The.Frozen.Predictions- The Memorial

    Monday the US celebrated Memorial day which gave us an opportunity to appreciate the troops and all those that Serve. But golf this past weekend gave us a chance to honour everything we love about the game.

Canadian Golf also lost a legend this week..
    While some of us had the begins of summer in the frozen land were I reside I wasn't so lucky. But I couldn't complain, it was too cold even for me to hit the course, but for a full day of golf on the telly it was perfect.  Sunday started with the BMW in London we saw Rory fight back from seven shots back to win. Then major winners Jason Dufner and Adam Scott squaring off in a playoff, but if you were watching all this unfold, you may have missed out on the Seniors PGA as Sir Monty finally won on US soil and in a major no less. But the ladies weren't about to be overshadowed by all the men with a group of young stars Michelle Wie, Stacy Lewis and Lexi Thompson all in contention it was Jessica Korda that birded 4 of 5 closing holes to win by a stroke.

   When we look back at this week which started with a Tiger Presser and  news that Rory called off his wedding. The conversation had shifted away from the play on the course. It was great to have a Sunday that brought the focus back to on course achievements. Anyway onto Dublin, Ohio and Jack Nicklaus' Muirfield Village.

Past Winners..
2013 Matt Kuchar (-12)
2012  Tiger Woods (-9)
2011  Steve Stricker (-16)
2010  Justin Rose (-18)
2009  Tiger Woods (-12)

The Course..
   The last time the PGA Tour stopped in Jack's backyard it wasn't for this event just a year ago it was for the President's Cup and the US was victorious as usual. But if you're looking to members of each team competition to put on your team don't look past the likes of Brendon de Jonge and Hideki Matsuyama. Muirfield traditionally plays as a long hitters ballpark, playing as a par 72 at 7,352 yards with some of the fast greens on tour a alot like Augusta National. So you may want to put Bubba Waston and Jordan Speith on your team as well. But if I have to pick a winner today it would Rory McIlroy cause he's building a case for the bachelor life, since Clooney is getting hitch someone has to pick up the torch
