DeChambeau takes 1-shot lead as Woods lurks at Memorial

DeChambeau takes 1-shot lead as Woods lurks at Memorial

Tiger Woods needed something special on Sunday in Round 4 of the 2018 Memorial Tournament to have a real chance at picking up his sixth win at Muirfield Village.

On Thursday, Woods started on the more hard back nine, played his first two par-5s in three over and stood at four over after seven holes.

He is contesting just a fifth US PGA Tour event since turning pro straight after the Masters in April, and the Santiago-born teenager said he will draw on his amateur successes as he tries to win on Sunday, when the field will tee off early from the first and 10th tee as organizers try to beat expected inclement weather. He did well to advance it 100 yards down the fairway, and he missed a 15-foot par putt.

Cantlay made two eagles, including a hole-in-one on the par-3 eighth.

For Woods, the last memory of his four rounds at Muirfield Village will be sublime ballstriking, the best in the field and better than anything he has produced going back to the first of his four back surgeries.

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

If you're a Tiger fan, the exciting news heading into the U.S. Open in two weeks is that this is as good as he's looked all year - and probably in the last half decade - from a swing standpoint.

DeChambeau failed to take advantage, however, three-putting from 55 feet to fall into the three-way playoff.

For 72 holes, Woods was -7.695 meaning he gave up more than 7 shots on the greens; had that number been 0, in theory he would have finished seven strokes better and been leading or certainly in a position to chase down eventual playoff victor Bryson DeChambeau. Notes: Tiger Woods, a five-time Memorial victor, is playing for the first time since 2015. Woods needs to be 50th in the world following The Open or the Canadian Open in July to secure a place in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, to be played at Firestone Country Club for the last time. I just didn't really play well.

World number one Justin Thomas eagled the 15th and then holed from a bunker to add a birdie at the next, before a birdie at the last gave him a round of 68 and a share of 11th.

Bryson DeChambeau ended an action-packed Saturday by making one of only six birdies on the par-3 16th hole, saving par with a tough flop shot from behind the 17th green and finishing off a 6-under 66 with a 9-iron into 5 feet. Thomas, Johnson (No. 2), Justin Rose (No. 3) and Jordan Spieth (No. 5) have a mathematical chance of reaching No. 1.

Niemann, 19, highlighted his round with a 50-foot eagle putt at the par-five seventh.

Rose, four adrift going into the final round, had two birdies in his first three holes before dropping two shots on the back nine.
