Jason Dufner And David Lingmerth Share Lead After First Round

Spieth joined Daniel Summerhays at six under, while fellow Americans Lucas Glover and Justin Thomas are at five under. Dufner pelted 17 greens in regulation on day one and his irons may have been even better today, despite hitting three fewer greens.

DUBLIN, Ohio - Roberto De Vicenzo, known as much for his scorecard error at the Masters as his British Open victory that made him Argentina's first major golf champion, died Thursday afternoon at his home in Buenos Aires.

David Lingmerth, of Sweden, reacts after an eagle on the 15th hole during the first round of the Memorial golf tournament, Thursday, June 1, 2017, in Dublin, Ohio.

"Every time I've showed up here I've had good feelings about this place". I've been in leads a lot on the weekends.

Spieth took a share of second at the Colonial Country Club, in Texas, last week and he was back among the pace-setters in OH after ending his round just one shot behind overnight leaders Jason Dufner and David Lingmerth.

"I need to just keep playing well", he said of looking to Saturday's round. "I really love the greens", said Lingmerth.

"I hung in there".

Included in his recovery was a birdie at 18, where he holed out from the bunker.

The 40-year-old former US PGA champion, Dufner, who hit six birdies and an eagle, looked set to hold an outright first-round lead but his first bogey at the 18th left him tied with Lingmerth at Muirfield Village.

But it was a disastrous day for world number one Dustin Johnson in Ohio. He three-putted from 4 feet on the sixth hole for a double bogey.
