The Memorial Tournament 2023 is here. The event hosted by PGA Tour legend Jack Nicklaus at his Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio, will tee off on Thursday, June 1, at 7 am. The four-day event will see a stacked 120-player compete for the $20 million purse on offer.

The 33rd event on the 2022-2023 PGA Tour regular season, the Memorial Tournament field will have one of the strongest fields on the tour so far. Headlined by the likes of World No. 1 Scottie Scheffler, No. 2 Jon Rahm, and No. 3 Rory McIlroy, the field will have 15 of the top 20 and 38 of the top 50 Official World Golf Ranking players on it. However, the first tee on Thursday will be taken by the pairing of Danny Willett, Peter Malnati, and Robby Shelton.
