Chilean teenager shares lead at Memorial

Bryson DeChambeau celebrates after beating Beyong Hun An, on the 18th hole in the second playoff hole during the final round of the Memorial golf tournament Sunday, in Dublin, Ohio.

Nicklaus however, who will host this week's Memorial tournament in OH, said he is convinced Woods can win Majors again after playing with him on Monday at Shinnecock Hills, the venue for the 2018 US Open. He then shot 40 on the back nine and finished with a 69.

The three-time Muirfield Village champion had three-putted his opening hole but soon made amends with four birdies from his third to ninth holes and move to three-under par.

"A couple bad breaks on 18", Stanley said.

Dustin Johnson followed up his even par on Thursday with an impressive round of six under, putting him level with Bubba Watson and Justin Rose in a share of 11th. "I was three or four behind Rickie".

Niemann, a former world number one amateur, had shared the first-round lead with Matsuyama and Mexico's Abraham Ancerer and he kept the foot on the accelerator with seven birdies against three bogeys.

Patrick Cantlay didn't manage a hole-in-one through more than three dozen PGA Tour starts before this season.

Well before the leaders were at the course or awake, McIlroy teed off for his third round at 8:11 a.m.

Ariya said she was paying little attention to her secon-place position, and instead was focusing on her own game.


The course is so soft and vulnerable, it seems as though that's what it might take.

The results were spectacular - an 8-under 64, the low score of the day.

He missed birdie chances of 6 feet, 4 feet and 7 feet, and then missed from 3 feet for par on the 17th that left him exasperated.

"There was a lot of good stuff", he said. He said, "I've played great, obviously, I'm ecstatic about where I am". He recorded a pair of bogeys on the first nine holes Friday, but then birdied six of the last nine to finish with a 66. Gone was the "just happy to be here" version we saw earlier this year. "So I'll try and do the same thing tomorrow".

The in-form Jason Day is in contention once more, the Australian posting a second straight 68. And he was 72nd among the 73 players who played four rounds in strokes-gained putting, a statistic that measures how a player fares compared to the entire field.

"I want to play well in front of my family", he said. "I play beautifully actually".

"I think I just (stunk) on it for a long time", Day said. Four of his pars came on two-putts inside 15 feet. He didn't make another birdie until the par-5 15th, when his sharp-breaking 15-footer dropped to give him a tie for the lead. For the week, Woods had five three-putt greens and missed seven putts inside 5 feet. "I am definitely not taking advantage of how well I'm hitting it". Stanley choked up and took a swing, but the ball squirted ou t about 30 yards to the right, leading to another bogey, and he was quickly eliminated.

"I hit the ball well enough to where shooting in the 60s could have been pretty easy if I had just putted normally". Haney made it clear they should be careful what they wish for.

Still winless this year, Spieth fired an even-par 72 to finish at three over, missing the weekend.
