This week, the golfing world is turning its attention to the second major of the year, with players ready for The Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village.
Just a couple of weeks after the PGA Championship and not long to go before the U.S. Open, players are heading to the famed Muirfield Village for The Memorial Tournament.
The Memorial Tournament 2022 Fantasy Picks
Patrick Cantlay Fantasy
Patrick Cantlay has dominated this course and event over the last few years. He won the event both last season and in 2019. He also finished 4th in 2018. While Cantlay missed the cut at last week's PGA Championship, so did a lot of other big names. Prior to last week, Cantlay finished No. 2 at the RBC Heritage and then was part of the winning team at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Expect him to get back on track with another strong showing at a course he clearly loves.
Shane Lowry Fantasy
Shane Lowry has two top-three finishes in his last four starts and a T-23 and 13th-place finish to couple with those. When it comes to Muirfield Village Golf Club, the 35-year-old Irishman placed 6th in this event in 2021 and 15th in 2018. Lowry's short game has been fantastic this year ranking No. 11 on Tour in Strokes Gained (SG): Putting. He's also No. 8 in SG: Approach The Green.
The Memorial Tournament Sleepers 2022
Rickie Fowler Fantasy
Rickie Fowler hasn't exactly wowed people this season, but he is on a string of three consecutive cuts made. His past success at Muirfield Village is the reason he could be a great sleeper option. He's placed inside the top-15 in four of his last five times teeing it up for The Memorial Tournament, which also includes two top-10 finishes. Fowler has seemingly been trying to get his career back on track for a couple of years now, and what better place to start than Muirfield Village, which has historically given him a boost.
