William McGirt: 2016 Memorial Tournament Winner
It was a long time coming for 2016 Memorial Tournament winner, William McGirt. His first PGA TOUR victory came in his 165th try, and as a bonus, it came under the watchful eye of Tournament Founder and Host, Jack Nicklaus.
The determination never left William as he played the final 22 holes of regulation at Muirfield Village Golf without a bogey to get into a playoff with Jon Curran at 15-under-par.
William beat one of the best fields on the PGA TOUR to claim the Memorial Tournament trophy. The leaderboard featured the top names in golf, including: Dustin Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Rory McIlroy, Jason Day, Phil Mickelson, Matt Kuchar, Jim Furyk and Bubba Watson.
The lessons we can all learn from William is to have patience, work hard and never give up!
