Dublin: Indian golfer Jeev Milkha
Singh is in danger of missing his second successive cut after
turning in a disappointing two-over 74 to in the opening round
of the Memorial Tournament here.

Lying tied 87th, the Chandigarh-pro, who missed the cut
at last week`s Crowne Plaza International in Texas, could
suffer a similar fate here if he fails to raise his game at
the Muirfield Village Golf Club.

It was a steady start to the proceedings as Jeev found a
birdie on the second and parred next four holes.

A double-bogey on the seventh hole made it one-over for
Jeev but a birdie on the ninth had him even-par at the turn.

The back-nine was a tumultuous affair and Jeev stumbled
to four bogeys against a couple of birdies to round off a
rather disappointing day.

At the top, it was a three-way tie for the lead between
England`s Justin Rose, American Rickie Fowler and Australian
Geoff Oglivy after the all three of them opened with 65s.
