FedEx St. Jude Classic Monday qualifiers, leaderboard

Alicia Cross

Gaining strokes around-the-green is critical this week, and I think our victor will come from this list of SG:ARG specialists: Ian Poulter, Matt Jones, Cameron Tringale, Rickie Fowler, and Phil Mickelson.

Not the U.S. Open - that's next week - but the St. Jude Classic in Memphis. He apparently won't get a chance for the career Grand Slam this year, either, as Mickelson says he plans to attend his daughter's high school graduation next week.

"I was coaching at an outing", Harrington said. "Obviously, I'm a little biased and have been coming here a long time and playing good golf". When Geiberger became the first TOUR player to shoot 59, it took 14 years before another player could match it - and 39 years before Jim Furyk went a shot lower to set the new mark. Realistically, anything worse than birdie here will feel like a dropped shot. A field of 156 players will tackle TPC Southwind in the final tournament before the focus shifts to Erin Hills for the U.S. Open. This major-winner-in-waiting is likely to enjoy the bulk of his success in the US Open you suspect, with his accurate ball-striking a general precursor to success in the toughest of tests. Plus, wouldn't it be just like Phil to put on a show to increase the chatter about his no-show at the U.S. Open next week. Only 11 times has a player won a major championship the week after winning on the tour, and the last to do it was Rory McIlroy - who won the PGA Championship in 2014 after his victory at the Bridgestone Invitational.

The last thing that I'll point out this week is that it is the week before a major, so results are going to be even more unpredictable than usual.
