Tiger Woods sinks 14-foot putt at PGA Memorial Tournament

19-year-old from Chile besting big names at the Memorial

"Overall, my game is where it needs to be heading into the US Open and that's very positive", said Woods, who finished tied for 17th on 10-over par the last time the US Open was played at Shinnecock Hills in 2004.

Niemann is just 19 years old, and sits atop the leaderboard with nine holes left to play. "Had total control of what I was doing out there and just didn't finish it off".

Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy, Ryan Armour, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Jason Day, Jordan Spieth, Justin Rose and defending champion Jason Dufner were among those in the field at the outset.

DeChambeau failed to hole his 8-footer for par to win the Memorial in regulation, but he wasn't fazed.

Stanley missed his 15-foot par effort to open the door for DeChambeau, who failed to close.

Tiger could easily have the lead at this point, but struggled with the putter and finds himself four shots back of the leader, Joaquin Niemann, who is looking to become the youngest victor on the PGA Tour since 1931. 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.

A 90-minute weather day seemed to boring his momentum as the former world number one made pars on the next three holes but he snatched his fifth birdie at 15 before giving the shot back at the 17th to finish on a combined 139.

Woods ended the week flying high in the tee-to-green statistics, but his putting ranking was second-bottom of the players who made the cut as he three-putted five times and also missed seven putts from inside five feet. The disappointment of losing a playoff against Bryson DeChambeau was evident for both Kyle Stanley and Byeong Hun An but the pair vowed to use it as motivation going forward in their quest for the FedExCup.

The persistent Knights earned a power play and cut the Caps' lead to 3-2 late in the second on Theodore's shot through traffic. Maple Leafs fans seem to be taking that Marleau comparison (and the team's heaps of cap room) to the next level.

"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.

"I am definitely not taking advantage of how well I'm hitting it", said Woods, who hit 15 of 18 greens and made his only bogeys by twice three-putting.

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

DeChambeau and Woods have become friends in recent months, regularly playing practice rounds together and discussing whatever golf savants discuss.

"The weather is going to be a little iffy", Woods said.

Woods shot scores of 72-67-68-72 to finish at 9 under par. He now heads to Memphis for the FedEx St. Jude Classic at TPC Southwind, a course he says is one of the most underrated on the PGA TOUR.

Along with making his second ace of the season, Cantlay blistered a 4-iron as far as he could hit it on the par-5 15th, the ball landing just short of the green and stopping 4 feet away.
