It’s that time of year again as the Golf world will turn its eyes to the 901, where the city of Memphis will take centerstage of the world as the FedEx St. Jude Championship comes to town. A summer tradition as old as the city of Memphis, the FedEx St. Jude Championship brings worldwide exposure to the proud city of Memphis. For years, the FedEx St. Jude Championship has brought the city of Memphis millions of dollars in revenue, world-class athletes, and memories that withstood the etching of time.
This year’s Tournament is no different. Heading into the Tournament, Sports fans around the globe are starving for the latest storybook weekend on the PGA Tour.
Sure, there’s a cloud of uncertainty surrounding the PGA Tour and the new LIV Golf league. Yet, as the FedEx St. Jude Championship approaches, a sense of excitement and renewal seems to have taken precedent over the event. That sense of excitement could come from the magnitude of the Tournament this season, as the FedEx St. Jude Championship is the first leg of the 2022 FedEx Playoffs. Last season, the FedEx St. Jude Championship was marked as a part of the World Golf Championships, but with an upgrade this season, the Memphis event is one of the biggest PGA events of the season.
Golf fans will be able to witness greatness as nearly 100 Golfers from around the world come to Memphis to call the 901 their home for a week.
Heading into the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship, Tony Finau seems to be the Golfer that guys on the PGA Tour seem to be chasing. Finau comes to Memphis having won two out of his last three starts. Finau impressed the Golf world by having a ridiculously good month of July by becoming the first player in three years to win back-to-back events. As the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship approaches this week, expect to see Tony Finau in contention come this weekend.
Elsewhere around the field, Scottie Scheffler, Patrick Cantlay, Xander Schauffele, Cameron Young, Justin Thomas, and many others will be heading to Memphis this week and will be bringing their talents with them to TPC Southwind and FedEx Jude Championship.

A fan favorite, Phil Mickelson, will not be in attendance this year as Lefty, like many of his counterparts, decided to chase the money in the new LIV Golf League. Per the PGA rulebook, those Golfers who left the PGA will not be allowed to compete in PGA sanctioned events such as the FedEx St. Jude Championship.
However, this week will be a special week for the Golf fans of the 901; there’s nothing more that says summertime in Memphis, Tennessee, than the annual Golf Tournament at TPC Southwind. Events like the FedEx St. Jude Championship only come around once a year; get out to TPC Southwind and enjoy the show.
