Cameron Smith has the singles lead at 8-under after two rounds at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village. The Australian will be looking to add his third title of the year, successfully fending off Jon Ram in the Champions Tour and the toughest course in golf at the Players Championship in March.
This time around, he’s hoping to maintain his slim profit margin over a mixed group of newcomers and veterans on the PGA Tour. Both Cameron Young and Davis Riley are two stranglers adrift and well positioned to take their first win on golf’s biggest stage, as both rookies used to occupy the leaderboards over the weekend in PGA Tour events.
Just one strike behind them, and three from Smith’s lead, is Rory McIlroy, who was last seen inside the top ten at the 2022 PGA Championship. With impressive performances over the past month, the four-time Grand Slam winner has gone without a trophy since last October despite His high level of play.
