Every PGA tournament I've watched so far this year has at least 1 of the top 5 world ranked golfers right at the top of every leader board. Most of the time leading, or sharing a lead. But this Memorial tournament you have to scroll down on the leader board just to start to see some names you recognize, like Johnson, Day, Mickelson, Rory. And then scroll wayyyy down to see Jordan Spieth.
Granted Dustin Johnson and Jason Day are only 3 and 4 shots out of the lead respectively, going into the final day. Still, makes me wonder, is there something about Memorial that's different from other PGA tournaments?
Do they not care to win it as much, so they (top ranked guys) approach it like a glorified training exercise? Or is it just a easier course, and a crowded field of talented guys all by design crowd the top? I mean -15 through 3 rounds for top spot means the course has to be on the easier side, as far as pros are concerned.
