Woods shoots 70 as Moore leads Memorial after round one

Woods shoots 70 as Moore leads Memorial after round one

It was a disappointing day for Scot Russell Knox, however, who started the day three off the lead to drop into a tie for 25th on three under, while five-time victor Tiger Woods finished a shot further back after a round of 72.

Woods' finish improved his mediocre day as he birdied three of the last five holes to finish the round.

The Irishman will face Germany's Marcel Siem in the last-64, with matches played over nine holes. His regret was a few loose iron shots that led to bogey, especially on the 13th when he hit 9-iron from the fairway into a bunker that led to a careless bogey. The 70 he shot was his lowest opening round at the Memorial since 2012 - which happens to be the last of the five times he won this tournament. While he didn't live up to expectations previous year at this tournament, it's really hard to count him out due to his past success at this venue. Take away a MC at the Zurich Classic which is a team event, Cantlay has finished T9 at The Masters, T3 at the RBC Heritage, and T3 at the PGA Championship. You need to do that for decades. The winning score has been 15-under in three of the last four years and it's fallen between 12-15 deep each of the last six editions. His number at 175/1 is a value for a player that has five career PGA Tour wins, including a win earlier this year in a stacked field at the Genesis Open. Of course, Jack Nicklaus has won his own tournament twice, along with Hale Irwin, Greg Norman, and Tom Watson.

Adam Scott has survived a late stumble and launched himself into weekend contention with a hot second round at the US PGA Tour's Memorial Tournament in Ohio. I never measured it on tour wins. "Absolutely. But you ask Tiger which he would rather win, 82 or 18, I think you might get a different answer".




The 43-year-old Woods, a five-time victor at Memorial, could equal Snead's record of 82 PGA Tour wins with a victory this week at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. So I had four opportunities, ended up off the green on all of them.

The crowds during the final round of the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide at Muirfield Village Golf Club on June 3, 2018 in Dublin, Ohio.

With next month's US Open fast approaching, Woods added this week's Jack Nicklaus-hosted tournament in Dublin Ohio to his schedule in an attempt to hone his game for Pebble Beach.
