Golf roundup: Bryson DeChambeau wins Memorial in playoff

Joaquin Niemann

DUBLIN, OH - JUNE 02: Tiger Woods misses a birdie putt on the third hole during the third round of The Memorial Tournament Presented by Nationwide at Muirfield Village Golf Club on June 2, 2018 in Dublin, Ohio.

Woods, a five-time victor at the OH event at Muirfield Village, now sits at 11-under-par but is losing ground on Patrick Cantlay, who has taken sole possession of the lead at 17 under through seven holes.

Niemann is contesting just his fourth PGA Tour event since turning pro immediately after last month's Masters.

With the course soft and vulnerable to low scores, it was tough to leave shots on the course.

They were two shots ahead of Byeong Hun An (67).

And things looked good when he birdied the first hole, but Woods could never get closer than 3 strokes to the leaders and again missed numerous changes, settling for just three birdies and three bogeys.

With 18 holes left in the Memorial Tournament, the leaderboard, which has toiled in anonymity in recent years, is filled with star power - Justin Rose, Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Adam Scott, Justin Thomas, Rickie Fowler, and Henrik Stenson all are near the top. He was six behind.

Woods is a five-time victor at the Memorial, the last one in 2012. He mixed a birdie and a bogey in the rest of the way while missing two more makeable putts, settling for a 5-under 67 that moved him up 23 spots and into a tie for 24th. "Didn't really feel my swing very well, and consequently I hit it both ways - mainly left".

For Woods, the last memory of his four rounds at Muirfield Village will be sublime ballstriking, the best in the field and better than anything he has produced going back to the first of his four back surgeries.

"I haven't had great finishes here, so the expectation of me playing is a little bit different this year". He had two eagles on Saturday including a hole in one on the par three eighth hole.

Woods played the last five holes of the front nine in 5 under, starting with his second eagle of the week. "I play beautifully actually". "Had total control of what I was doing out there and just didn't finish it off". "I feel like when I get in contention that I know I can seal the deal and play well under pressure and that's what this game's all about".

"It's weird to say but this is my first (weather) delay this year and coming back to competition and I was a little bit anxious how my back would feel, and I was hoping the delay wouldn't be that long".

Getting off to a good start on an early tee time has its advantages. He played bogey-free for a 64 and wound up just six shots behind. He finished with a par save from just off the ninth green and reached 11-under 133.

Johnson and Rose each have a chance to get to No. 1 in the world. McIlroy made three birdies and an eagle on the front nine and three more birdies on the back, with nary a bogey on the card, rising from tied for 67th to tied for 11th.

Since his closing 64 at the Masters, Spieth has finished at least 12 shots behind the victor in his three tournaments and missed the cut in his final event before heading to Shinnecock Hills for the U.S. Open.
