Yesterday the FedEx St. Jude Classic teed off from TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee. This Ron Prichard-designed course opened in 1988 and has been home to the St. Jude Classic since 1989.

In January 2012, TPC Southwind’s championship golf course was ranked No. 23 in Golf World magazine’s Exclusive PGA Tour Course Rankings. With 94 bunkers and ten water hazards, this Southwind was ranked ninth in difficulty out of 51 courses on the PGA Tour in 2011 so accuracy is the name of the game this weekend. Going into the weekend, Phil Mickelson is a favorite because of this.

At the time of posting, #TeamInspiratoGolf member Jamie Donaldson is tied for sixth place with a impressive first-round score of 66. After an exciting playoff between William McGirt and Jon Curran, both #TeamInspiratoGolf members, last weekend at the Memorial Tournament where McGirt came out on top, Inspirato is excited to see who will step up this week.

Follow the members playing this weekend, good luck to all!
