The WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational gets underway on Thursday in Memphis. The field is loaded with star golfers, led by reigning champion Brooks Koepka, who could desperately use a repeat of his masterful 2019 performance to reinvigorate what has otherwise been an uninspiring season for him.
Koepka is coming off a missed cut and miserable showing at the 3M Open last week, which marked the second missed cut for him in his last five showings since the PGA Tour restarted. For Koepka, the St. Jude Invitational in 2019 was a cherry on top of a remarkable season -- his eighth top-five finish of the season, and his third win on the tour -- so a chance to revive that groove in 2020 at TPC Southwind could be a turning point for him as the PGA Championship fast approaches.
Along with Koepka is a star-studded cadre comprised of the sport's best and brightest competing for a win on tour this week. The field includes new world No. 1 Jon Rahm, who took last week off after winning the Memorial Tournament two weeks ago, as well as major headliners like Rory McIlroy, Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas.
