Bryson DeChambeau gets Memorial win in a playoff

The finish was no less entertaining.

DeChambeau, who won the NCAA individual golf title while at SMU in 2015, three-putted for bogey on the 18th for a 1-under 71 to get into a three-way playoff at Muirfield Village.

An closed with a 69.

Jutanugarn, a 22-year-old from Thailand, made a clutch bunker shot to within a foot of the hole to save par, beating South Korea's Hyo-Joo Kim, who shot a 5-under 67 in the final round to force the playoff.

His tee shot in regulation was slightly right but it took a very hard kick off a tree and crossed the entire fairway into deep left rough forcing a lay-up. Even so, he could only advance it 100 yards and made bogey for a 70.

In the playoff, his tee shot was enough to the right that the ball was well above his feet in thick grass.

But first let's recap how each player got into that playoff.

"A couple bad breaks on 18", Stanley said.

"I felt, from probably 7 on, I played pretty well", he said.

American Kyle Stanley was eliminated with a bogey at the first extra hole as DeChambeau and An both parred.

Bryson DeChambeau holed a 12-foot putt for birdie on the second play-off hole to clinch his second PGA Tour title at The Memorial Tournament.

When Bryson DeChambeau won the DAP Championship on the Web.com Tour in September 2016, he boldly proclaimed about his single-length clubs, "I think this was an important day". This week I didn't feel comfortable with my lines and my feel was a little bit off.

Stanley, tied for the lead after Friday's second round, shot a 2-under-par 70 on Saturday and enters Sunday's final round tied for second place in the PGA Tour event. Starting five shots behind, Woods pulled to within three shots with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 fifth hole.

Patrick Cantlay was fourth on 14 under, just ahead of Peter Uihlein, whose six-under-par 66 was only eclipsed by Louis Oosthuizen's 65.

The finish was enough for Niemann, playing just his fifth event since turning pro after the Masters in April, to secure special temporary membership status on the US PGA Tour, which allows him unlimited starts for the remainder of the season.

Dustin Johnson, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Justin Thomas all tied for eighth at 11 under. He will keep that ranking going into the U.S. Open.

Smith started the tournament with back-to-back 67s, but shot a 74 in the third round and didn't make a birdie to fall into second place.

A birdie three was enough to seal his first win of the year, An unable to match him as he made a par.

Woods was second to last in the key putting statistic among the 73 players who went all four rounds.

"Look, people think that all the stuff that I do is insane, it's crazy", said DeChambeau, who's more comfortable discussing physics than golf clubs.

Eleven of the top 12 golfers in the U.S. Ryder Cup Team standings maintained their positioning inside the top 12 as Aaron Wise was the only golfer to drop out.

DeChambeau will be there, too, his confidence higher than ever.
