TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee will host the 2022 FedEx St. Jude Championship. A field of 121 of the 125 players who qualified for this event will golf and then be trimmed down to just 70 at the end of the day on Sunday. Only those 70 will move on to next week’s BMW Championship. Therefore, the stakes are very high.
This event has a record purse of $15 million, with a cool $2.7 million going to the winner. Tony Finau happens to be the defending champion and he’s coming off the best stretch of golf in his entire career: two consecutive victories at the 3M Open and Rocket Mortgage Championship. There’s no one hotter than him right now. Others like Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas, Jon Rahm, Jordan Spieth, Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele highlight the star-studded field for what should be a lot of quality golf on this Par-70, 7,243-yard course.
