Format: Stroke Play
Defending Champion: Daniel Berger
TV Coverage: GOLF Channel and CBS
Daniel Berger will try to go back-to-back-to back when the tournament gets underway June 7-10, 2018. Berger looks to win for the third consecutive year, something that has never been done in the history of the event.
Since 1958, the PGA Tour has been coming to Memphis, Tennessee for the FedEx St. Jude Classic, making it the longest running golf tournament on the PGA Tour.
In 1969, entertainer Danny Thomas agreed to lend his name to the tournament in exchange for his St Jude’s Children’s Hospital to become the primary charity. That sponsorship lasted until 1986 when FedEx became the title sponsor.
The layout measures 7,239 yards and plays to a par 70. The original layout was designed by former U.S. Open champions Hubert Green and Fuzzy Zoeller and later tweaked by Loren Roberts in 2004. The par-3 11th hole gets all the attention, but hole No. 18 is where the tournament usually declares a winner.
The event is played one week before the U.S. Open, and annually draws a great betting field. Jack Nicklaus headlines the list of past champions. Lee Trevino won it three times and Dave Hill won it a record four. Other champions include Raymond Floyd, Gary Player, Fred Couples, Greg Norman, Lee Westwood and Dustin Johnson.
Preview: Two-time defending champion Daniel Berger joins fan favorite Phil Mickelson, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka as this week’s headliners for the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Berger looks to become just the sixth player in the last four decades to three-peat on the PGA Tour. Mickelson gets his final tune-up ahead of next week’s U.S. Open and has finished T11 or better in his last five starts in Memphis. Johnson is a threat to win anytime he pegs it up and Koepka arrives off a runner-up finish at Colonial. Continue...

The St. Jude Classic was founded in 1958, making it one of the longest running events on the PGA Tour.
Billy Maxwell won the inaugural event and collected $2,800. The tournament is held in support of St Jude Children's Research Hospital and has attracted many big names over the years including Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, Curtis Strange, Nick Price, Greg Norman and Tom Kite.
In 2007 and 2008, the tournament was named the Stanford St. Jude Championship.
The name was changed to the St. Jude Classic in 2009.
That same year, Brian Gay went wire-to-wire to win his second PGA Tour event of the year, finishing five strokes ahead of runners-up David Toms and Bryce Molder.
Daniel Berger won the FedEx St. Jude Classic for a second year running. He posted a superb final round 66 to end the week on 10-under-par, one better than his nearest rivals Whee Kim and Charl Schwartzel.
Berger began the final day three shots back of the leaders, Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain, Stewart Cink and Ben Crane and it looked set to be a testing day for the American when he missed the first green and duffed the resulting pitch shot. But he rallied by holing the next one for a par and there was no looking back from that point.
Berger went on to post a bogey-free 66 to claim the title by a shot. He became the fourth back-to-back winner of the St. Jude Classic, the first since David Toms achieved the feat in 2003 and 2004.
Charl Schwartzel and Whee Kim finished the week tied for second place. Schwartzel was left to rue a poor third round of 74. He responded well with a 66 on Sunday but came up just one shot shy. Kim finished with a 67.
