the Memorial Tournament Honorees

The Memorial Tournament is themed each year around a person, living or dead, who has contributed to the game of golf. This was Jack Nicklaus' idea as a contribution to perpetuating achievements of the game's greatest individuals. The honoree is selected by the Captain's Club, a group of statesmen who act independently of the tournament organization, but who also advise on player invitations and the conduct of the event generally.
