Dublin, OH (Sports Network) - Matt Kuchar carded a 4-under 68 on Sunday and
rolled to a 2-stroke victory at the Memorial Tournament.
Ahead by two entering the final round at Muirfield Village Golf Club, Kuchar
never relented the advantage, pushing his lead to four shots on the back nine
before sinking a 21-foot birdie putt on the last to finish at 12-under-par
It is the sixth career PGA Tour win for Kuchar and his second of the season
after February's WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship triumph.
Kevin Chappell birdied four of his last six holes but couldn't overtake
Kuchar, instead grabbing solo second at 10-under after a final-round 68. Kyle
Stanley (71) placed third at 7-under, while Scott Stallings (67) and Bill Haas
(71) tied for fourth at minus-6.
Tiger Woods entered this tournament with four wins in seven starts on the
season, but he never found his form at Muirfield Village. The defending
champion posted four rounds in the 70s, including Saturday's 79, which matched
his career-worst score in a non-major. He opened that round with an outward
44, the highest 9-hole score of his career, then shot even par on Sunday to
finish tied for 65th at 8-over 296.
