Woods far behind in Memorial field

Friday, May 24, 2002

DUBLIN, Ohio -- Tiger Woods' dominance at the Memorial suffered a setback Thursday. Not only was he nine strokes behind leader Bob Tway, he couldn't even beat Jack.

While Tway birdied four of his first five holes and had a tap-in eagle for a 7-under 65, Woods failed to break par in the opening round for the first time all year, leaving him three strokes behind tournament founder Jack Nicklaus.
