If you noticed I missed last week, I applaud you for paying attention. And for the record I had Kuch and Zach last week. Plus who doesn't love Boo in plaid. That said coming off our american holiday hangovers who doesn't want to sober up with Jack and his merry men. Names like Tiger, Rory, Luke and Lee highlight the games elite meet in Dublin, Ohio. it may not sound sexy but this event hosted outside of Jack Nicklaus' hometown is always good for some excitement. ie. Tiger last year at the 16th.
The signature Muirfield Village Golf Club, has also hosted several national championships and international team competitions, including the 1992 U.S. Amateur, 1987 Ryder Cup, the 1998 Solheim Cup and the 1986 U.S. Junior Amateur. It and The Greenbrier in West Virginia are the only two places to have hosted both the Ryder and Solheim Cup. And this fall the course will also host the President's Cup, Americans along with the International outside Australia and South Africa will look to stand out, as both captains Freddy Couples and Nick Price will be on hand this week.

Alright unless your living under a rock you have to have Tiger on your team. It`s an easy pick I can guartee only the haters will stay away. Since this week is almost a forgone conclusion Ill just post my picks for the week and leave at that. Plus this tweet kind says it all:
@PGATOUR: Stat worth dusting off: Half of Tiger's 78 #PGATOUR wins have come at 6 events (Bay Hill, Doral, Torrey Pines, Bridgestone, Memorial, BMW).He`s won the Memorial five times and by Sunday evening it should be six, but just encase Nike has the showdown they bought earlier this year, keep Rory on your bench.
A List: Tiger Woods B List: Matt Kuchar B List: Luke Donald C List: Billy Horschel
Bench: Rory McIlroy, Nick Watney, Jim Furyk, Lee Westwood
And something special for my fans.. Pauline Gretzky can melt ice caps and god I love summer.
