Tiger Woods stands 27th after First Round of Memorial Tournament six shots back

DUBLIN, O. — The first round of the Memorial Tournament is in the books and the leader is not Tiger Woods, but he’s only six shots behind the leader.

Woods shot a 1-under 71. He has opened the Memorial with a round at par-or-better in 13 of his 14 years in playing Muirfield Village. The only other time that Woods opened the tournament in this Columbus, Ohio suburb, with a 71 was in 2000 and he won.

The 37-year-old Woods, the defending champion, made five birdies and four bogeys.

Woods is six shots behind first round leader Charl Schwartzel who was brilliant with a 7-under-par 65, one shot ahead of Scott Piercy.

Woods was not pleased with his performance on Thursday. He hit 11 of 14 fairways, including all seven on the back nine, but struggled with other parts of his game. He needed 30 putts after hitting 13 greens in regulation. He even acknowledged that 53-year-old Fred Couples, who plays regularly on the Champions Tour played better than he did.

Couples, who likes playing with Woods, carded a 2-under-par 70 and is tied for 13th.

The newest golfing phenom, Guan Tianlang, has announced that he will not try to qualify for the United States Open.

The United States Golf Association informed the media that the 14-year-old from China has withdrawn from the sectional qualifier on June 3 in Dallas, Texas.

Guan informed the USGA shortly after he received a sponsor’s exemption to play in the Memorial Tournament, which ends on June 2.

The USGA had offered to move Guan’s qualifier to help with travel logisitics, but the teenager declined the invitation.

Tiger Woods tied Jack Nicklaus for all-time PGA Tour wins with 73 at the Memorial Tournament back in June.

With his latest win on Sunday, he now has 74 wins and has passed his golfing idol. He is now 8 wins behind Sam Snead who has 82.

Woods held off  Bo Van Pelt on the back nine of the Blue Course at Congressional Country Club on Sunday to win the AT&T National in Bethesda, Maryland.

In this comeback season for Woods, she has risen to number-4 in the world golf rankings behind Luke Donald, Rory McIlroy and Lee Westwood.

With his final-round of 2-under par 69, Woods beat the scrappy Van Pelt by two shots and became the first golfer to earn three wins on Tour this season. Adam Scott finished third at 5-under-par 67 on Sunday.

In his career, this is the 12th time that Woods has won at least three times. He has three wins in his last seven starts.

Woods went 41 holes without a bogey until needing six strokes to get off the par-5 16th. He took the outright lead by making a 6-foot putt for par on the 17th as Van Pelt made bogey. Bogeys on the last three holes hurt Van Pelt’s chances.

There was a six-week period this year, when PGA Tour golfer Dustin Johnson could not swing a golf club, more less win a tournament.

He returned to the Tour after the six-week hiatus, and competed well in the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, where he tied for 19th place.

The injury occured in early March at his home while lifting a jet ski. The result was a pulled muscle in his lower right back.

Johnson seems to be back on his game as he won the St. Jude Classic on Sunday in Memphis, Tennessee, in his second event. He carded a 4-under-par 66 to hold off John Merrick by one stroke.

Merrick remains winless in 154 PGA Tour starts. He shot a 69 on Sunday.

Davis Love III shot a 69 and tied for third with Nick O’Hern (69), Chad Campbell (68) and Ryan Palmer (66) at 273.

Rory McIlroy shot a 69 and tied with three others at 274.
