DeChambeau leads by one, Woods in the hunt at Memorial

Japanese golfer Hideki Matsuyama

But it was Woods that brought out the biggest roars at Muirfield Village Golf Club as he moved within six strokes of the lead. On his third try, he hit his approach to 12 feet behind the hole and made it for birdie to beat Byeong Hun An and win for the second time on the PGA Tour.

What a putt. What a reaction.

Stanley ran off four straight birdies, the last one from 30 feet to tie DeChambeau for the lead. In his most recent appearance at Muirfield Village, he shot 85 in the third round for his highest score as a professional. "Hopefully I can play well like this on the weekend and I've got a great chance of winning this tournament".

"It's a strong field on the leader-board and I think everybody's going to go out there and try to make the most birdies possible", Niemann said. He did well to advance it 100 yards down the fairway, and he missed a 15-foot par putt.

Since his closing 64 at the Masters, Spieth has finished at least 12 shots behind the victor in his three tournaments and missed the cut in his final event before heading to Shinnecock Hills for the U.S. Open. Overnight co-leaders Niemann and Stanley both carded 70 while Cantlay's 66 included two eagles, one of them a hole-in-one at the par-three eighth.

He finished with a 4-under-par 68, but much like Friday when he shot 67, he walked off disappointed rather than exuberant.

And he was six shots behind with almost two dozen players in front of him.

Adam Scott is the leading Australian at eight under following a two-under 70, while countryman Jason Day struggled to capitalise on his solid play during the first two rounds. I just didn't really play well. I can't believe I'm saying this five months into his latest comeback, but I fully expect him to play well enough to contend for it.

"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. Thomas, Johnson (No. 2), Justin Rose (No. 3) and Jordan Spieth (No. 5) have a mathematical chance of reaching No. 1.

Woods was finishing when a long final round took shape over the last few holes.

Bryson DeChambeau lists physics as a special interest, describes his current swing theory as an exploration of the anatomical limits of the body and instead of a dream foursome he rattles off a list of physicist, including Albert Einstein, he'd like to meet.

DeChambeau failed to take advantage, however, three-putting from 55 feet to fall into the three-way playoff.

The highlight of his premature round was at the Par-5 11th.
