SuperSport viewers on DStv can look forward to seeing all the action from the PGA Tour’s WGC-Fedex St. Jude International at the TPC Southwind in Memphis, Tennessee from Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 August 2021.

SuperSport is the ultimate destination for Golf fans, with an unparalleled selection of action from around the world.

This year marks the 23rd WGC Invitational event and will see reigning champion Justin Thomas looking to defend his crown. The 28-year-old American claimed the 2020 title by three strokes ahead of Daniel Berger, Brooks Koepka, Tom Lewis and Phil Mickelson for his second WGC-Fedex St. Jude International triumph.

Thomas says that the great Tiger Woods – who has won a record eight WGC-Fedex St. Jude International titles but will not be present at this year’s edition – is always giving him advice, something that is sure to continue this week.

“Many times I’ll hit a bad shot or miss a short putt and he’s [Woods] the first person I get something from. He keeps me humble and I think that’s why we have the friendship that we do,” said Thomas.

Former world number one Dustin Johnson will also be present, with the 37-year-old feeling like he is not far away from returning to his best: “Things are starting to turn around a little bit. I felt like I haven’t had a great season so far, but I feel like the game, it’s starting to come back into form,” he said. “I feel like the iron and wedge play is what I just haven’t been as sharp with. That’s starting to come around.”

The field will also include The Open Championship winner Collin Morikawa, who recently became the first player to win two different majors in his first attempt and joined Tiger Woods as the only players to win The Open and PGA Championship before age 25.

Rory McIlroy will also be present at the WGC-Fedex St. Jude International, while US Open champion Jon Rahm withdrew to ensure he was focused on his bid for glory at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, only to then return a positive Covid-19 test and be unable to compete.

TPC Southwind is a 7,244 yard par 70 course. The purse for the WGC-Fedex St. Jude International is $10.5million.
