Luke Donald makes a slow start at the Memorial Tournament
The world number one, Luke Donald carded a one-under par 71 in the opening round of the Memorial Tournament at the Muirfield Village Golf Club to tie for the 20th place on Thursday, May 31, 2012.
Donald looked disappointed with his performance on the opening day, as he entered the field with a recent victory to his name that he earned at the BMW PGA Championship.
He recorded a total of three birdies against a double bogey to finish five strokes behind the leader, Scott Stallings.
He told that he was not in a good position while making the strokes on the course. However, his putts helped him stay in the game, which was a good thing for him.
“Well, hopefully that's my loose round out of the way. I didn't hit the ball well. I was scrambling a lot,” he said. “But fortunately I putted pretty well, and I'm pretty happy with the score in the end. It wasn't that solid of a round tee to green. I'm
going to need to tidy that up”.
He also said that the course was playing really tricky and it was difficult to find accuracy, especially when the pins were too tough.
Apart from his own performance, he also talked about his group and said that everyone in his group had a bad day.
According to him, Rory McIlroy made a great comeback after making a triple bogey on the par-three 12th hole.  He also shared the 20th position with Donald at the end of the day.
Apart from that, Keegan Bradley also found the water twice during the round and finished badly, as he carded two double bogeys and four bogeys against two birdies and an eagle.
“It probably wasn't our best golf,” he said. “There were some opportunities out there. Rory obviously got unstuck early with a 7 on the 12th and fought back pretty well”.
In the meantime, the 14-time major winner Tiger Woods had a pretty decent round compared to Donald and he finished tied for the 11th position. He recorded four birdies against a double bogey to settle for a two-under par 70.
