2020 Memorial tee times: Justin Rose can recall better days

The Englishman, a former winner at Memorial, has posted 7 top-10 results in 13 starts at Muirfield Village, which should help him envision an end to a streak of 2 straight missed cuts

7: Number of top-10 finishes, including a victory in 2010, that England’s Justin Rose has posted in 13 appearances at the Memorial Tournament. Rose, who will turn 40 on July 30, could use some good mental imagery when play begins Thursday at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. He missed cuts in his past two starts after a T-3 in the season restart at Colonial and a T-14 one week later at the RBC Heritage. In addition to his 2010 victory in host Jack Nicklaus’ event, Rose posted two runner-up finishes at the Memorial, in 2008 and 2015. He has slipped to 16th in the Official World Golf Ranking after having spent most of last year among the top four, including nine weeks at No. 1. Rose will be paired with American Phil Mickelson, who is making his 20th start at the Memorial, and 2019 British Open champion Shane Lowry of Ireland (tee times).
