Cantlay captures second PGA Tour title at Memorial

Cantlay captures second PGA Tour title at Memorial

Lee6 was ahead by three after a birdie on the par-5 15th, but took bogeys on the 16th and 18th to give Boutier a chance. He closed with a 72 and finished third. "It put me a little more at ease, and I hit a lot of really nice, quality shots with the lead". "I knew I had a little bit of a mountain to climb to start the day. Look, I'd nearly take that same round tomorrow with (my) below-average putting and see how my chances tack up, but I'm going to need a really great round tomorrow".

"I just wasn't able to get anything really going", Woods said.

Adam Scott is back as a force in world golf, unequivocally.

Cantlay followed up early birdies at the second and fifth with three in a row from the seventh for a front nine of 31.

"Still it was a learning experience, from which I will surely benefit", said Sharma, who had just two birdies, three bogeys, one double and one triple. "I played good golf all week".

Anyone who saw Cantlay play in OH eight years ago would have expected a performance like this.

"It's disappointing not to win, for sure", Scott said.

He fired the best closing round in tournament history, shooting an 8-under-par 64 to finish at 19-under 269 and capturing his second career PGA title by two shots. A rising star coming out of UCLA - he was low amateur at the 2011 U.S. Open and opened with a 60 at the Travelers Championship a week later - he missed two full years with a back injury that almost cost him his career. "I just didn't believe that I could win the tournament I'm playing". Joining them was Patrick Cantlay with a skill set that suggests he should have more than his one victory that came in the fall of 2017.

Justin Rose, in his first outing since announcing his split with long time bagman Mark "Fooch" Fulcher, finished in 13th. A year ago, he took a two-shot lead to the back nine and didn't make a birdie the rest of the way, missing a playoff by one shot. One day after he holed two chips and made a long eagle putt, he was in position for a low score and had to settle for a 70. In terms of the bigger picture, though, Woods will be heartened by the fact he found 12 out of 14 fairways at Muirfield Village and 14 of 18 greens. "And that has to do with me feeling really comfortable on the golf course and liking it a lot".

Three-time major victor Jordan Spieth, himself looking for a first win since the 2017 Open Championship, was tied seventh on 10 under for his best finish of the season, while Masters champion Tiger Woods finished on nine under after a brilliant final-round charge briefly threatened to produce the most unlikely of victories in a tournament he has won five times.

A 14 footer read perfectly well helped Shubhankar move to 4-under for the round as he went past the 12th hole.

Marc Leishman, Bud Cauley and Kyoung-Hoon Lee are all tied for sixth place (9 under) and Emiliano Grillo sits in solo ninth (8 under).

"I'll hold my hands up here, I just don't get the massive Patrick Cantlay love in week after week and he looks an horrendous price at around 18.00 given the strength of the field".

"I wanted to have something positive coming into the Open".
