Bryson DeChambeau leads the 2018 Memorial Tournament after three rounds following his 6-under 66 on Saturday which took him to 14 under overall and gave him a one-stroke lead on Patrick Cantlay, Joaquin Niemann and Kyle Stanley. He's also up two on Ben An and four on Justin Rose. DeChambeau, who is looking for his second career PGA Tour win, birdied four of his last six holes and led the field in driving on Saturday. He didn't putt very well in Round 3, but he's been awesome on the greens this week which is normally a harbinger of great things to come for him (as it is with most of the elite ball-strikers).

A storm system that rolled through Muirfield Village late Saturday only further muddled the outlook at the Memorial. Emiliano Grillo had the lead, came back from a 2 1/2-hour delay and promptly made double-bogey. Matt Kuchar was rolling along after recovering from a freak bounce early in his round only to chop his way to bogey on the final hole.
Five holes into the second round of the Memorial, Rory McIlroy had three birdies and Jordan Spieth had two bogeys. They were going opposition directions and thinking about the same destination.

The Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio starts on Thursday and it’s primed to be one of the best non-major events of the year.

Day won the Players, McIlroy won the Irish Open, and Spieth won last week at the Dean and DeLuca Invitational.

Brendon Todd and Chris Kirk bear a keen facial resemblance. But the similarities between the four-year college roommates ends there. “Couldn’t find two more opposite guys. Great friends, but way opposite,” said Jim Douglas, a longtime Georgia assistant coach. “Kirk doesn’t know whether the sun’s coming up tomorrow, and BT will tell you what minute it’s coming up. BT is meticulous and does everything right and works hard. It would fry him that Kirk would come out here in flip-flops and beat him.”

Most of the perks from winning the Memorial were evident to Matt Kuchar soon after his 20-foot birdie putt tumbled into the final hole Sunday. He looked just beyond the 18th green to where 3-year-old son Carson was giving a high-five to tournament host Jack Nicklaus. He had the first multiple-win season of his PGA Tour career. Kuchar went to a career-best No. 4 in the world ranking. He is all but assured of returning to Muirfield Village in October as part of the Presidents Cup team.
Many of the best players are out in force this week for the Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio, this week. Muirfield Village, of course, is the creation of one Jack Nicklaus, the host. In 2012, Tiger Woods won the Memorial for the fifth time in his career, which is two more than any other players in the tournament’s history. Furthermore, Woods will be making his first start since winning The Players Championship and – hard as it is to believe – Woods’s four wins thus far in 2013 are the most in any one season he’s ever had in his career heading into the Memorial.
*The fist-pump for Tiger Woods returned in grand fashion Sunday following another epic chip shot en route to his victory at Jack Nicklaus’ PGA Memorial tournament. With golf icon Nicklaus watching in amazement, Tiger birdied three of the last four holes to win his 73rd PGA title, his fifth Memorial title and second win since his infamous sex scandal erupted in November 2009.
