Memorial Tournament 2012: Double Bogey On 12 Costs Tiger Woods Lead

A dreadful time on the par-3 12th has Tiger Woods two off the lead at the Memorial Tournament. The lead is now shared by Spencer Levin and Scott Stallings. Woods is now in a tie for fourth place with a bunch of people.

Woods had parred five-straight after a great start to the day, getting him to 5-under on the tournament, in a three-way tie for first. However, he had nothing going for him on the 12th. Woods badly missed the green to the left, finding himself in some tough rough about three feet from the gallery. His attempt to make it back onto the green came up short, and his second chip left him lying three on the green with a relatively long putt. It was his second double bogey of the tourney - he's playing pretty well outside of the rare awful hole.

Elsewhere on the leaderboard, the very recent World No. 1 -- and now World No. 2, I suppose -- Rory McIlroy is struggling to make the cut with a truly awful round -- he's at 5-over on the day to put him at 4-over on the tournament, which looks to be one stroke over the projected cut-line.
