“Once again, we are proud and excited about the field for this year’s Memorial,” Nicklaus said. “We have most of the top players in the world, with a great mix of enormously talented young and veteran players. The response for months from patrons and the Central Ohio community has been extremely positive, and now with this field, we can look forward to another fantastic week at Muirfield Village Golf Club and raising impactful dollars for Nationwide Children’s Hospital and other local charities.”
