Memorial Tournament field to include Kuchar, Mickelson and Spieth

Dublin, Ohio – Officials of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide announced recently that the Tournament has accepted commitments from 2015 FedExCup champion and two-time major championship winner Jordan Spieth, five-time major champion and World Golf Hall of Fame member Phil Mickelson, and 2013 Memorial Tournament winner Matt Kuchar to compete in the 42nd edition of the Memorial May 29 – June 4 at Jack Nicklaus’ world-renowned Muirfield Village Golf Club.

 

Spieth is coming off the second straight multi-win season of his career. He recorded 15 top-10 finishes in 25 starts during his 2014-15 campaign and joined Jason Day with five TOUR wins, including his first and second major championship titles at the Masters Tournament and U.S. Open, respectively. He also captured the FedExCup title. It was the first time since 2009 that a player recorded at least five wins in a season. Tiger Woods won six times that year. The last time more than one player recorded five wins in a season was 1952 when Jack Burke, Jr. (2009 Memorial Tournament Honoree) and Sam Snead (1984 Memorial Tournament Honoree) accomplished the feat. A Dallas native, Spieth, 23, produced eight top-10 finishes in 21 starts last season, including his seventh and eighth PGA TOUR victories. Spieth is currently No. 6 in the world and No. 7 in FedExCup points on strength of five top-10 finishes, including his ninth-career title at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am. He has been a member of two U.S. Presidents Cup teams (2013 and 2015) and two U.S. Ryder Cup teams (2014 and 2016) and has career earnings of $28,767,811. The 2013 PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year all but swept the TOUR’s annual awards circuit in 2015, receiving the Jack Nicklaus Award as the PGA TOUR’s player of the year, the Byron Nelson Award for low adjusted scoring average (68.91) and the Arnold Palmer Award as the TOUR’s money leader. This will be Spieth’s fifth consecutive Memorial Tournament appearance. His best finish at Muirfield Village Golf Club came in 2015 when he shot a final-round 7-under-par 65 and tied for third. Spieth’s T-57 effort last year brought his Tournament scoring average to 71.13 and increased his Memorial earnings to $456,998.78.

 

Mickelson, 46, will be making his 17th start at this year’s Memorial. His first appearance came in 1991 as an amateur where he finished tied for 66th place. In his last 11 starts at the Memorial, dating to 1999, Mickelson has finished in the top-20 seven times. He withdrew due to injuries in 2007 and 2012 and finished T-20 last year with rounds of 68-69-69-72. His Memorial Tournament career earnings total $948,690.19 with a scoring average of 71.51. His best finish was a T4 outing in 2006. The World Golf Hall of Fame member and five-time major champion has been a member of a record 11 U.S. Presidents Cup teams and 11 U.S. Ryder Cup teams. Through 11 starts in the 2016-2017 season the Rancho Santa Fe, California, resident has recorded three top-10 finishes.  Mickelson is currently ranked No. 21 in the Official World Golf Ranking and No. 39 in FedExCup standings. On the strength of 42 career PGA TOUR titles he is ranked No. 2 in career earnings on the PGA TOUR with $82,714,987.

 

Kuchar, 38, is coming off a successful 2015-16 season with 10 top-10 finishes, including three third-place outings. He has continued to play well this season, recording two top-10 finishes over 14 events, including a T-4 finish at the Masters Tournament. Kuchar is ranked No. 20 in the world and stands No. 52 in FedExCup points. The TOUR’s leading money winner in 2010, Kuchar has career earnings of $38,903,341 to go with seven PGA TOUR titles. The Sea Island, Ga., resident has been a member of four U.S. Ryder Cup teams (2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016) and three U.S. Presidents Cup teams (2011, 2013 and 2015). The 2013 Memorial winner will be returning to Muirfield Village Golf Club for a 12th time. He has posted six top-10 efforts during that period, finishing T-4 last year. Kuchar’s Tournament scoring average is 70.24 and he has $2,806,994.16 in career earnings, which ranks fourth all-time at the Memorial.

Major champion Adam Scott joins World No. 10 Justin Thomas and rising star Jon Rahm to compete

Dublin, Ohio – Officials of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide announced today that the Tournament has accepted entries from 2010 Master champion Adam Scott, World No. 10 Justin Thomas and rising star Jon Rahm to compete in the 42nd edition of the Memorial May 29 – June 4 at world-renowned Muirfield Village Golf Club.

 

Scott has been a model of consistency throughout his professional career, recording at least one PGA TOUR victory in all but four years (2005, 2009, 2012 and 2015) since joining in 2003. Along the way, the 36-year-old Australian native has collected 13 TOUR wins, including the 2013 Masters Tournament, and career earnings totaling $46,045,007. Scott is coming off his third multi-win season, with back-to-back victories at the 2016 Honda Classic and World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. He has finished inside the top-10 two times in seven starts during his 2016-17 campaign and is ranked No. 11 in the world. Scott will be making his 10th start at the Memorial, looking to add to his career Tournament earnings of $934,361.33. He has recorded three top-10 finishes at Muirfield Village Golf Club and has a Tournament scoring average of 71.56. He matched his best Tournament finish in his last appearance at the Memorial in 2014 when he tied for fourth place, a feat he first accomplished in 2006.

 

Thomas, 24, kicked off his 2016-17 PGA TOUR campaign in dominant fashion with three wins in his first six events. Now with 13 starts on the season he has an impressive six top-10 finishes, just one shy of his total through 28 events last season.  The Kentucky native has already achieved a season-best in earnings with $4,449,220 in route to a No. 10 world ranking and No. 2 ranking in FedExCup points. In three seasons on the PGA TOUR Thomas has career earnings of $10,884,161 and is one of only eight players in TOUR history to card an 18-hole score of 59 during competition, which he achieved earlier this year in the opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. Thomas will be making his fourth start at the Memorial. His best results came in 2014 when he finished tied for 37th place. His Tournament earnings total $25,420 and his scoring average at Muirfield Village Golf Club is 73. Thomas missed the CUT in 2016 after back-to-back rounds of 77.

 

A decorated amateur, Rahm burst onto the PGA TOUR with three top-10 finishes in his first nine starts, including a T3 effort in his professional debut at the Quicken Loans National in June of 2016. The Spanish native captured his first-career TOUR title at the 2017 Farmers Insurance Open in just his 12th start, to go with five top-10 finishes in 11 starts this season. He is ranked No. 13 in the world and No. 4 in FedExCup points. This will be Rahm’s first Memorial Tournament appearance, however, not his first trip to Muirfield Village Golf Club. Rahm visited Dublin, Ohio last year during the final round of the Memorial to receive the Jack Nicklaus Award as Collegiate Player of the Year in Division I. The Sun Devil also was the first two-time winner of the Ben Hogan Award as a junior and senior at Arizona State.

2017 Ambassador of Golf honor goes to Peter Jacobsen

Jacobsen to be honored at World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational

AKRON, Ohio – Peter Jacobsen, known for his passion and personality throughout his 40-year PGA TOUR and PGA TOUR Champions careers, has been named the 2017 recipient of the Ambassador of Golf Award. The Ambassador of Golf Award is presented annually by Northern Ohio Golf Charities to a person who has fostered the ideals of the game on an international level and whose concern for others extends beyond the golf course.
Jacobsen will be honored during a presentation on the first tee at Firestone Country Club at 5:30 p.m., on Wednesday, August 2. Fans with Wednesday tickets will hear remarks from Jacobsen and PGA TOUR Commissioner Jay Monahan.

Peter Jacobsen

“I’m honored to be named this year’s recipient of the Ambassador of Golf award,” said Jacobsen. “Looking at the long list of golf’s greats that have achieved this award is humbling and I’m thrilled to be selected to join them.”
“Peter has been an incredible ambassador of the game, and has set an example both inside and outside the ropes,” said Monahan. “We couldn’t think of a better recipient this year as someone whose love of the game and acts off the course embody the Ambassador of Golf Award. We’re proud to honor him at the Bridgestone Invitational this year and beyond.”
Jacobsen, 62, made his PGA TOUR debut in 1977 and won seven times during his career. Jacobsen also collected 10 other victories, participated on four national teams and has won twice on the PGA TOUR Champions. Jacobsen’s most successful year on TOUR came in 1995 when he brought home two PGA TOUR victories and represented the USA in both the Ryder Cup and the Dunhill Cup. Jacobsen served as a player director on the PGA TOUR Policy Board in 1983, 1985, 1992 and 1994.
Jacobsen’s impact in the golf world has been felt outside the ropes as well. He started his work as a golf commentator for ABC-TV, covering the Skins Game throughout the late 1980s and early 1990s. He covered the 1991 Ryder Cup matches for NBC Sports and, in 2011, joined their golf broadcast team. He also had two shows on the Golf Channel for three seasons each: “Peter and Friends” and “Peter Jacobsen Plugged In.”
In 1989, Jacobsen established Peter Jacobsen SPORTS, LLC, a sports marketing and management firm. Since its inception, the firm has produced more than 300 events worldwide, including the CVS Health Charity Classic in Rhode Island. PJS also assists Lexus with managing and executing their official vehicle partnership with the USGA. Jacobsen has served as a principal of the Jacobsen Hardy Golf Course Design Company since 1995, and he has co-designed more than 10 golf courses across Oregon, California, Washington, Florida and Texas. Over the last two decades, Jacobsen has written and released two books, “Buried Lies: True Tales and Tall Stories From the PGA TOUR” and “Embedded Balls.”
Giving back to local and national communities has always been incredibly important to Jacobsen, and he feels particularly connected to nonprofit organizations that focus on children’s health and education and to organizations that work to improve the quality of life for military veterans. Over the years, he has given his time and resources to support nonprofits such as Devin’s Destiny, The First Tee, Folds of Honor, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Lines for Life, Cascade AIDS Project, Randall Children’s Hospital at Legacy Emanuel and Wounded Warrior Project. Since 1989, Peter Jacobsen SPORTS-managed events have contributed more than $40 million to various nonprofits around the United States.
Jacobsen notably won the Payne Stewart Award in 2013 for his values of character, charity and sportsmanship, and most recently was awarded the Charlie Bartlett Award by the Golf Writers Association of America for his contributions inside and outside of the ropes.
Jacobsen and his wife Jan have been married for 40 years and have three children and four grandchildren.
Jacobsen joins an illustrious list of Ambassador of Golf Award winners: 1981 Chi Chi Rodriguez; 1982 Bing Crosby; 1983 Byron Nelson; 1984 Gene Sarazen; 1985 President Gerald Ford; 1986 Bob Hope; 1987 Dinah Shore; 1988 Joe Dey; 1989 Frank Chirkinian; 1990 Barbara Nicklaus; 1991 Arnold Palmer; 1992 Nancy Lopez; 1993 Roberto De Vicenzo; 1994 President George H.W.
