2021 Memorial Tournament
US PGA Tour
Muirfield Village Golf Club
Dublin, Ohio, USA
3-6 June 2021
Jordan Spieth will be eager to continue his good form at the Memorial Tournament
in Dublin, Ohio, USA.
The American star is placed 23rd in the Official World Golf Ranking and he is a former world number one.
Spieth, who is the 2015 FedEx Cup champion, has won 12 competitions in the PGA Tour including three major championships.
The 27-year-old recently ended his four-year trophy drought when won the Valero Texas Open near San Antonio, Texas last month.
Spieth won the tournament with rounds of 67-70-67-66, beating Charley Hoffman by two strokes, to end a 1,351-day spell without a victory.
The Texas-born golfer followed this victory with a tie-third-place finish in the Masters Tournament and he then contracted and recovered from COVID-19.
Returning at the AT&T Byron Nelson earlier this month, Spieth finished tied for ninth, his sixth top ten of 2021.
Spieth, who has won the Masters Tournament, US Open and The Open Championship, feels that he has made good progress this year.
“All in all, I’ve made a lot of good progress, but I feel like that road ahead is still significant for me,” Spieth said.
“So I’ve got at least a couple weeks off right now where I’ll rest for a while and then regroup. Off weeks are where you can make maybe 5 percent differences.
"Tournament to tournament, it’s hard to go more than a couple percent and trust what you’re doing.”
Tiger Woods is the most decorated player in the history of the Memorial Tournament having won five titles in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2009 and 2012.
