Golfing World News: May 28

The PGA Tour takes centre-stage this week as some of the world’s best battle it out at Muirfield Village for The Memorial Tournament. Both Adam Scott and Rory McIlroy were winners this past Sunday, and they’ve been paired together alongside Jason Day.

Day returns to action for the first time since The Masters after overcoming a thumb injury, and wife Ellie was certainly excited to see her husband play alongside some esteemed company.

The Memorial is just two weeks away from the second major of the year - the U.S. Open, and as a result the tournament sees some big names take part.

Justin Rose, last year’s US Open champion and winner of The Memorial in 2010, will be finalising his preparations for Pinehurst but before he set off for Ohio, the Englishman had to return the U.S. Open trophy and took one last snap of the silverware.

He’ll now have to become the first person since Curtis Strange in 1989 to successfully defend the title, if he’s going to have it back in his possession in a couple of week’s time!

Now, last week we told you about 11-year-old Lucy Li who qualified for the women’s US Open at Pinehurst, and now a video has surfaced of the Californian youngster.

Posted by PGA instructor Jim McLean three-years ago, it shows Li, then aged 8, hitting 20 balls in a "rapid-fire" driver drill.

As you can see, even then, you could tell she would be a star!

We’ll have more from the Golfing World tomorrow, in the meantime follow us on Twitter @golfingworldtv and we’re on Facebook and Instagram too. Thanks for watching.
