When Is the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational 2019? Where to Watch, Live Stream, TV Channel, Course and Odds

With the last major of the season in the history books, the attention now turns to the World Golf Championships.

For the first since its inception in 1999, the WGC will be held in Memphis, Tennessee, on the same course that has held the St. Jude Classic for the last six decades.

Following his triumph at the Open Championship, Shane Lowry will not be traveling to Memphis as he continues his celebrations in Ireland. The Irishman, however, is one of the few notable exceptions in a field including 46 of the world's 50 top-ranked players.

Here's everything you need to know to keep up with the action.

Who is in the field?

With Shane Lowry still busy celebrating his triumph at the Open Championship the most recent major winner will not play in Memphis and neither will Tiger Woods.

Tommy Fleetwood, who finished second at Royal Portrush behind Lowry is in the field, along with world number one Brooks Koepka, who has finished second and third in past appearances at Southwind. The Floridian finished tied for fourth at the Open Championship and will be eager to claim a first win at the WGC.

World number two Dustin Johnson, who won the FedEx St. Jude Classic last year, is also taking part as is four-time major winner Rory McIlroy, who is looking to rebound from the major disappointment of missing the cut at the Open.

Defending FedEx Cup champion Justin Rose is also in the field, as is defending U.S. Open Gary Woodland and defending WGC-Invitational Justin Thomas.

Three-time major winner returns to Memphis for the first time since 2010 as he looks for a first PGA Tour win since triumphing at the Open in 2017, while world number seven Bryson DeChambeau and world number eight Jon Rahm will also be in the mix.

Odds

According to VegasInsider, Dustin Johnson is a 9/1 favorite to defend the FedEx St. Jude title, followed by Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy at 10/1.

Jon Rahm and Justin Thomas are at 12/1 and 16/1 respectively, while Xander Schauffele is a 20/1 shot. Justin Rose, Patrick Cantlay and Tommy Fleetwood are 22/1 outsiders.
