It’s finally tournament week in the 901! Everywhere you turn, you hear and see people either talking about the WGC FedEx St. Jude Invitational or preparing the city for the influx of worldwide visitors that will transcend to Memphis this week. Not only will the action on the course be heart-stopping with 48 out of the top 50 golfers in the world, but also the party throughout the week will be one for the ages.
So, what are three things golf fans can watch out for this week?
First, World Class Golf all week long. Phil Mickelson, Bryson Dechambeau, Brooks Koepka, Justin Thomas, and Gold Medalist, Xander Schauffele, are just five of the top golfers making their way to the 901 this week. Fans will be able to watch these guys compete for a World Championship. If seeing 48 of the top golfers in the world doesn’t get you excited enough for this week, then don’t keep reading this article because you need help.
Second, no matter where you turn this week at TPC Southwind, you will see and hear the spectacular stories of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Since 1962 St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been the worldwide leader in pediatric children’s cancer research. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will be on center stage this week, and there will be plenty of chances for you and your group to learn about the amazing work they do for the kids.
Lastly, no matter who you are or where you come from, you can watch out for the massive celebration and party that will take place this week at TPC Southwind. Memphians, like many others across the world, have longed for a day where they can gather together and celebrate life again. That day is now, and the party begins on Wednesday, with patrons who will make their way through the gates and celebrate the biggest weekend in golf with friends and family alike.
Gates will open to the general public on Wednesday morning starting at 7:00 with practice rounds. Then the Championship rounds will start on Thursday morning before concluding a little after five central time on Sunday evening.
Remember, Hush Y’all, and enjoy a Memphis summer tradition unlike any other.
