The 2020 WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational begins on Thursday at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee.
The 78-player field includes the top eight players in the Official World Golf Rankings: Jon Rahm (No. 1), Rory McIlroy (No. 2), Justin Thomas (No. 3), Dustin Johnson (No. 4), Webb Simpson (No. 5), Brooks Koepka (No. 6), Bryson DeChambeau (No. 7) and Patrick Reed (No. 8).
Featured groups for the event’s first two rounds are Bryson DeChambeau, Rickie Fowler, Jon Rahm; Patrick Reed, Viktor Hovland, Brooks Koepka; Rory McIlroy, Webb Simpson, Jordan Spieth; and Hideki Matsuyama, Collin Morikawa, Justin Thomas.
Koepka returns to Memphis to defend his title after having surgery in September to repair a partially torn patella tendon and then re-aggravating the left knee in October. Last week, Koepka said his knee felt the best it had in a while, but some things like walking downhill were still challenging.
Tiger Woods opted to not compete at TPC Southwind after last competing at the Memorial Tournament and finishing T-40 after five months absent from the Tour.
