Bryson DeChambeau finally got it right on his third try at the 18th hole and won the Memorial in a playoff on Sunday.

When DeChambeau set out at Muirfield Village there were nine players within five strokes of the lead, a list that included Tiger Woods, who for the first three days put on a ball-striking clinic.

After getting par on his first four holes, Woods finished the front nine with a 5-under 31. 14 and 18, but his unique brand of cerebral golf delivered when it mattered, with a downhill 11-footer at the second playoff hole to defeat Byeong Hun An and claim his second PGA Tour title.

He missed birdie chances of 6 feet, 4 feet and 7 feet, and then missed from 3 feet for par on the 17th that left him exasperated.

An closed with a 69. Woods shot a sublime 95-yard wedge within a few feet of the hole and the crowd went wild as the perfectly executed backspin brought the ball into the hole.

"No matter if you're one back or tied for the lead every hole is an opportunity to make a birdie and that's just what I'm going to try and do every single day".

"If I just putt normally, I probably would be right there with those guys and up there in the last couple of groups", Woods said. "Hopefully I can play well like this on the weekend and I've got a great chance of winning this tournament".

DeChambeau missed three-foot birdie putts on the ninth and 15th holes. He leads by one stroke from Kyle Stanley, Patrick Cantlay and Joaquin Niemann.

Former world No.1 Day double-bogeyed the 18th on Saturday to shoot 74 and fall back to six under, one shot ahead of Marc Leishman after the Victorian carded a 67.

Up next for Woods is the U.S. Open, which starts Thursday, June 14.

That didn't last long.

Cantlay's lead evaporated quickly. He looks at it, hits it and doesn't know anything else.

But DeChambeau made his birdie putt to ice the win. He walked toward the tree and couldn't believe where the marshals told him it was. Consequently I missed a bunch of putts.

Phil Mickelson's prospects looked grim after he opened with a 74 and was 3 over through his first eight holes of round two.

With the victory, DeChambeau will move inside the top 20 in the Official World Golf Ranking and is expected to move to eighth on the U.S. Ryder Cup points list.

Stanley was eliminated, but not without one last try.

On the second playoff hole, also the 18th, both players found the fairway.

Niemann, 19, highlighted his round with a 50-foot eagle putt at the par-five seventh.
