With the PGA Championship fully in the rearview mirror, this week brings us another well-known PGA Tour stop with the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village GC. The field is loaded with big names, with everyone from last year's champion, Bryson DeChambeau, to Tiger Woods.

With that in mind, let's take a look at some golfers to watch out for in this week's event in Dublin, OH.

Matt Kuchar

Kuchar is having an excellent season overall. He's the current leader in FedExCup points and has already grabbed two wins and two second-place finishes in 2019. His No. 1 ranking in greens in regulation (GIR) on tour is a big reason for all his success. This week, he heads to a course and tournament where he's experienced a ton of success. He's No. 2 on Memorial's all-time money list, with one win in 2013 and 10 top-15 finishes overall.

Tiger Woods

Tiger might be the only guy with more success at the Memorial than Kuchar. He's won it five times, which is exactly why, despite his poor showing at Bethpage Black during the PGA Championship, you can never count him out of this tournament whenever he plays it. He has three top-10 finishes this season and did win the Masters two starts ago.

Tony Finau

Finau's reported changes to his putting resulted in a second-place finish at Colonial last weekend. If he can carry that momentum into a tournament where he's already experienced past success, never missing the cut and garnering three top-15 finishes, Finau could find himself atop the leaderboard once again.

Rickie Fowler

Finishing off the trend here of golfers who have had success at Memorial, Fowler fits the bill. Despite disappointing performances in his last two outings at the PGA Championship and Charles Schwab Challenge, in the last two years at the Memorial, Fowler has a T-2 and a T-8, with a scoring average of just over 69 in those eight rounds.
