DUBLIN — The Memorial Tournament returned to Muirfield Village Golf Club this week and the stars were out in full effect.

Tiger Woods returned to the course Jack Nicklaus built and was joined by future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning in the annual Pro-Am Wednesday.

The star-studded pair gained a lot of the attention and the largest crowds during the annual event.

Some of the biggest names in golf participated in the Pro-Am event, including Phil Mickelson, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas.
