bit more now". His 67 left him two strokes back and tied for third with Anirban Lahiri, Marc Leishman, Martin Kaymer and Bud Cauley. Both of those stats will absolutely be in play at the Memorial, at a course that isn't quite as hard as Bethpage Black.
