Ryan Palmer and Tony Finau closed as leaders at the Memorial

The North American couple remain on top for the weekend, while Tiger Woods returned to action for the first time since February.

Before we get to the weekend, Ryan Palmer and Tony Finau are tied for the lead in the middle stage of the Memorial Tournament, where the 15 times champion, Tiger Woods, made his return to action for the first time since February.

Palmer posted a four-under-par 68 to join fellow American Finau in a one-shot lead advantage after Friday’s second round in Dublin, Ohio.

Finau was the all-time leader when day two began, but a second-round 69 saw him enter the weekend with company after 36 holes at Muirfield Village.

As for Woods, he barely survived to extend his return from the PGA to the weekend of Friday. He got off to a decent start, but his second round was far more troubling amid back problems.

The 44-year-old, who opened the event with a 71, signed a four-for-par 76 to close on day three, just one shot above the cut line.

Three bogeys from his first nine holes left Woods in trouble, but the five-time Memorial Tournament winner rebounded after the turn by birdying two of his last three holes.
