Bryson DeChambeau wins the Memorial Tournament in playoff

04 June 2018

The third member of the final group, 19-year-old Joaquin Niemann, made two double-bogeys en route to a one-over 73. "Just being able to make that 11-footer going, yes, I can do this, I can come in, clutch, when I'm not playing well, to be able to finish the job off".

Tiger Woods ignited the galleries at the Memorial Tournament in OH on Friday with a five-under par 67 but still has a lot of work to do if he is to catch the leading pair of Joaquin Niemann and Kyle Stanley, who top the leaderboard on 11-under 133.

And he was six shots behind with almost two dozen players in front of him.

His skills were on display again on Friday, during the second round of the Memorial Tournament.

European - Lee Slattery shot a 9-under 62 to take a one-stroke lead entering the final round of the Italian Open in Brescia.

Throw in a ball out of bounds on the par-4 13th, and Woods followed up a solid 34 on the front nine with an ugly 38 on the back when he needed something closer to 30 to have a shot at his sixth win at this event.

"I think I just (stunk) on it for a long time", Day said.

Meanwhile, Woods was first in the field in strokes gained, tee to green; first in strokes gained, approach to the green; and first in proximity to the hole, with an average of 23 feet, 8 inches.

"I am definitely not taking advantage of how well I'm hitting it", said Woods, who hit 15 of 18 greens and made his only bogeys by twice three-putting.

A flawless drive at the par-5 fifth left Woods in the center of the fairway, and he ripped a 237-yard iron shot to 13 feet for eagle and drained the putt. That was good enough to get into a playoff against Kyle Stanley and Byeong-Hun An.

Patrick Cantlay, one of three players sharing second overnight, had four birdies in the first eight holes and was two shots ahead at the turn, but dropped three on the way home and finished 14 under.

"A little bit of momentum", Mickelson said, when asked what he took from his week at Muirfield Village. "I'm in a position where if I shoot another good round like I have the last two days, I've got a chance".

LPGA - Ariya Jutanugarn turned a three-shot deficit into a four-shot lead after shooting 5-under 67 at the US Women's Open at Shoal Creek in Birmingham, Ala. Although he hit his third shot to 2 feet, it wouldn't matter.

Rose has a chance to reach No. 1 in the world with a runner-up finish, depending on what Justin Thomas does Sunday.

Bryson DeChambeau lists physics as a special interest, describes his current swing theory as an exploration of the anatomical limits of the body and instead of a dream foursome he rattles off a list of physicist, including Albert Einstein, he'd like to meet.
