When European golf fans hear the words Medinah Country Club, images of Ian Poulter holing putts on Saturday and that magnificent come back on the Sunday come to mind, those Ryder Cup matches will live long in the memory and I am sure the European Tour players teeing it up here this week will have an extra bounce in their step.
The club was founded in 1924 by the Medinah Shriners (The Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine) and by the late 1920s had approximately 1,500 golfing and social members. The first golf course was opened for play in September 1925, this was followed by Course 2 in 1926, and finally Course 3 in 1928. All three courses were originally designed by Scotsman Tom Bendelow, but American golf course designers A.W. Tillinghast and Harry Collis played a major role in the redesign changes in the 1930s when they were commissioned to toughen up the number 3 course.
The imposing club house was designed by Richard G. Schmid, who was a Shriner and charter member of the club. The Great Depression of the 1930s brought severe financial hardship and many members left. The club responded by waiving initiation fees, lowering dues, holding fundraising events, which including hosting professional golf tournaments.
There have been several major redesigns, Roger Packard's 1986 redesigned in preparation for the 1990 U.S. Open which brought substantial changes, this was followed by Rees Jones work in preparation for the 2006 PGA Championship, which extended Course 3 to 7,561 yards, the longest golf course in major championship history at the time. Watch out for Medinah’s three iconic waterfront par 3 holes at the 2nd, 13th, and 17th.

My tips to Win:
With two runners-up finishes in this event over the last two years I am sure Justin Rose 18/1 – with BetFred – will be looking to go one better this week. Justin won this event back in 2011, so I am sure he will have positive vibes from that. I am also sure a lot of the European players will have a buzz when they arrive here and memories of that last day at the Ryder Cup and the miracle of Medinah, which can only be an added incentive in this penultimate FedEx Cup play-off event.
I am going to stick with Adam Scott 25/1 – with WilliamHill – who had a storming final round 65 at the weekend to move up twelve places and into the Top 5 at The Northern Trust. He admitted in the interview after that he started the week sluggish but was happy with the way he has been striking the ball. Adam will also have a lot of positive memories of the last time he teed it up at Medinah CC in the PGA Championship finishing in third place firing a final round 67.
It’s hard to not think that Ian Poulter 60/1 – with BetFred – will have a broad smile as he comes through the gates here, the man who dragged the European Team off the floor on the Saturday during that Ryder Cup weekend, add that to his Top 10 finish at the weekend in The Northern Trust and I am sure he can’t wait for this to start.
One European player who didn’t make that Ryder Cup team is Paul Casey 45/1 – with BetFair – but he does have two runner-up finishes in this event, strangely enough losing both times to Dustin Johnson. Paul didn’t play at the weekend in preparation for these last two FedEx Cup play-off events, but he does come into this week with a win, a runner-up and three other Top 5s so far this year
I was surprised to see Kevin Kisner 80/1 – with UniBet – this far down the betting odds and he seemed to go under the radar at weekend with his final round 68 to move five places up the leaderboard. That maybe because Kevin did open up with a first round 64 but slowly went out of contention. Kisner has gradually improved in each event over his last four starts and he will be looking to keep that progression going this week to challenge and make that final FedEx Cup play-off event.
As always good luck
