Recap: 2017 Memorial Tournament, Round 1

The PGA Tour is in Dublin, Ohio for the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

We are tracking all of Thursday’s first-round action. Follow along…

7 p.m.: Jason Dufner and Sweden’s David Lingmerth co-lead at 7 under entering Round 2.

5:22 p.m.: Dufner now leads outright after another birdie at 15. He has 9 top-25 finishes this season in 14 starts, with just two missed cuts.

4:45 p.m.: Dufner is now tied for the lead at 7 under alongside Lingmerth after birdie at 14 and plodding along the course in true Dufner fashion. He did slightly point his index finger in the general direction of the fans to acknowledge the birdie putt.

4 p.m.: Jason Dufner has been sneaky good for months now and just got to 6 under for the tournament with a birdie at 11. Meanwhile, Jason Day is ready for Game 1 of the NBA Finals.

3 p.m.: Dustin Johnson absolutely crushed a drive on 17 Thursday, but that was one of the lone highlights throughout a 6-over round of 78. That puts the World No. 1 at T-116 (!) and second-to-last after Round 1. It was his worst professional round in well over a year.

1:40 p.m.: Jordan Spieth is one off the lead after shooting 6-under 66 in Round 1 of the Memorial. Spieth missed back-to-back cuts at the Players Championship and AT&T Byron Nelson before finishing T-2 at last week’s Dean & DeLuca Invitational.

1 p.m.: Sweden’s David Lingmerth is in with an opening-round, 7-under 65 and currently holds a one-shot lead over Daniel Summerhays. Lingmerth won the Memorial in 2015 for his first and only PGA Tour victory to date. His round included three bogeys, three birdies and an eagle on the back nine.
