Jack Nicklaus confirms he'll play Memorial

Jack Nicklaus will play in the Memorial Tournament next week, he said this week, making him the only golfer to have played in all 30 years in the PGA Tour event he created, hosts and has won twice.

"I have always said that if I am healthy, competitive enough and can contribute to the tournament by being a part of the field, then the Memorial Tournament is the one event I would like to play,'' Nicklaus said. "I have worked at my game the last couple of week, trying to get it in shape to play.

"We'll see what kind of game I bring to Muirfield Village, but I am looking forward to playing.''

Nicklaus, 65, tied for 63rd place last year at the Memorial, finishing with a 1-under 71.

The only other PGA Tour event he has played this year is the Masters, where he missed the cut and then said he was done competing at Augusta National.

Nicklaus also plans to play the Open Championship for the last time at St. Andrews in July. He said that would be his last tournament, although the 18-time major winner has said the Memorial is one tournament he might continue playing.

Nicklaus helped design Muirfield Village and founded the tournament in 1976. It will be played June 2-5, and again features a strong field with defending champion Ernie Els, Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh.
