2012 Memorial Tournament: Bud Cauley Atop Early Leaderboard

American Bud Cauley and South African Trevor Immelman spent the morning jockeying for the top spot in early first-round action at the Memorial Tournament.

Cauley is, at the moment, sitting atop the leaderboard with a 4-under through 14 holes. Fellow American Robert Garrigus is in second at 3-under through nine holes.

Immelman is in a five-way tie for third at 2-under.

Tiger Woods, who owns the Memorial record with four wins, was tied for second through eight holes. Alas, a double-bogey put him at par and in a tie for No. 15.

The world's current No. 1 golfer, Luke Donald, is 1-over through 10.

Rory McIlroy, the world's current No. 2, stubbed his toe early with a quadruple bogey on the par-3 12th, which was his third hole of the morning. He rebounded with birdies on two of the next four holes, but followed that up by hitting into the water on the 17th, which went for another bogey. He was 3-over through 10 holes.

The Memorial purse is $6.2 million, and the winner is slated to take home north of $1.1 million.

A complete, live leaderboard is available here.
