The PGA Tour is doubly round this week – the second WGC tournament of the year takes place at the same time as the Barracuda Championship. The professionals of the European Tour are playing in the UK Swing again in Great Britain and also on the PGA Tour Champions and the Korn Ferry Tour. Overview of the week.

PGA Tour: FedEx St. Jude Invitational and Barracuda Championship

A busy week lies ahead of those responsible for the PGA Tour. Two events will be held: the FedEx St. Jude Invitational, the second tournament of the elite World Golf Championships Series (WGC) and the Barracuda Championship. In the latter, especially the players who did not get a place in the selected field of the WGC tournament play along. The FedEx St. Jude invitation tournament takes place at TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee. Defending champion Brooks Koepka will do everything it can to build on last year. He will compete with everything that has rank and name: The world number one Jon Rahm, Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and many other top players are part of the game.
