Watch: Woods struggles out of the gate at Memorial


Tiger Woods entered the opening round of the Memorial Tournament to increased expectations. Coming off a solid weekend in his last start, at The Players, and being a five-time winner at Muirfield Village, it figured Woods would contend from the start this week.

That didn’t happen.

Beginning on the back nine, Woods bogeyed the par-5 11th following a poor tee shot.

He then made double bogey on the par-5 14th after hitting his tee shot out of bounds.

A missed par putt on the par-3 16th dropped him to 4 over through seven holes.

But he did manage to get on shot back on the par-4 17th.

Woods failed to make his birdie putt on the par-4 18th and turned in 3-over 39.

Tiger birdied the par-4 second, but gave it back with a bogey at the par-3 fourth. He then made birdie on Nos. 5 and 6 to get back to 1 over for the tournament.

And he made it three-in-a-row with a birdie at the par-5 seventh. Five birdies, three bogeys and one double, with two to play.
