DUBLIN, Ohio -- Charl Schwartzel made sure one hole didnt ruin an entire round Thursday in the Memorial. Schwartzel hit the ball so consistently well at Muirfield Village that the former Masters champion twice had stretches of four straight birdies. And when he made a double bogey with an 8-iron in hand and his ball on a tee toward the end of the round, he got rid of that bad taste with one last birdie for a 7-under 65. Schwartzel had a one-shot lead over Scott Piercy, who went from smashing it to playing it safe, and he was six shots clear of five-time winner Tiger Woods. Woods hit the ball well enough to be much closer, though he missed too many birdie chances and didnt make up any ground on the par 5s. "Thats probably the highest score I could have shot," Woods said after his 1-under 71. Woods was one shot worse than 53-year-old Fred Couples, the Presidents Cup captain at Muirfield Village this fall, and one shot better than 14-year-old Guan Tianlang, who has played more PGA Tour events than Woods over the last two months. Rory McIlroy, meanwhile, might be headed for another short week at the tournament Jack Nicklaus built. After opening with a birdie, McIlroy didnt putt nearly well enough to atone for some loose shots. McIlroy four-putted the par-3 12th for a double bogey, had a three-putt bogey on No. 7 and ended his round by missing a 4-foot birdie putt. That gave him a 78. "I dont really have many explanations for this," McIlroy said. Graham DeLaet of Weyburn, Sask., was the top Canadian at 2-under 70. David Hearn of Brantford, Ont., was at 1-under 71 and Mike Weir of Brights Grove, Ont., opened at 3-over 75. Schwartzel played in the morning, when the slick greens were still smooth, and he made 10 birdies in his round. Most of them were in the 10-foot range, though he picked up a bonus with a 25-foot putt down a slight ridge on the 16th. As well as he played, he thought a great round might turn into just a good one with one swing. His 8-iron on the par-3 eighth hole drifted right and caught the downward slope of a bunker. The South African tried to put a little more spin on the difficult shot and wound up sending it over the green. He chipped past the hole to about 8 feet and missed that to take double bogey. What saved him was a 12-foot birdie putt down the hill on his final hole, allowing him to leave the course with a smile. Thats not to suggest that if he had made par on the last hole he would have been ready to retire from the game. "It would still be OK," Schwartzel said. "Its really when youve played that well and youre thinking you get these few rounds a year where you really strike it well and youre making lots of birdies and you walk off with your 8, 9 under. And today was one of those where I really did flush it. And youre think maybe another birdie, and then get knocked back with a little 8-iron making double." Woods, trying to win five times before the U.S. Open for the first time in his PGA Tour career, looked as though he might get much closer to the lead despite having to lay up on both par 5s on the front nine and failing to make birdie. He hit 5-wood into about 25 feet for a two-putt birdie on the par-5 11th, and then spent the last few hours giving away shots. He made bogey from the back bunker on the par-3 12th, missed a 6-foot birdie putt on the 13th, and chopped up the par-5 15th despite getting a break off the tee when his ball hit a tree and went back into the fairway. He still had to lay up, but a simple wedge went some 40 feet long to the back collar, and Woods had to make a 5-foot putt just to save bogey. "Didnt capitalize on a few opportunities I had," Woods said. "Short irons, I didnt hit them close enough. All in all, it was a pretty high score." It wasnt nearly as high as what Nick Watney (82) and Nicolas Colsaerts (80) had on their cards. Woods plays in the morning for the second round and should be able to at least get closer to the top going into the weekend. Bill Haas and Matt Kuchar each had a 68, the best score of the afternoon. Piercy is one of the longer hitters on tour, so it would seem his game would be a good fit for the Memorial. He hasnt had much luck, so he decided to scale back off the tee and used 3-wood where he typically would hit driver to take it over the bunkers. Piercy had a 66, his best score in 10 rounds at Muirfield Village. Josh Teater, Russell Henley and Kyle Stanley were at 67, while Charlie Wi, Matt Jones and Michael Thompson shot 69. Piercy hit one of the longest drives on the 18th hole last year, leaving him a flip wedge to the green. Muirfield Village is a big golf course, with some of the widest fairways on tour and thick rough -- it should be thick for fairways that generous. But hitting driver never really worked for Piercy, so he decided to go with 3-wood, and he stuck with his plan. He still had relatively short irons into the green, and he knew he was onto something when he ran off five straight birdies on the front nine. "I thought Id hit a lot of 3-woods today and open up the fairways and allow me to get at some pins and knock them on the greens and make some putts," he said. "Maybe Im getting older." His 3-wood still goes plenty far. Piercy cut off a quarter-inch from the shaft, and found he was hitting it about 290 yards. Couples, meanwhile, was pleasantly surprised by his round of 70, mainly because he had a great round on the greens, taking 25 putts and making a couple of 8- to 10-foot par putts look easy. Then again, Couples plays with such a silky rhythm that he rarely looks stressed. He enjoys playing with Woods, and the bonus was having former PGA champion Keegan Bradley in the group. He had never played with Bradley and had no idea he hit the ball with such power. Bradley hit consecutive tee shots on the 10th and 11th holes close to 350 yards, leaving him a 6-iron into the par-5 11th. "Most guys lay up with a 6-iron," Couples said. Even so, Bradley could do no better than 71, not a bad start for an afternoon round. Cheap Yeezy Boost 350 v2 For Sale . The 18th player to shoot 60 on the tour, Jamieson settled for par on the final hole when his 15-foot birdie chip grazed the edge of the hole and stayed out. After opening with rounds of 66 and 73 to make the cut by a stroke, he had 11 birdies in the bogey-free round. Adidas Stan Smith Clearance .

Despite the cost, effort and an improved steroid test, its possible that very few -- if any -- positives will be detected, Dr. Richard Budgett told The Associated Press in an interview.

The visitors took a deserved lead in the 16th minute with midfielder Yohan Cabaye curling the ball beyond Adrian from inside the penalty area. Adidas Pure Boost 2.0 Primeknit Grey Uk . -- Gus Malzahn finally had his day in Fayetteville. Sri Lanka coach Graham Ford, who has previously praised Kusal Pereras technique, described Kusal Mendis 176 as one of the best hes seen, and said the batsmans temperament had impressed him as well. At the end of day four, Mendis innings still appears a monumental anomaly in a match in which the next highest score is 47.What can you say? Its one of the best innings Ive ever seen, Ford said. It was. He seemed to have a plan - and option - against all the bowlers. He showed real composure. The odd one did explode and turn on him but he didnt bother about the previous delivery. He just focused on the next ball and got on with the job. He is an amazing talent. He works really hard and really loves the game.Mendis innings was anomalous because of its tempo, as well as its size. Of top-order batsmen to breach 30 in this Test, no one else has had a strike rate of over 60. With his innings only spanning 254 balls, Mendis struck at 69. It is also anomalous in the context of his brief career so far - his previous highest in Tests had been 53 in Leeds.Hes batted at no. 3 in all formats across the last couple of months, and shown wonderful maturity, Ford said. Hes shown signs each time of the possibility of making big scores. There have been really exciting cameos each time,, but fortunately now hes got one of those big innings under his belt, it will hopefully lead to a lot more.ddddddddddddHe also just seems an extremely relaxed young man. Nothing really fazes him. He enjoys playing and he cant wait to get out there and bat. Doesnt seem to show any signs of nerves. He plays positively and plays his shots. He went to his hundred with a six - no nervous nineties. He definitely puts a lot of thought into it. He works hard. But theres no signs of him being too bothered, or worried about failure, which is quite a nice way of going about his business.Since debuting against West Indies in October last year, Mendis has largely filled the no. 3 position vacated by Kumar Sangakkara. Had you still had the Sangas and the Mahela Jayawardenes, Kusal would have ideally been blooded at no. 6 or 7, Ford said. But without anybody really putting their hand up to grab that no. 3 spot, we thought he was the guy to get in and had the technique to handle it. Each time he went out there he looked like he had real capabilities to become a world-class and match-winning no. 3. So we decided to run with him and hes paid us back.
