Bryson DeChambeau wins Memorial Tournament after play-off

DeChambeau holds nerve in Memorial play-off

Now Bryson DeChambeau can forever be linked with the Golden Bear after he emerged victorious in a three-way playoff on Sunday at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.

South Korea's Kim closed with a five-under 67 to force the playoff and had two long putts to win in the extra session but couldn't get them to fall.

The two-time TOUR victor eventually had to chip from off the green for his par chance only to see the ball unluckily scrape past the hole and leave him eliminated.

A win in Memphis would take care of some unfinished business from previous year, would send Mickelson to the U.S. Open on a high, and would be his 44th victory on TOUR.

"Well, I had some chances to shoot some good rounds this week", Woods said after his last tuneup before the US Open begins at Shinnecock Hills on June 14.

The 24-year-old Californian was congratulated by tournament host Jack Nicklaus following the win and he told Sky Sports: "I feel real honour to be the champion this year. But after hole 12 my chances were looking pretty slim, so to come back and make some birdies coming in ... it's a bit of a sour finish, but proud of the way I hung in there".

But first let's recap how each player got into that playoff.

"I know I shot 68 today, but again, that's probably the highest score I could have possibly shot", five-time Memorial victor Woods said.

Justin Thomas shot 68 and tied for eighth in his debut at No. 1 in the world.

US players will continue to gain points in 2018 at every non-opposite PGA Tour event, WGC and major through the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive, concluding on August 12, 2018. The 19-year-old Chilean missed on becoming the youngest victor on the PGA Tour in the last 87 years, but he grabbed his third top 10 of the season, and it looks like he'll take home special temporary membership with his third top 10 of the year (that means he gets unlimited sponsor exemptions for the rest of 2018). And he did so with a birdie at the last hole, which is one of the five toughest holes on the course! "I played really, really well". "I need to go back and work on drive for next week and then U.S. Open".

DeChambeau gained the advantage again as he followed another flawless three-wood with a much better approach to 12 feet, while An tugged his second towards the gallery before playing a sublime flop-shot to five feet to put the pressure on the American.

Rory McIlroy (T8): McIlroy showed out with a 64-69 weekend that included 11 birdies, 1 eagle and just 2 bogeys. He finished six back at the Memorial and all the damage was done on the greens.

"If I just putt normally, I probably would be right there with those guys and up there in the last couple of groups", Wood said.

Note: Because of potential inclement weather, Sunday tee times have been moved up.

Prior to this tournament, An had posted two top-10s and missed four cuts in 13 tournaments. The South Korean opened the final round with a bogey, and another bogey at the par-3 fourth dropped An to seventh place.
