[ Update: Dustin Johnson was a late withdrawal due to illness]

JUST a week out from the 2015 US Open and a number of participants will be honing their games at the FedEx St Jude Classic at the TPC Southwind in Memphis this week.

With the rest of the game’s top ten preparing elsewhere, world No.7 Dustin Johnson is the highest ranked golfer in the field.

The defending champion is Ben Crane while other featured entrants include Phil Mickelson, Billy Horschel, Paul Casey, Graeme McDowell and Luke Donald.

The Aussie contingent is led by recent tour winner Steven Bowditch, who hasn’t shown much love for this venue in the past, and includes Matt Jones, Aaron Baddeley, Robert Allenby, Cameron Percy, Rod Pampling and Greg Chalmers.

None of those Aussies have a start in the US Open at Chambers Bay next week. Our line-up there is Adam Scott, Jason Day, John Senden, Marc Leishman, Geoff Ogilvy, Marcus Fraser, Kurt Barnes and sectional qualifier Cameron Smith.
