 width=The PGA Tour is set for its final event before the U.S. Open as players head to Memphis, Tennessee for the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Ben Crane ended a long, winless drought last year when he beat out Troy Merritt by one shot at Tournament Players Club at Southwind. Crane had not won since the 2011 McGladrey Classic. The victory was the fifth of Crane's career and he has not won since.

Crane will give it another go this week as he looks to successfully defend his title.

While many are taking this week off in preparation for the U.S. Open, there are still a number of big names in the field, including WGC-Cadillac Championship winner Dustin Johnson. He serves as the highest ranked player in the field at No. 7.

Phil Mickelson is looking to get one more tournament under his belt as well before heading to the U.S. Open, a major title that has eluded him throughout his career.
