It's a decorated field this week as the PGA Tour heads to Jack Nicklaus' back yard for the Memorial Tournament, but there's one name that stands above the rest.

That would be Jon Rahm, who won this event last year and ascended to world No. 1 in the process. The Spaniard put on a clinic over the weekend amid difficult scoring conditions, and he absorbed a late (and highly scrutinized) penalty to still win by three shots. This week he returns as the betting favorite, listed at +1100 by oddsmakers at PointsBet Sportsbook with Jordan Spieth and former champ Bryson DeChambeau next in line, both listed at +1400.

Players this week will face a different test than they're used to at Muirfield Village, with most of the greens redesigned since last year and some formative changes made to a handful of holes. Among those looking to take the title from Rahm will be Spieth, who let the 54-hole lead slip away Sunday at Colonial, and DeChambeau, who won this event in a three-man playoff back in 2018 but missed the cut here in dramatic fashion last year. Joining them will be Rory McIlroy (+1600) and 2019 winner Patrick Cantlay (+2000), while reigning Masters champ Hideki Matsuyama opened at +2500 at the site of his first Tour win back in 2014.

Here's a look at some of the notable odds this week outside Columbus, where a number of big names will make their final start before heading west for the U.S. Open in two weeks:
