Mickelson withdrew from his last tournament, but had been playing steady prior to that. He finished 26th or better in his last six tournaments prior to The Memorial.

Watson has won just the one major. He has played in the U.S. Open five times in his career and finished in the top 10 once, when he took fifth in 2007. He has missed the cut in two of his five appearances. Mickelson has won four majors in his career, but never won the U.S. Open. He has placed second in this tournament five times in his career. In a total of 21 appearances in this event, Mickelson has finished in the top 10 nine times.
