The 2020 World Golf Championships – FedEx St Jude Invitational is all set to happen this week at TPC Southwind in Memphis. Last year, Brooks Koepka win the event, but he’s been shaky this season, still struggling to find his old dominant form. With that being said, here are some of the players you should be watching out for this week.

Where: TPC Southwind, Memphis, TN
When: July 30 to August 2, 2020
TV Broadcast: GOLFTV
Rory McIlroy (+1200)
After returning to action and finished with a T32 at the Memorial Tournament, McIlroy skipped the 3M Open and is now looking to make a splash this week at TPC Southwind, where he’s two top-seven finishes in three starts. Last year, he finished fourth at the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational. Seven years prior to that, he went seventh at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. McIlroy also owns three World Golf Championships. This season, he has a win (World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions) and six top 10s in 10 starts.
Jon Rahm (+1100)
Rahm will walk into the TPC Southwind with his head high. After all, he just became the No. 1 overall player in the world following his win at the Memorial Tournament. That was his first win of the season and one that was a long time coming, considering that he already had four top 10s in nine starts this season before that event. At the same time, it cut his disappointing streak of three sub-25 finishes. Rahm finished seventh last year at the World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, which was held at TPC Southwind, also.
Daniel Berger (+2800)
Berger didn’t waste time in zooming to a win after the restart of the PGA Tour, as he won the Charles Schwab Challenge. He followed that up with a T3 at the RBC Heritage. He missed the cut at the Memorial Tournament, but so what? Remember, he’s had two wins at the TPC Southwind since 2016. He topped the field at the 2016 and 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic.
Tommy Fleetwood (+3300)
Fleetwood missed the cut at the 3M Open, which was not a great way to announce his return to season play. But that could also just be rust for the English golfer, who finished third at the Honda Classic last March. Fleetwood could be on the rebound, as he played well last year at the 2019 World Golf Championships-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, finishing solo fourth with a -11 score.
Viktor Hovland (+2800)
Hovland caught the attention of many when he finished third at the Workday Charity Open, but failed to sustain his momentum. In the next start, he finished with a T48 at the Memorial Tournament, firing a 77 and a 79 in the third and fourth round, respectively. Still, his body of work this season is respectable. He has three top 10s and seven top 25s in 15 starts. And by the way, he also won the Puerto Rico Open back in February.
Mackenzie Hughes (+15,000)
Hughes has missed the cut seven times in 17 starts this season, but he’s been much better of late. He’s not been cut in any of his last four starts, a stretch in which he also finished inside the top 6 twice.
Joaquin Niemann (+8000)
Niemann has three top 10s and a win (A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier), but he’s also been cut six times in 17 starts. He was cut in his last start at the Memorial Tournament.
Rory McIlroy wins the 2020 World Golf Championships – FedEx St Jude Invitational.
