Rory Mc Ilroy managed just two birdies all day

The 12th proved a pivotal turning point as Cantlay dropped his first shot of the day and DeChambeau leapt into the outright lead with a 10-foot putt for birdie, while Stanley appeared to be out of contention as he ran up a double-bogey five.

Woods wasn't done there, on the next hole, the 42-year-old hit his tee shot off the flag but unfortunately, he wasn't able to putt for birdie as play was stopped due to the threat of lightning.

Bryson DeChambeau captured his second PGA title with a birdie at the second play-off hole to win the Memorial.

Meanwhile, Woods was first in the field in strokes gained, tee to green; first in strokes gained, approach to the green; and first in proximity to the hole, with an average of 23 feet, 8 inches. He played well all day but the highlight was a hole in one at the...

But after a bogey-birdie start to the back nine, five-times victor Woods dropped another shot at the par-four 13th where his drive went out of bounds and all but ended his hopes of an 80th PGA Tour victory.

DeChambeau withstood several charges on moving day, with fellow American Patrick Cantlay bagging a stunning, 185-yard hole-in-one at the par-3 eighth hole before an eagle at the par-5 15th.

Henrik Stenson and Justin Rose each had a 66 and were in the group at 7-under 137, while Dustin Johnson was among those at 138, even though he has played the par 5s in just 1 under for the week. And then he three-putted two of the last three holes, missing a par putt just over 3 feet on the 18th, and all he had to show for it was a 68. He made the turn in 33 with a 15-foot birdie putt on No. 9, and then he made a solid escape from the rough and trees on No. 11 before holing out for eagle.

Trade war back on with China?
But the White House said on Tuesday that a final list of imports slated for tariffs will be published by 15 June. Trade Representative's office regarding Chinese trade practices and stealing of U.S. intellectual property.

"I know I shot 68 today, but that's probably the highest score I probably could've shot today", the five-time Memorial victor said.

"I was releasing the putter beautifully early", Woods said, adding: "My toe was moving nicely".

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

DeChambeau had struggled to make much happen over the front nine as he missed a number of fairways, although he scrambled hard to keep a bogey off his card while picking up a welcome birdie at the fifth. Woods needs to be 50th in the world following The Open or the Canadian Open in July to secure a place in the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, to be played at Firestone Country Club for the last time.

"I'm in position. Hopefully I'm not too far back", he said.

However, Woods shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday in round three to back up his 5-under 67 on Friday.
