Teater shoots 67, two shots off lead

Lexington's Josh Teater remained hot, firing a 5-under par 67 to open The Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio. Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel leads the way with a 7-under 65.

Schwartzel hit the ball so consistently well at Muirfield Village that he twice had stretches of four straight birdies. And when he made a double bogey with an 8-iron in hand and his ball on a tee toward the end of the round, he got rid of that bad taste with one last birdie for a 7-under 65.

Schwartzel had a one-shot lead over Scott Piercy, who went from smashing it to playing it safe, and was six shots clear of five-time winner Tiger Woods.

Woods hit the ball well enough to be much closer, though he missed too many birdie chances and didn't make up any ground on the par 5s.
