Memorial Tournament - Round 1

Charl Schwartzel jumped out to a one-stroke lead in the opening round of the Memorial thanks to 10 birdies at Muirfield Village. He was one of six men to go out in the morning wave and post 5-under or better. The lowest of the afternoon wave was 4-under (Bill Haas and Matt Kuchar). Needless to say, the AM tee times were key.

Other thoughts:

  • If Friday is anything like Thursday, it's entirely possible that 7-under will still be the leading number come day's end Friday. Much will depend on how the six guys currently 5-under or better fare on Friday afternoon.
  • Along those lines, if you had a guy in one of your games that played poorly in the morning on Thursday, you're in real trouble. Conversely, a disappointing round in the afternoon could still be overcome Friday morning.
  • Going with Woods, Kuchar, Furyk and Scott in round 2 of Yahoo!.
Best of luck!
