The PGA Tour moves to the St. Jude Classic, the final event before the US Open. With those on the European Tour competing at the Lyoness Open, join us as we look ahead to both events.

St Jude Classic: in the field

Phil Mickelson – This is the last chance for Phil to find his form ahead of the US Open. Mickelson just needs the US Open crown to complete a career grand slam and a strong performance at the St Jude Classic will be ideal preparation. He has struggled thus far on tour but a player of his quality can never be written off – personal issues aside.

One of Europe’s most inform players, Victor Dubuisson, crosses the pond to the States hoping to go one better than his second placed finish at the Nordea Masters.

The home challenge is fronted by Lee Westwood, Graeme McDowell and Paul Casey who has been playing well. Russell Knox and Martin Laird fly the flag for Scotland.

These are the players expected to challenge come Sunday.


The Lyoness Open: in the field

Joost Luiten – The Dutchman is the defending champion and the favourite to retain his title. However, no one has ever mounted a successful defence of the Lyoness Open, so Luiten may need a bit of luck on his side in Austria.

Hot on his heels will be Miguel Angel Jimenez, looking to bounce back after a disappointing Nordea Masters. The Spaniard has risen ten places this year in the World Rankings, going from 37th spot to No. 27, so he is one of golf’s form players at the moment and is more than capable of victory.

Michael Hoey of Northern Ireland and England’s Robert Rock will feel like they can finish well at the Lyoness, with Scotland’s David Drysdale hoping for the same.


Have a look at some of the favourites for this weekend’s Lyoness Open.
