Not entirely surprisingly, the name of Davis Riley appears at the Memorial Tournament. The 26-year-old from Mississippi takes the lead in the 2023 Memorial Tournament, one of the most coveted tournaments on the PGA Tour in the absolute sense.

For him, I ride at -5 with six birdies and a bogey: a very auspicious 67.

Davis Riley, results

A lot of England behind him, with second place by Matt Wallace at -4 and third by Danny Willett at -3. The latter is together with a very large group, which includes Adam Hadwin in Canada, the Irishman Shane Lowry and the USA group with Jordan Spieth, David Lipsky, Austin Eckroat and Mark Hubbard.

There is also a large number of tenths at -2: there are the Americans Patrick Rodgers, Justin Suh and Wyndham Clark, then the Irishman Seamus Power, the Australian Adam Scott, the South Korean Sungjae Im and the Spanish Jon Rahm.

For him, a concrete chance, if he climbed to 1st or 2nd place, to return world number 1 with Scottie Scheffler at the moment 59th at +2. Very bad Francesco Molinari, who runs into a bad day in the most absolute sense of the thing and ends up at +9.

For him 114th place and almost certain cut, with six bogeys and a triple bogey to weigh on the card. The PGA Tour is an organization that curates major professional golf tours in the United States. It is based in Ponte Vedra Beach, a suburb of Jacksonville, Florida.

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. The name then officially changed to "PGA Tour" in 1975.

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 becomes "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.
