Black & Gold take in the Memorial Golf Tournament

By Cody Sharrett

Josh Williams, Justin Meram, Ethan Finlay, Chad Marshall and Eric Gehrig caught some of the First Round action at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club on Thursday. Along with Brand Ambassador Frankie Hejduk, the players took part in a short Q&A with 610 WTVN and FOX Sports Ohio personality Dave Maetzold before heading to the Nationwide Digital House to shoot a video with our friend Ashleigh Ignelzi.

After the players' media duties were through, they were able to take in some of the tournament play. For some of the players, it was a nice change of pace to be a spectator at a sporting event for once.

"It's unique," Gehrig said. "Golfers carry such an aura about them. It's such a hard sport and there's only a select few who can do it so well. You can't really replace the feeling or the environment of seeing it in real life. It's pretty cool.

"I encourage anyone who hasn't been to a PGA Tour event to definitely get out to see one."
