The tournament, founded by Jack Nicklaus, has been played at Muirfield Village Golf Club in the suburbs of Columbus, Ohio, every year since its inception in 1976, so it’s a course that Woods is very familiar with.

Its $9.1 million purse — a $200,000 increase from last year — for 2019 is higher than any other PGA Tour tournament in May besides the PGA Championship. The purse saw a dramatic increase in 2016 from $6,200,000 to $8,500,000. With his forgettable missed cut at the PGA Championship in the rearview mirror, Tiger Woods will try to right the ship at the Memorial Tournament, the next event on his 2019 schedule.Woods shot 5-over par in the first two rounds at Bethpage Black in the second major of the year, missing the cut by a stroke. His performance was a far cry from his memorable Masters win.
