The day started off out kind of quiet and not with a lot of excitement. Which I don’t understand why because this is golf, and it is an evil four letter word. And then came the roars as Tiger who was eleven shots back going into the final round came out roaring.

While the leaders were just arriving at the course, Tiger shot a spectacular 31 (-5) on the front nine and was looking absolutely primed to keep it going. His last birdie came on 12, which all competitors were now on the course. At this point and time Tiger was sitting at -11 for the tournament and -7 for the day. Everyone knew what was going on. Tiger ended up fading with a bogies on 14 and 18 to shoot a final round 67 (-5) and a T9 at -9.

Going into the Par 5 11th, Patrick Cantlay was already nipping at Martin Kaymers heels. Kaymar had started the day four shots clear of Cantlay. Sitting 271 yards away, in the middle of the fairway, Cantlay went pin seeking and found himself 10 feet away for an eagle. While he ended up birding the hole, it moved him into a tie for the lead with Kaymer. With birdies on 14 and 15, and Kaymer falling away, Cantlay took the lead for good. Patrick Cantlay has now shot the lowest final round by a winner of The Memorial, with a 64 (-8). He finished at -19 and two shots clear of Adam Scott.

This was Patrick Cantlay’s second career win, and easily puts himself as one of the favorites going into the U.S. Open at Pebble Beach in a couple of weeks.
