The 2019 Memorial Tournament takes place at Muirfield Village Golf Club, beginning on Thursday, May 30. This tournament features three of the Top-5 ranked golfers in the sport, including Tiger Woods. This will be Woods' second tournament since winning the Masters in April.

However, Woods isn't the favorite heading into the tournament, as Rory McIlroy has the best odds to win at +950, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

McIlory, who is currently ranked No. 4 in the world, finished T-8 at the PGA Championship earlier this month, so he's been playing some solid golf as of late.

Woods isn't too far behind, as he's listed at +1000 to win the Memorial Tournament. History could be on Woods' side, as he has five career victories at

Muirfield Village.

Following Woods is Patrick Cantlay (+1500) and Justin Rose (+1700). Cantlay finished in fourth place at 14-under par in the 2018 Memorial Tournament. Given how well Catlay played in this tournament last year, it should come as no surprise that he has the third-best odds to win outright this weekend.

Other notable odds include Justin Thomas (+1700) and Rickie Fowler (+2100), as both golfers finished in the Top 10 in last year's Memorial Tournament.

Even though big-name golfers like Brooks Koepka and Dustin Johnson are sitting this tournament out, the 2019 Memorial Tournament should feature a ton of great golfers. While McIlroy is the favorite, he'll likely face some stiff competition from Woods, Cantlay and Fowler.
