Tiger Woods is the defending champion at Memorial and a four-time winner at Muirfield Village.
It just doesn't seem that way.
He arrived at the course that Jack Nicklaus built -- the one that Woods at times seems to own -- with his game as unpredictable at ever. Woods is coming off a neck injury that he said now feels good enough to practice and play. He no longer has a swing coach, having split with Hank Haney three weeks ago, and has no plans to find another one anytime soon.
Since returning to golf in April, he has completed only one tournament, a tie for fourth in The Masters. That takes on even greater significance with the US Open at Pebble Beach only two weeks away.
"Maybe this time I'll get four rounds in and get ready for the Open," Woods said on Wednesday.
