Through one day of action, Charl Schwarzel has the lead, posting a seven-under-par 65, while Scott Piercy, Josh Teater, Russell Henley, Kyle Stanley and Charlie Wi nip at his heels.

Players Who Will Continue to Shine
Charl Schwartzel (-7)
The world No. 15 has three top-10 finishes in nine PGA Tour events this year, including a third-place finish at the HP Byron Nelson Championship two weeks ago.
The 2011 Masters champion hasn't had much success at the Memorial the past two years, but, then again, he shot a 72 in the first round in each of those two years. The fact that he's started strong at Muirfield Village is an encouraging sign for the South African.
Through one day of action, Charl Schwartzel ranks first in the field in greens-in-regulation percentage and second in driving accuracy, per CBSSports.com.
PGA Tour pointed out an alarming stat from Schwartzel's performance at the HP Byron Nelson Championship:
Matt Kuchar (-4)
The world No. 9 not only has five top-10 finishes and one victory on the PGA Tour this season, but he also is coming off a second-place finish at the Crowne Plaza Invitational.
While Matt Kuchar didn't appear in the 2012 Memorial Tournament, he placed second in the tournament in 2011. He also placed eighth in 2010, fifth in 2009 and 10th in 2008.
The Florida native played steady golf on Thursday, posting only one bogey (tied for second in the field, via CBSSports.com).
Russell Henley (-5)
Russell Henley certainly has a lot of promise. In the 24-year-old's first full season on the PGA Tour last year, he posted seven top-10 finishes, including two victories (in playoffs, no less).
This year, Henley has posted two top-10 finishes, including a victory at the Sony Open in January.
Through one day of action, the Georgia native ranks fifth in greens-in-regulation percentage and fourth in birdies (seven), per CBSSports.com.
What did he do after his strong performance?
Why, he played guitar, of course. Per Golfweek Magazine:
