Tiger Woods score: Poor putting ruins winning opportunity at the Memorial Tournament

  • Tiger Woods salvaged his round with a good back nine

Stanley missed his 15-foot par effort to open the door for DeChambeau, who failed to close.

Since his closing 64 at the Masters, Spieth has finished at least 12 shots behind the victor in his three tournaments and missed the cut in his final event before heading to Shinnecock Hills for the U.S. Open. He proved his talent when he finished T-4 in his pro debut at the 2016 RBC Heritage and then earned his opening PGA Tour victory at last year's John Deere Classic.

Before DeChambeau even reached the first tee he had an idea of what kind of day it would be when Woods, who was playing two groups ahead of him, birdied the first hole to move to 10 under par, four strokes back.

An played first and hit a bad pull that finished left of the green, then DeChambeau hit a 9-iron just past the flag. "But I hit it really good this week, so that's a positive going into [the U.S. Open], where ball-striking is going to be a must".

Woods came into the final nine holes at the Memorial Tournament in Dublin, Ohio, sitting at 11 under following his two birdies on the front nine. "This week I didn't really have, didn't feel comfortable with my lines and my feel was a little bit off", said Woods, who tied for 23rd after a closing 72.

"I didn't score that well", he added, especially lamenting having played the par-5 11th hole in 2 over for the week. He made bogey for a 70 and still got into a playoff, but he was eliminated on the first extra hole when his approach from deep rough and the ball well above his feet squirted to the right, leading to a bogey.

Earlier this year, DeChambeau was in position to win an event where a golfing legend served as a longtime host (the Arnold Palmer Invitational) before Rory McIlroy went on a late run of birdies to run away from the field.


An almost got away with his mistake on the second playoff hole, which he pulled into the gallery.

DeChambeau said his brilliant putting display was his best since he captured the 2015 US Amateur title.

Ironically it was the same putt An had in regulation that would have won the tournament. But at least I had a chance.

"It is my best finish so far this season, which is pretty good". Stanley, Patrick Cantlay and Joaquin Niemann were tied for second.

But there's a lot more to what will unfold Sunday at Muirfield than Woods, who's tied for seventh after shooting 68 on Saturday.

"This definitely gives me confidence going onward and then if I keep giving myself a chance, then I think I will have a win soon".

Adam Scott is just outside the top 10 in Ohio.
