"I'm looking forward to tomorrow".

1 fired a 6-over-par 78 and is 13 shots behind first-round co-leaders David Lingmerth of Sweden and Jason Dufner. Dufner found his worst trait in putting was not having a consistent routine and getting too fast, nearly as if he wanted to get it over with quickly. Last year, he opened with a 68. "I've had a lot of good rounds". "I'm not going to lie, I watched a few of Dufs highlights, the hole-out on 18 and everything". 15 and 16 to move to 3 under.

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

Nordqvist had two birdies and consecutive birdies on Nos.

A majority of Johnson's troubles came at the par-3 16th, where his tee shot found the water.

Spieth, who finished with a share of second at Colonial Country Club in Texas on Sunday, teed off on 10 and followed three birdies in his first six holes with back-to-back bogeys.

Spieth had eight birdies, which was tied with Lingmerth, Summerhays, and Rickie Fowler for the most in the first round.

"I'm excited to have another chance here, " Kuchar said. "I'll get over it". More than his solid round was the collapse by Dufner. He attributes that to hard work, which is mainly working on his breathing.

"Nice start, nice to grab a record", Dufner said. He prefers a slow, rhythmic breath and a process of counting to two on the exhale and pulling the trigger.

He said the goal presumably is to keep his heartbeat low, a real challenge for a guy who barely has a pulse in the first place. Some days I do it better than others. "That's really given me a lot of confidence".

Three players are four back at nine-under, including the surprise of the week, Bubba Watson.

"Obviously, not a Bubba Watson fan", he said. "But I know that there's been times with my putting that the thought process and my actions have felt like they've been sped up and too quick". I feel confident out here.

Dufner's 14-under par total of 130 put him five shots in front of fellow American Daniel Summerhays, who carded a 69 for 135.

Top-ranked Australians Jason Day and Adam Scott will use the closing rounds of the US PGA Tour's Memorial Tournament to sharpen their games ahead of the upcoming US Open.

He plundered an eagle and eight birdies but also had three bogeys, while Dufner was flawless until the par-four 18th, where he missed the green with his approach shot for the first time all day, leading to a closing bogey.

He would need a 67 to break the 54-hole record set by Hoch in 1987. He wound up finishing one back of Kevin Kisner, and Spieth brought his form to Ohio. It dropped for a birdie. "I got an awesome break on my third hole today, No. 12". "The last thing I said before I hit it was, the idea is to have the pin stop it". Just haven't been able to put it together for four days.
