DUBLIN, OH (WCMH) — It’s hard to believe he’s just 24 years old, yet Jordan Spieth has already achieved elite status in golf.

With three victories in majors and a world ranking of #3, Spieth’s become a major attraction for a golf tournament. 

Tuesday the Memorial Tournament announced Spieth will return to Dublin for the 5th straight year. He’s aiming to win at Muirfield Village for the first time. 

Rickie Fowler’s been close at Muirfield, but he’s also seeking his first win. Fowler will also play next week, adding to the world-class field which already includes Tiger Woods, Dustin Johnson, Jason Day and Rory McIlroy. Fowler has won more than $32M on tour in his career and has won four times on the PGA Tour. 

Returning to the Memorial this year is former British Open champion Henrik Stenson. Stenson has not played at Muirfield Village in five years and he’s never finished better than 31st in a tournament there, but he’s a former FedEx Cup champion and the 14th ranked player in the world. 

The final tournament field will be announced by the PGA Tour Friday evening.
