Memorial Golf; Tiger out, Phil in.

Posted:

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.
