Kuchar Earns Victory at Memorial Tournament
Matt Kuchar carded a 4-under 68 on Sunday and earned a two-stroke victory at the Memorial Tournament. Ahead by two entering the final round at Muirfield Village Golf Club, Kuchar never relinquished the advantage, pushing his lead to four shots on the back nine before sinking a 21-foot birdie putt on the last to finish at 12-under par for his sixth career PGA Tour win and second of the season after February's WGC-Match Play Championship triumph. Kevin Chappell birdied four of his last six holes but couldn't overtake Kuchar, instead grabbing solo second at 10-under after a final-round 68. Defending champion Tiger Woods posted four rounds in the 70s, including Saturday's 79,
which matched his career-worst score in a non-major. Woods shot even par on Sunday to finish tied for 65th at 8-over par.
