WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational is a challenging tournament and golfers have been competing all the season in the Challenge. The event will award the winner $1 million, and it is every golfer’s wish to grab the million.
The 11th-ranked golfer in the world, Schauffele is out of contention for the $1 million prize. He was at TPC Southwind during a practice round ahead of Thursday’s WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational with Kaiser. The two were sizing up their second shot on the par-5 No. 16.
Schauffele believes the second shot is where all the risk and reward is on (No. 16).
The race remains tight with two events remaining. Brooks Koepka, Jason Day and Dustin Johnson are tied for the top spot, while Ian Poulter, Jason Kokrak and Justin Thomas are still within striking distance. Koepka said that the competition coming down to the wire adds to the intrigue as the regular season nears its end.
For one to be qualified as the winner in WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, he must complete a minimum of 40 rounds at designated tournaments. In this regard, the challenge takes a player’s two best scores from every participating event, and the player with the lowest average score to par on these holes will win.
To win the $1 million prize this weekend in Memphis, therefore, could depend on how the competing golfers manage No. 16. The final event is the Wyndham Championship August.
