PGA – The Memorial Tournament In Ohio Is Underway

Posted on May 31, 2013 in Professional Sports News.

 

Charl Schwartzel fired a 7-under 65 yesterday and has the first-round lead at the Memorial Tournament in Ohio.

With the U.S. Open just two weeks away, many of the top players are in this week’s field.

Scott Piercy is alone in second after carding a 6-under 66, while Kyle Stanley, Charlie Wi, Russell Henley and Josh Teater share third after each opened play with a 5-under 67.

Tiger Woods, the defending champion and a five-time winner of Jack Nicklaus’ tournament, finished with a 1-under 71, while Rory McIlroy’s struggles continued today with a 6-over 78.
