Last year Tiger Woods won his fifth Memorial Tournament after entering the final round trailing by four shots. He fired a final-round 67, including a chip-in on 16 to win his then 73rd PGA TOUR title. He currently has 78 wins, only four behind Sam Snead’s all-time record of 82. Woods returns to defend his title in one of the strongest fields of the year that includes McIlroy, Scott, Rose, Snedeker, Luke Donald, Matt Kuchar, Lee Westwood and Keegan Bradley.
