Preview: FedEx St. Jude Classic 2012

When: June 7-10

Where: TPC Southwind

Defending champion: Harrison Frazar

Purse: $5.6 million (with $1,008,000 to the winner)

Players of note: #1 Rory McIlroy, #17 Zach Johnson, Ryder Cup Captain Davis Love, John Daly, Graeme McDowell, Padraig Harrington

Stories to follow:

Scott Verplank: Verplank has battled wrist issues that have forced him to withdraw from 2 tournaments last month and has only made 2 of 6 cuts this year.

Rory McIlroy: Rory is participating in the FedEx St. Jude Classic, just a week before he defends his Open title and has missed cuts in the last two starts.

John Daly: Daly, a native of nearby Arkansas, is always a player to watch.  This party guy will probably not be playing at 100% with all the nightlife surrounding the Classic, but he’s guaranteed to produce some sort of drama whether it be on or off the course.
