Scotty Scheffler has struggled on all levels so far at the Memorial Tournament.

For the first nine holes, Hovland had one bogey and two birdies. On the 10th hole, there was another bogey, but the 25-year-old quickly rectified this when he putt a 5.7m birdie putt on the 12th hole. Two more birdie holes then appeared on the scorecard, and things looked bright all the way to Hoveland You must hit the ball on the last green.

The second stroke ended in the thickest weed, and Hovland had to use two strokes to get out. This resulted in a new bogey on the final hole for the golfer who was ranked seventh in the world before the tournament began.

Hovland walked the first two days of the tournament alongside world number one Scotty Scheffler. The American has struggled and looks set to make it to the final two days of the tournament. The cutting limit is three equal strokes. It’s the same thing Scheffler got after two days of playing.
