This week's Memorial Tournament would be Tier 3 and annually draws a spectacular field because it's hosted by none other than Jack Nicklaus himself - thus players want to honor the Golden Bear by competing - and played at one of America's top courses, Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio (suburb of Columbus). Check in for highlights from every tournament plus player interviews, player profiles, tournament previews, swing analysis and all the greatest shots and awesome moments.
Tiger Woods, a five-time Memorial champion, mixed four birdies with two bogeys to post a tidy 70 and he sits at two under.
Just a couple of days after Memorial Day, the Memorial Tournament is the next stop on the PGA Tour. Last year, McIlroy finished eighth in this event as well. After the disappointment of the PGA Championship it's safe to assume this will be to shake off any rust heading into the US Open. On top of the difficulty of the holes themselves, there are 12 holes with water in play. Woods' group, which included defending champion Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Rose, were put on the clock the final nine holes after falling a complete hole behind the group ahead of them. That's not the only mega pairing either as Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth will also be together.
"I don't think I've ever seen a ball go that far around the hole and go in", Moore said. It was soft. And coming up nine (his 18th) it seemed like everybody was 3-under par or better.

Bruce Cassidy Laments Bruins’ Missed Opportunities In Game 2 Loss
The Bruins badly outshot the Blues 38-20 in the game, including 30 to 12 in the final two periods of play. Louis a 3-2 victory over the Boston Bruins and tie the Stanley Cup Final at a game apiece.
Others to watch out for are Hideki Matsuyama who has played extremely well at this course in the past, but he's still looking for that great form before his wrist injury last spring. This is Peyton Manning and Tiger Woods we're talking about, after all.
The first round from Dublin, Ohio tees off Thursday morning at 7:20 am EST.
PGA Championship victor Brooks Koepka and runner-up Dustin Johnson, the two top-ranked golfers in the world, will not be participating in the tournament. "That's the reason that I took the time off that I did".
One of the main features is a bronze sculpture of Nicklaus mentoring a young golfer which was unveiled in 1999 and is in the wide median of Muirfield Drive.
