Muirfield Village Golf Club to host Presidents Cup in 2013

Info courtesy of  PGA TOUR and Muirfield Village Golf Club

The Presidents Cup will be coming to Muirfield Village in 2013, giving the course that Jack Nicklaus built the honor of hosting golf’s three biggest cup competition.

Muirfield Village held the Ryder Cup in 1987 and the Solheim Cup in 1998.

This will be the third American course to host the Presidents Cup, matches every two years between the United States and an International team of players from everywhere but Europe. It was previously held four times at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Club in northern Virginia, and at Harding Park in San Francisco in 2009.

The matches will be played at Royal Melbourne in Australia in 2011.

Jack Nicklaus (

Nicklaus has been U.S. captain a record four times and had a 2-1-1 record. It was not clear if he would be  captain for the Muirfield Village matches, although Nicklaus said after the U.S. win in 2007 that it was time for others to take that role.

Nicklaus, whose 18 major championships remain golf’s top record, was instrumental in bringing the Ryder Cup to his course in 1987, even though it ended badly. Europe won for the first time on American soil.

Nicklaus and Muirfield Village also hosted the Solheim Cup for the LPGA Tour. Putting it on a familiar course help give those matches the recognition boost it needed.

the 2013 matches will be held the first weekend of October.

MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT WINNER:Rose rallies past Rickie Fowler


DUBLIN, OHIO – England’s Justin Rose rallied from a four-shot deficit to win the Memorial with virtually a flawless final round Sunday for his first victory in seven years on the PGA Tour.

It was the second straight year the Memorial winner rallied from four shots off the pace. Tiger Woods accomplished the feat in 2009, and Rose was just as impressive in playing bogey-free at Muirfield Village Golf Club for a 6-under 66 and a three-shot victory over Rickie Fowler.

For Rose, it was his 162nd start in PGA Tour events, dating to the memorable performance he turned in as a 17-year-old amateur when he tied for fourth at Royal Birkdale in the 1998 British Open.

Fowler, the 21- year-old rookie trying to become the youngest winner on the Jack Nicklaus-built course, fell apart on the back nine to fall three shots behind Rose and never caught up. He closed the tournament with a 73 to finish runner-up for the second time this year. Fowler played in his orange Oklahoma State gear by Puma.

Rose ran off three straight birdies to make the turn, saved par with a 20-footer on the 10th to keep his onslaught, then took control over the final holes making only one birdie.

DUBLIN, OHIO – Rickie Fowler, the rookie from Oklahoma State picked up a few fans at the 2010 Memorial Tournament with his colorful clothing from Puma and the fact that he is young guy who seems like he’s having fun on the golf course. Some of my fellow members of the media says that Fowler might just be the next Tiger Woods. When they said that I was thinking of the Tiger Woods on the golf course, not the one with all of the off-course problems.

Rickie Fowler (pga)

Coming into Sunday, the tournament was Rickie Fowler’s to lose but he was being contested by Justin Rose and Tim Petrovic. Fowler had dazzled the galleries with rounds of 65, 66 and 69.

But Sundays can sometimes make or break a golfer, especially rookies due to the lack of experience playing with older golfers on the big stage of the PGA Tour.

The 21-year-old Fowler was trying to become the youngest winner on the Jack Nicklaus-built course. The rookie was doing fine until he got on the back nine and the problems started to unravel especially on the tee shot on the 12th hole where he hit it with a 5-iron and the shot went into the bridge. He was aiming for the back bunker.

Fowler looked very colorful in his Oklahoma State Orange which he wears on Sundays.

He ended up with a 73 on Sunday, 15 shots under par at 273 for the Memorial Tournament finishing second and wound up with a check worth $648,000.00.  It was his second runner-up finish in 2010.

DUBLIN, OHIO – 70-year-old Jack Nicklaus had a blast playing with the best golfers in the world in Wednesday’s annual Skins Game at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club. He was greeted with very loud applauses by the gallery.

The players used the Skins Game as a final tuneup for the tournament. They each had microphones and their comments and interviews with The Golf Channel were heard on loud speakers on the course.

Nicklaus is a very proud man but does not like playing in pro-am events  because he can’t play the way he did in the 60′s, 70′s, 80′s and early 90′s when he was dominating at times. But everybody in the Skins Game enjoyed being on the course with him.

Jack doesn’t mind playing on his course and in his hometown area of Columbus, Ohio. After all, he designed and built Muirfield Village Golf Club and created the Memorial Tournament which is highly regarded as one of the PGA Tour’s most popular stops by all the players.

Nicklaus did not win any skins, those honors went to Phil Mickelson (9), Tiger Woods (6) and Zach Johnson (3) won all of them that were available.

The Golden Bear from Upper Arlington played well, but he was on the course with four of the world’s best players: Phil Mickelson, Sean O’Hair, Kenny Perry and Ernie Els. They were competing for $25,000 which benefits The First Tee. Also competing in the other group were: Zach Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Jim Furyk and Steve Stricker.
