DeChambeau surges into lead with 66 at Memorial

After an opening 70 (3 birdies, 3 bogeys, 1 eagle), he improves to 7-for-11 at Muirfield Village, avenging a missed cut past year by seven, his first MC since 2009. The year prior, in the midst of a five-victory season, he had a third-round 79 and finished 65th.

"Well, I was at 11-under par, and I had wasted a bunch of shots the last two days and I was four-over par in the first round", he said. "Ecstatic about where I am".

Tiger Woods ignited the galleries at the Memorial Tournament in OH on Friday with a five-under par 67 but still has a lot of work to do if he is to catch the leading pair of Joaquin Niemann and Kyle Stanley, who top the leaderboard on 11-under 133.

Six players had at least a share of the lead at some point. Woods ran his 45-foot birdie putt about seven feet by on the par-three 16 and missed it coming back, and then closed by missing a three-foot par putt.

Woods, a five-time victor at the US PGA Tour event in Columbus, Ohio, turned on a vintage display which sent the large crowds into a frenzy when he holed out for eagle with a wedge from 95 yards at the par-5 11th.

South Korean An Byeong-hun fired a five-under 67 to be in outright third at nine under in Dublin, Ohio, where play was suspended for 90 minutes during the afternoon due to weather. He didn't make another birdie until the par-5 15th, when his sharp-breaking 15-footer dropped to give him a tie for the lead.

More thunderstorms were expected Sunday. "Overall, if I just keep building on this, with how I'm hitting it right now, I'm in good shape for two weeks from now".

Rory McIlroy, remarkably, has reason to feel the same way.

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 7 strokes better and been leading or certainly in a position to chase down eventual playoff victor Bryson DeChambeau. World number one Justin Thomas was two under through 12.

Stanley was also happy with the way he has been hitting the ball.

Niemann took the lead with his 50-foot eagle.
