Tiger Woods Just Finished His Third Round

Tiger Woods Just Finished His Third Round

Woods continued his run with birdies at the seventh and the ninth to get to within a shot of leaders Kyle Stanley and Joaquin Niemann.

Woods has made it a big goal to qualify for the tournament at a venue where he has won eight times. "I played really, really well - played beautifully, actually had control of what I was doing out there - I just didn't finish it off".

For the week, Woods made just one birdie over the closing three holes and played them in 3 over par.

The 4-foot miss for par on the final hole certainly contributed to his fiery mood.

DeChambeau, who earned his second PGA Tour victory, led by one shot entering the final round.

"Don't know if I have ever seen that on a 72nd hole, a break like that", Nick Faldo said on the CBS broadcast.

Day is a member at Muirfield Village, though that hasn't translated well.

"I hit it pretty well for having what I'd would call B to B-plus game, " DeChambeau said.

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.

Kyle Stanley made four straight birdies and stood on the 72nd tee tied for the Memorial Tournament lead on Sunday, but an unlucky break made his route to the title that much more hard. "I'm in a position where if I shoot another good round like I have the last two days, I've got a chance". Even though I missed [some] little 3-footers, I still think I'm rolling it really well and have a great chance for tomorrow.

So as Woods charts his course back to the winner's circle, it could be said he has time on his side.

Along with making his second ace of the season, Cantlay blistered a 4-iron as far as he could hit it on the par-5 15th, the ball landing just short of the green and stopping 4 feet away.

South Korean An, who had birdied two of the last four holes for a 69 to complete four sub-70 rounds, joined the Americans in the sudden death play-off.

However, DeChambeau rolled in a nine-footer on a similar line to the one he missed in regulation play, to take the title.

Englishman Justin Rose needed a win to become world number one but a two-under 70 left him three back in joint sixth.
