When Does Tiger Woods Tee Off? Memorial Tournament Second round Tee Times

Tiger Woods admitted feeling a "little rusty" after finishing five shots adrift of leader Tony Finau in the first round of the Memorial Tournament on Thursday.

Playing in his first PGA Tour event since February, Woods started and ended his first round at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio, with a birdie, carding a 1-under par 71, which left him tied for 18th.

"It's been a while since I've played," Woods told reporters after his round. "Got off to almost an ideal start and got a feel for the round early. I just didn't make anything today. I had looks at birdies, but I really didn't make much. ... It felt good [to be back]. I mean, it felt good. I was a little bit rusty, but felt like overall it was a good start."

The 15-time major winner will begin the second round at 8:17 a.m. EDT on Friday from tee No. 10 alongside world No. 1 Rory McIlroy and four-time major winner Brooks Koepka, his two companions during the opening round on Thursday.

McIlroy finished one shot ahead of Woods, with Koepka a further shot behind the Northern Irishman, along with a large group of players that includes Phil Mickelson, Sergio Garcia, Louis Oosthuizen and Abraham Ancer.

McIlroy was impressed with what he saw of Woods in the first round.

"He was hitting it nicely," the Northern Irishman said.

"He sort of had most things under control today. I've always liked playing with him because of that rhythm that he has."

Like McIlroy, Woods and Koepka, Finau will also begin the second round from tee No.10. The 30-year-old will tee off at 7:55 a.m. along with Garcia and world No. 2 Jon Rahm, who carded a 3-under 69 on Thursday.

Finau hit seven birdies of the final 10 holes of his first round for a 6-under par 66 that gave him a one-shot lead over Ryan Palmer, with Brendan Steele and Gary Woodland a shot further back. Charles Howell III and Lucas Glover, meanwhile, joined Rahm at 3-under.

Palmer will tee off from the first hole at 7:55 a.m. along with Tyler Duncan and Steve Stricker, while Woodland will tee off from the 10th hole at 7:44 a.m. along with Webb Simpson and Billy Horschel with Howell starting from the same hole at 1:06 p.m.

Muirfield Village hosted the Workday Charity Open last week—this marks the first time in 63 years the PGA Tour has played consecutive events on the same course—but the conditions have changed radically. A week ago, 35 players carded a score below 70 in the first round, a feat only seven players achieved on Thursday.

Bryson DeChambeau wasn't among the selected few. Since the PGA Tour resumed last month, the American has turned heads with his ferocious drives and continued in similar fashion on Thursday, hitting a 423-yard drive. However, he finished 1-above par and will have work to do on Friday when he starts the second round from tee No. 1 at 1:06 p.m. alongside defending champion Patrick Cantlay and Collin Morikawa, who won on this course last week.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Friday.
