This week: The Memorial Tournament, Thursday through Sunday, Muirfield Golf Club, Dublin, Ohio.

Moore’s first-round score: 2-under-par 70.

Stanley’s first-round score: 3-over 75.

Position: Moore is tied for 11th, and Stanley is tied for 88th – all trailing leader Scott Stallings (66).

Recap: This course isn’t that easy, but Moore has sure made it seem that way lately. He has shot an under-par round in eight of his past nine opportunities, including Thursday. He was tied for the lead at 3-under after his second-hole birdie (10-foot putt), stumbled a bit with back-to-back bogeys at Nos. 5 and 6, but rebounded at the par-5 seventh hole where he got up and down from in front of the green for birdie, making a 6-footer. … Two bogeys and a double bogey on his opening four holes immediately put Stanley in a hole. It could have been worse had he not rallied late with birdies at No. 15 (pitching wedge approach to 6 feet) and No. 16 (8-iron tee shot to 3 feet).

Tee times Friday: Moore at 4:42 a.m. PDT off the first tee, and Stanley at 10:05 a.m. PDT off the 10th tee.
