The June stretch has arrived for golf One And Done pools, and we have one of the biggest remaining events this week. The Memorial has the largest available remaining prize purse, at least until we find out the U.S. Open purse size next week.

It also presents the best remaining opportunity to hit a big prize amount and shoot past entries in your One And Done pool standings.

Let’s go through some things to consider in picking the Memorial.

The Memorial One And Done Pick Strategy: Purse Info

The Memorial has a total prize purse of $20,000,000 with $4,000,000 going to 1st place. It is the last of the player-hosted Signature Events that do feature a cut, as well as a larger prize for 1st place than some of the other Signature Events.

It’s a tournament to go with your best options, subject to also balancing some pick strategy based on your place in the standings, and which of your top options may have higher or lower popularity.
