Jason Dufner bounces back for 5th PGA Tour victory at Memorial

He had to wait out a weather delay of more than an hour after his drive had settled into thick rough at the par-four 18th. He could only advance the ball 75 yards on his second shot and did not get back to the fairway.

He even finished with a flourish, holing with a superb 36-foot putt to save par on the final green.

Summerhays was seen getting a handshake from Jack Nicklaus when he came off the final green and the two talked for several seconds. "But I had to get over it quick". There's a lot of things that can happen and I knew I was still in the mix.

Fowler took sole possession of the lead on the back nine after playing his first 11 holes in four under, but two late bogeys sealed his fate. He missed several close-range birdie putts that left him 9-under and T4 with Matt Kuchar, who had a similarly frustrating day that could have been so much better.

Bubba Watson, Kevin Kisner, James Hahn and Kyle Stanley all tied for sixth at 8 under. No evidence supports this contention, but locals point to the number of weather delays that have plagued the Memorial as evidence of a curse.

So on a week when Dufner was really, really good and also quite bad, he learned both lessons and came away with a new swing routine and trophy. He had bogeyed 18 twice in his previous three rounds.

Six players had yet to finish. In the six appearances leading up to this year's tournament, he missed the cut three times and in the other didn't finish above a tie for 22nd place.

"When the rain started coming in, the ball got wet and started to jump a little bit and go a little further", Fowler said. After opening in 70-66-72, he began T6, five back of 54-hole leader Daniel Summerhays. "Legitimately from the first hole to the 18th hole, there's a double bogey somewhere in there".

After finding the middle of the green with his third, the 2013 PGA Champion rolled in his longest-made putt of the week and pumped his fist in what counts for him as a wild celebration given his typically calm demeanor.

"I have to play better tomorrow". "I was able to get rid of some mistakes I made yesterday".

"There's been times where I've fallen in and out of love with golf, to be honest with you", he admitted. It would be best for me today. "I honestly did", Summerhays said. All week I feel like I've been fighting my swing and probably surprised myself with a lot of the good shots I hit this week. He tried to play a flawless shot and barely got it out, then chipped down to 5 feet and missed the putt, making double bogey. I thought I was in control. The Sheffield golfer, who now heads off to play in the US Open, will be disappointed not to have won, but will be delighted to have rediscovered some form. However, he came back with a pair of birdies at the par-5 5th and 7th holes to get back to 12-under for the tournament.

"Overall we've had a great week, but it's hard when you can't close it out".

After shooting even par on the front nine, Dufner made birdies on 10, 12, 15 and 17. "Also to be here at a nice tournament like this with this crowd has been really good", Paratore said.

Mickelson said he had notified the US Golf Association (USGA) of his decision well in advance so that the organising body as well as his replacement would not be caught off guard.
