Memorial a home game only by location for Jason Day

"How many tournaments do you think that we entered that we withdrew from during the course of our career?" I didn't have an entourage.

Rather than overthink his approach, Mickelson said he would rather work on his game and try to be as sharp as possible.

"That's a month away".

Drew Weaver, who was a victor on the Mackenzie Tour in 2015 before ultimately earning status on the Tour in 2016, says the transition from Tour to Tour was really fluid, as the Mackenzie Tour prepared him to learn how to travel for a big schedule.

"But really the end of the 36 holes was probably the most memorable of all for me because he sat next to me in the locker room, changing his spiked shoes at that time, and he put his hand on my knee, he said, 'You've got the game to do well in America.' And that was that."Again, that was Jack saying the right thing at the right time to give me the confidence". To me, he is the likeliest one battling down the stretch on Sunday.

Jason Day, of Australia, watches his tee shot on the sixth hole during round-robin play against Pat Perez at the Dell Technologies Match Play golf tournament at Austin County Club, Wednesday, March 22, 2017, in Austin, Texas.

Notable: Nordquist shot 64 in the final round but still had to hold off Haru Nomura by one shot. Johnson laid up in flawless position. "And DJ has never let me live it down".

And Kisner knows he still remembers. And then you get to the routing. "To see numerous alumni, including our first three Order of Merit winners, play so well on the Tour and then go on to earn their PGA TOUR cards has been fantastic to see, and we look forward to seeing even greater accomplishments in the future". I like those odds for a former victor of this tournament. Working against a victory for Ryu this week is a peculiar trend on the LPGA Tour - it has not had a multiple victor through 12 events this year, the longest streak since 1991. A year ago was the most hard with an injury to his left wrist that eventually required surgery. He last missed the cut here in 2009 and seems to have a fair amount of comfort and reliability to make it to the weekend. He played the Puerto Rico Open and tied for fifth, which got him into the Houston Open. That's unlikely, as it would require presenting sponsor Nationwide to sign off on it, and it would risk the Memorial losing some of its identity.

Bubba Watson. #34 OWGR and #125 in FedEx Cup points.

Hideki Matsuyama - The world number four won here in 2014 and has come a long way since then.

DIVOTS: Chan Kim, who grew up in Hawaii and played at Arizona State, had the best week of his life. From its inception, it has been one of the premiere events on the PGA TOUR. ANA Inspiration victor So Yeon Ryu dropped to No. 3, but she will have a fourth chance to get to No. 1 at the ShopRite Classic because Lydia Ko and Ariya Jutanugarn are not playing.

Norman became only the second Australian-born golfer since Peter Thomson in 1998 to be honored with the award at Muirfield Village, and where the Queenslander won twice in his PGA Tour career. Torrance won 21 times and played 706 tournaments, which remains a European Tour record.

Six of the world's top 10 are in the field for this weekend's Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village, but world number two Rory McIlroy is absent with a rib injury and 2010 victor Justin Rose was a late withdrawal on Sunday as he focuses on the upcoming US Open.

Nicklaus took time out during his press conference at the Memorial on Tuesday to show his support for Woods, who has won 14 majors to Nicklaus' 18. The others were Sergio Garcia, McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Woods.

But it's an example of a complicated process that Monahan faces if the tour decides to go through with a revamped schedule.
