Ireland's three St Jude amigos

Rory McIlroy will have no trouble recognising his playing partners in the opening two rounds of the FedEx St Jude Classic in Memphis tomorrow and on Friday -- they are Graeme McDowell and Padraig Harrington.

The three Irishmen have all travelled to the event seeking a boost in confidence ahead of the US Open next week.

McIlroy has missed his last three halfway cuts, Harrington is down to 96th in the world and McDowell also made an early exit from his last start at the BMW PGA Championship two weeks ago.
