The PGA TOUR heads to Ohio for the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide Insurance, and there’s a good forecast for former Oklahoma State golfers.
On the current Expert Picks for the weekend on pgatour.com, John Schwarb is picking Rickie Fowler to finish in the Top 10 for a fifth-consecutive time. Fowler tied for 5th at the Colonial last weekend after shooting a 5-under for the tournament.
Fowler will tee off with Bubba Watson and Phil Mickelson (Greatest group ever?) on Thursday (1:05 PM off tee #1) and Friday (8:15 AM off tee #10).
Hunter Mahan, currently ranked second overall in the FedEx Cup Standings, is also participating. He will tee off at 12:54 PM on Thursday and 8:04 AM on Friday.
Bo Van Pelt, who stayed in contention for the Colonial for about 3.5 rounds, will tee off at 7:53 AM on Thursday, and 12:43 PM on Friday.
Peter Uihlein, who missed the cut last weekend in Fort Worth after a 10-over second round will have the weekend off, as will Scott Verplank, who dropped from the Colonial field citing a wrist injury. There has been no word on how much time he will miss. Charles Howell III will also have the weekend off.
