The world no. 220th ranked player fired a three-under 67 to finish at seven-under for the championship and place in a tie for 35th.

Tiger Woods struggled early in the first round of the Memorial Tournament, but he managed to turn it around on his second nine to contain the damage to a one-over 73 at Muirfield Village and stay within six shots of the leaders. Following the pro-am on Wednesday, Woods told reporters he felt progress with his swing changes and his game, but his first nine holes were a different story.

Earlier this week ahead of The Memorial Tournament, Tiger Woods made his first scouting trip to Chambers Bay, the site of the U.S. Open in University Place, Washington. Woods, who arrived in the area on Sunday, played practice rounds on Monday and Tuesday and spent extra time charting the course and doing his homework on the intricate course.

Woods was asked if he liked Chambers Bay in his pre-tourney press conference.

Just another TW club throw!

Apparently, there are quite a few fans watching golf on television who are less than thrilled with the language that Tiger Woods utters at times — usually after he’s hit a poor shot.

According to golf.com, the Federal Communications Commission has received 22 complaints about profanities heard on golf broadcasts on CBS, NBC, Golf Channel and ESPN since 2011. The majority (15) of those gripes were related to curse words that came from Tiger’s mouth.

While Tiger Woods has been playing his cards close to his chest as to when he’ll make his next start after finishing T17 at the Masters, one place he’ll apparently be playing is the Memorial Tournament, which Jack Nicklaus hosts at the end of May

Nicklaus, who spoke Wednesday during a fundraising event at Ohio State, said that he and Woods had a “long, long talk” at Augusta National, where they discussed various topics.

Tiger Woods feels that he’s ready to play — and most important, compete — at this week’s Masters. A cheery and particularly upbeat Woods, who wasn’t certain to make the start until his official announcement last Friday, created a stir on Monday afternoon when he showed up at Augusta National to practice and play 11 holes, especially for his dance moves as he rocked out to some hip-hop on the chipping/pitching range.

Considering Woods hasn’t been spotted publicly on the golf course since February 5 when he withdrew after 11 holes in the first round of the Farmers Insurance Open, Woods’ game reportedly looked quite sharp. He also spent a significant amount of time working on his chipping in the practice area and on the golf course.
