Justin Rose returns to Muirfield Village on June 5 to defend his 2010 Memorial Golf Tournament victory, but this season has not turned out as well as he likely hoped it would. He currently sits 30th in the FedEx Cup standings after finishing fifth in 2010. He has finished in the top 10 only three times this season, including a tie for third place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Will he be able to find the form that also led him to a win at the 2010 AT&T National and before he lost his chance at making the European Ryder Cup?

Rose will tee off on Hole 10 with Keegan Bradley and Bubba Watson at 7:53 a.m. ET on Thursday. Bradley, a PGA Tour rookie, enters the tournament on the heels of a victory last Sunday at the 2011 HP Byron Nelson Championship, his first Tour win. Watson has picked up two Tour victories this year, most recently winning the 2011 Zurich Classic in a playoff.
Right after Rose's group finishes, Luke Donald, new No. 1 in the World Golf Rankings, will lead a trio that includes Phil Mickelson and 2011 Masters winner Charl Schwartzel at 8:04 a.m.
Television coverage for the tournament takes place on the Golf Channel for the first two days of the tournament from 3-6 p.m. ET, while CBS covers round 3 on Saturday from 3-6 p.m. and round 4 on Sunday 2:30-6 p.m.
