PGA TOUR Rolls into Memphis


Stanford St. Jude ChampionshipThe PGA TOUR moves to Memphis this week for the final tune-up before the second major of the year, the U.S. Open.
Last year, Woody Austin fired an 8-under 62 to come from behind and pick up his first tour win since 2004. Third-round leader Adam Scott stumbled to a 5-over 75 and ended alone in seventh.
The win helped propel Austin to a berth on the U.S. Presidents Cup squad.
With the U.S. Open next week, only two of the top-10 players and six of the top-25 in the world rankings are slated to play this week at the TPC Southwind.
Heading that list is world No. 4 Ernie Els. The last time Els played this event was in 1995 when he tied for 26th, the year after he won the first of his two U.S. Open titles.
Also teeing it up is last week's winner Kenny Perry. The Kentucky native will play this week, but skip the U.S. Open.
The Golf Channel will cover action the first two days before handing off to CBS for the final two rounds. Next week is the U.S. Open, where Angel Cabrera is expected to defend his title on the South Course at Torrey Pines.
