This week the PGA Tour stops in Muirfield Village, Ohio just outside of Columbus for The Memorial. Each year this tournament draws the best golfers from all over the world as they come to pay their respects to the host Jack Nicklaus.

Tiger Woods is the defending champion and he loves playing this course. He has won The Memorial five times and he is the heavy favorite to hoist the trophy on Sunday. Woods owns 73 PGA Tour wins putting him in a tie with his host Mr.  Nicklaus, both trail Sam Snead who owns the record with 82 victories.

So you see if Woods can win at The Memorial come Sunday there might be a bit of an uncomfortable moment.  Nicklaus would hand Woods the trophy and at the same time slip to third on the all time wins list. It should make for some fun golf to watch this weekend.
