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 Captains 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. The 2022 Honoree is Ben Crenshaw.

See below for details regarding the 2021 Memorial Honoree Ceremony.
