Byrd Eagles


DUBLIN, Ohio – The media throng trailing Tiger Woods, who needed just eight holes to grab a share of a crowded Memorial lead, were rocked by a roar that came from behind the world No. 1’s pairing.
“Must be an eagle,” guessed one scribe. He was right. Jonathan Byrd holed his third shot at the par-5 seventh hole for an eagle and the outright lead at 11 under. At this pace there are going to be more lead changes than a NBA Finals game, but then Thursday’s Lakers’ blowout had none of the drama that the final round at Muirfield Village is producing.
