Hi I’m Cara Robinson and this is GW News. We start at Muirfield Village where Rory McIlroy's brilliant 63 gave him a 3 shot lead after the opening round of The Memorial Tournament.
Even a double bogey at 14 didn’t disrupt him too much, in a round that consisted of 2 eagles and 7 birdies.
Bubba Watson, Paul Casey and Chris Kirk all started well, they're tied at 6 under par, 3 off the Northern Irishman.
Meanwhile, Keegan Bradley played without his belly putter for the first time ahead of the 2016 ban, and it worked out well - he's a stroke further back.
To Sweden and the Nordea Masters now where home-favourite Jens Dantorp and Eddie Pepperell shared the first round lead.
The week sees Race to Dubai champion, Henrik Stenson, return to his native soil hoping to win his home event for the first time. He shot an opening round of 3 under par, 3 off the lead.
We end with the announcement that one of the 5 Majors on the ladies tour will be changing its name.
From 2015, the Wegman’s LPGA Championship will now be known as the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. It will be a collaboration between the LPGA and the PGA of America and will see it’s prize money rise from 2.25 million dollars to $3.5 million.
Well that’s all for this week but join us on Monday when we’ll round up the weekend’s action. In the meantime follow us on Twitter @golfingworldtv and we’re also on Facebook and Instagram. Thanks for watching.
