As for Tiger, he was back on the golf course competing in the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Ohio on Thursday. He attributed a relatively mediocre performance (even-par 72) on the links to his rustiness in just his fourth tourney since the scandal broke last November.

“I haven’t played,” Woods told ESPN. “This is my 10th round of the year. Usually you’re like that in January. Here we are in June. I need competitive rounds.”
