DUBLIN, Ohio - Geoff Ogilvy missed a par putt of inside 3 feet on his 17th hole Thursday and dropped into a three-way tie for the lead with 21-year-old Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose in the first round of the Memorial.
The three players shot rounds of 7-under-par 65, leaving them 2 strokes ahead of a group that included Phil Mickelson, who can rise to No. 1 in the world with a victory at Muirfield Village.
Delayed by two weather-related suspensions, defending champion Tiger Woods, the current No. 1, finished 18 holes, even if he looked ordinary. He overcame two early bogeys with consecutive birdies around the turn and shot an even-par 72.
For Woods, a four-time winner at the Memorial, it was the first time since 2004 that he failed to break par in the opening round.
Ogilvy took the outright lead at 8-under and had a 15-foot birdie putt on the par-3 eighth when he missed. Without marking the ball, he stepped over it and watched the tap-in spin out of the cup.
OOLTEWAH, Tenn. - Scott Langley of Illinois fired a 4-under-par 68 to capture the individual title in the NCAA Division I Golf Championships at the Honors Course.
With a 54-hole score of 10-under 206, Langley finished two shots ahead of Oklahoma State's Peter Uihlein, a member of the 2009 U.S. Walker Cup team, and Alex Ching of San Diego.
Oklahoma State finished as low team through stroke play at 14-under par. The top eight teams after 54 holes qualified for match play, with San Diego, Arizona State and Stanford needing to play off Friday morning for the final spot.
