Jon Rahm is the defending champion having won the last year's tournament and he became the first Spanish player to win the competition. 
 
The former world number one will now be looking to make it two titles in a row at the Muirfield Village Golf Club. 
 
However, Rahm will have some stiff competition in this year's field with big-name players such as Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, and Jordan Spieth set to tee it up this week. 
 
While former Memorial Tournament winners Patrick Cantlay, Bryson DeChambeau, Jason Dufner, and William McGirt will also take part in the competition.

The Memorial Tournament management has taken the unprecedented step of offering Covid-19 vaccinations at Muirfield Village. 
 
The fans will be offered Johnson & Johnson vaccines and this has been confirmed by the tournament director Dan Sullivan.
 
“This is a perfect way to enjoy the world’s best golfers, and all that the Memorial Tournament has to offer, while also helping more Ohioans get vaccinated,” Sullivan said.
 
Tiger Woods is the most decorated player in the history of the Memorial Tournament having won five titles in 1999, 2000, 2001, 2009 and 2012.
