DUBLIN, Ohio -- Jack Nicklaus welcomes the PGA Tour to his home course this week at Muirfield Village for the Memorial Tournament.

Last year, Matt Kuchar closed with a 4-under 68 to beat Kevin Chappell by two strokes for his second win of the 2013 season and sixth of his career.

Kuchar is having another strong season with nine top-10 finishes, including his seventh tour win at the Heritage. He finished second in Houston and shared fifth at the Masters.

New world No. 1 Adam Scott will join Kuchar at Muirfield this week. Scott took over the top spot in the world rankings last Monday, and rallied to win at Colonial over the weekend. They are two of seven players ranked in the top 25 in the world who are playing this week.

Jason Day, who has been out since the Masters with a thumb injury, is hoping to return to action this week.

Nicklaus invited Michael Kim, Justin Thomas and Justin Lower, who are all former winners of the Jack Nicklaus Award as top collegiate golfer.

Golf Channel will have full television coverage the first two days and early action on the weekend before handing off to CBS.

The PGA Tour heads to Memphis next week for the St. Jude Classic, where Harris English held off Phil Mickelson and Scott Stallings by two strokes last year.
