Tiger silent after Memorial pro-am

By Marla Ridenour Published: May 30, 2012

If his body language was any indication, Tiger Woods might not have been happy with the state of his game following Wednesday's Memorial tournament pro-am at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

Before he left the 18th green, ropes were quickly stretched out to keep fans at bay, but Woods was still forced to walk through a tight and not always well behaved gauntlet. Woods signed a few autographs and quickly strode to the clubhouse without speaking to a small group of reporters.
