It’s been five months since Tiger Woods teed it up on the PGA Tour, but the 15-time major champion is back in action this week at the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
Woods opened with an up-and-down 1-under 71 on Thursday and fell apart on Friday with a 4-over 76. He walked off the course one shot outside the then-projected cut, but the line moved, giving Woods a spot in the weekend and continuing his streak of 18 made cuts at Jack Nicklaus’ track.
The 82-time winner on Tour tees off at 8 a.m. ET alongside Brooks Koepka. Follow along for shot-by-shot updates on Moving Day.
Hole 2 – Par 4
B-e-a-utiful strike here from Tiger off the tee finding the right fairway. From there he’s slightly offline (broadcast says some mud/sand on the ball maybe) and he leaves his approach to the right of the pin, rolling just off the green.
Hole 1 – Par 4
Tiger said he was stiff yesterday and wasn’t moving as well as he would’ve liked, causing a lot of right misses and left over corrections. Cue up the right miss again here on Saturday. Sensible layup here from the thick stuff, advancing up the fairway just short and left of the green. Pitch and a putt for par await. This was classy from TW, who gives this one a run past the pin and spins it back to just a few feet. Won’t get much better than that. Par on the first.
TIGER ON THE DAY: Even thru 1 (3 over overall)
