Jack Nicklaus

From the very beginning, an annual tournament had been part of Jack Nicklaus' plans for Muirfield Village Golf Club.

The name, Memorial Tournament, followed from Nicklaus' desire to theme the Tournament around a person or persons, living or deceased, who has contributed to the game of golf with conspicuous honor. Tournament dates were secured from the PGA TOUR and, with tremendous fanfare, Jack Nicklaus' lifelong dream became a reality in the spring of 1976.
