Who has best shot in Open tuneup?

USATSI_16121853

Patrick Cantlay won his second Memorial Tournament in three years in a playoff over Collin Morikawa and got home for his backers at 22-1. Cantlay's victory will not have an official asterisk but will at least be partially remembered for Jon Rahm being forced to withdraw from the event after 54 holes because of a positive COVID-19 test. Rahm, who was the defending champion, held a six-stroke lead at 18 under par and was listed as high as a -1200 favorite to close the deal on Sunday. However, as he was coming off the 18th green, he was informed of the positive test and was forced out of the event. Rahm was the clear class of last week's field, but Cantlay played some excellent golf and was in contention for the first time in four months since back-to-back top-3 finishes at the American Express and at Pebble Beach in late January/early February. Cantlay was second, behind Rahm, for Strokes Gained: Tee-To-Green, third for SG: Around The Green, fourth for SG: Off-The-Tee and sixth for SG: Approach. He now finds himself back in the OWGR top 10 rankings as he jumps from 15th to seventh with the win at Muirfield Village.
