Viktor Hovland (71 71 69 70) beats Denny McCarthy (71 72 68 70) in the playoffs and wins The Memorial Tournament in the USA. In Dublin, Ohio, both closed the 72 regulation holes with a total of 281 (-7) strokes , but what made the difference in the play-off was the greater regularity of the Norwegian who was enough to hit the hole in par to make its contention.

Another great final comeback for Scottie Scheffler. The world number 1, with a final round in 67 (-5) out of a total of 282 (-6), recovered 29 positions, finishing 3rd. At Muirfield Village GC (par 72), Hovland celebrated a fourth career PGA Tour win in 91 contests played.

The company earned him 3,600,000 dollars against a total prize pool of 20,000,000, and allowed him to move from 7th to 5th position in the world ranking.

Even if the statistic takes into account the two statements in the Hero World Challenge (in 2021 and 2022), an unofficial event of the PGA Tour. The PGA Tour became its own organization in 1968, when it split from the PGA of America, which is now primarily an association of golf professionals, such as instructors and club managers.

Tournament players first formed their own organization, the Association of Professional Golfers (APG). Later, in 1968, the players abolished the APG and agreed to operate as the PGA “Tournament Players Division”, a fully autonomous division of the PGA, overseen by a new 10-member Tournament Policy Board.

In 1981, it had a marketing dispute with the PGA of America and decided to officially change its name. From the end of August of that year it became “TPA Tour”, which stands for “Tournament Players Association”. The dispute was resolved within seven months and the name of the tour reverted to being “PGA Tour” in March 1982.
