DUBLIN, Ohio – Tiger Woods has some work to do he wants to win the Memorial for a sixth time. A lot of work.
Bill Haas handled the windy, tough conditions Friday at Muirfield Village for a 5-under 67 that put him in control at 9-under 135. Woods missed only one fairway, but he couldn't do anything from there. He bogeyed his last hole for a 74 and was 10 shots behind. Woods has never won a PGA Tour event from farther than nine shots behind, and that was 14 years ago at Torrey Pines.
Haas had a three-shot lead among the early starters. Charl Schwartzel, the 18-hole leader, played in the afternoon.
Woods was at 1-over 145, his worst 36-hole total at the Memorial since the first year he played in 1997.
