Memorial Golf; Tiger out, Phil in.


This week's stop on the PGA Tour is the Memorial at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. Early in the first round Josh Teater has the lead at 5-under after 7 holes of play.

This is the event that Jack Nicklaus founded in 1976 and won in 1977 and 1984. Tiger Woods, who remains sidelined with left leg injuries, has a record four victories.

The Memorial marks the first start since the Masters for Phil Mickelson. He finished 33rd in the first major of the season. Mickelson is 1-under after seven holes.

A year ago the winner was Justin Rose.
