Stanley, Niemann lead as Spieth misses cut at Memorial

However, attendees will have been disappointed that Jordan Spieth's bogey-bogey finish resulted in a three-over 72 that put him three shots below the projected cut line. "Ecstatic about where I am".

South Korea's An Byeong-hun was in fifth at 12-under 204, two strokes ahead of Englishman Justin Rose (69), who is looking for his second straight PGA Tour win after his victory at the Fort Worth Invitational in Texas.

DUBLIN, Ohio - The final-round charge fizzled, and after a week that showed so much promise, Tiger Woods had to settle for a spot in the back, 6 shots out of a playoff at the Memorial Tournament.

"I recall in the '86 Masters I hadn't won for a couple of years and I got to the last round, and I got into the back nine after struggling on the front nine but then I made a putt on nine and I finally remembered how to play". I played beautifully, actually.

"I just need to hit better putts". And then he stalled, just like he did on Friday.

The 42-year old Woods has returned to the Nicklaus hosted Memorial for a first occasion since 2015 to tee-up in what will be his ninth event of 2018, and for a first occasion since sharing 11th place earlier this month in the Players Championship.

That didn't last long.

More thunderstorms were expected Sunday.

"The weather is going to be a little iffy", Woods said.

Rory McIlroy, remarkably, has reason to feel the same way. Thomas shot a 68 with three bogeys and was seven off the lead. He played bogey-free for a 64 and wound up just six shots behind.

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 7 strokes better and been leading or certainly in a position to chase down eventual playoff victor Bryson DeChambeau.

For the week, Woods made just one birdie over the closing three holes and played them in 3 over par.

Along with making his second ace of the season, Cantlay blistered a four-iron as far as he could hit it on the par-five 15, the ball landing just short of the green and stopping four feet away.
