Tiger Woods said his back was tight during the opening round of the Memorial Tournament, though the 14-time major champion stressed there was no pain.

Former world number one Woods – who has been plagued by back issues and surgeries – was wayward early but salvaged his round with an even-par 72 in Dublin, Ohio Thursday.

A five-time champion at Muirfield, Woods struggled early as he bogeyed his second hole before double-bogeying the 15th having hit his tee shot out bounds, while the American dropped another shot at the next hole.
