Memphis, Tenn. Boo Weekley made the most of his time after missing the cut in the Memorial, with his work around the greens at TPC Southwind paying off. Combining his usual strong ballstriking with efficient putting, Weekley shot a 5-under 65 to take the first-round lead in the Stanford St. Jude Championship. He closed with a birdie on No. 18 to move a stroke ahead of Tommy Armour III.
Armour, who shot a 66, had been tied with Weekley at 5 under. Vijay Singh shot a 67.
