  • The Memorial Tournament, which is a designated event, is June 1-4.
  • Virtually all of the top players are in the field.
  • Golf Channel and CBS will share the TV coverage.

The Memorial Tournament, which has a $20 million purse since it’s a designated event, will be June 1-4 from Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.

Tournament host Jack Nicklaus has always attracted a great field, but it’s even better this year. Only two qualified players in the top 50 in the Official World Golf Rankings won’t be teeing it up — Max Homa and Tony Finau.

Billy Horschel is the defending champion.
