Dufner rebounds to earn fifth PGA Tour victory

A second delay created concern whether the players would be able to finish before darkness set in, but there was enough time to conclude the event with Dufner raising the title.

Dufner will move from 56th to 13th in the FedExCup with Sunday's victory. Matt Kuchar had a 67 and was three back. "He had two fantastic days".

Rookie Brett Coletta has demonstrated his pedigree as Australia's next US PGA Tour star with two gutsy rounds at the Memorial Tournament in Columbus, Ohio.

"It was important for me not to leave this golf course angry and upset", Dufner said.

Brian Stuard (Jackson) made the cut at par 144 after shooting a 74.

Chasing him was Fowler, who is himself no stranger to inconsistency. Summerhays actually had a chance to extend his lead to four shots, but his birdie putt on 18 came up just a couple inches short. So I played with those guys a lot.

Mickelson has not missed the U.S. Open since his first full season as a pro in 1993.

Ariya Jutanugarn took the No. 1 spot in the world ranking without hitting a shot, and Paula Creamer and In-Kyung Kim lead the ShopRite LPGA Classic in Galloway Township, New Jersey. So did Tony Finau, who birdied his last three.

Dufner now might be deluged by his peers looking for the same reading material that got him into the winner's circle. He ended with a three-stroke lead. It landed past the pin and spun back into the hole for an eagle. Dufner had a pair of three-putts, and he twice missed birdie putts from 6 feet. "It's tough to change".

"Obviously yesterday wasn t my best day", Dufner said.

"You have a lot of setbacks out here on the PGA Tour, to rebound from it (Saturday's round) and give myself a chance to win - I was going to be proud whether I won today or not because I got back in contention and that's what all of us want to do come Sunday at the PGA Tour", Dufner said. "Subconsciously, I'm just putting".

"Just got off to a bad start, couldn't get anything going and then you're fighting it". "And I think just being part of history in golf is unbelievable to me". And I'm trying to slow down and focus on that breathing. "I tried to sneak up on the leaderboard at one stage", Coletta told AAP. This is the first time I've said anything about it.

Rickie Fowler hits form the first fairway during the final round of the Memorial golf tournament, Sunday, June 4, 2017, in Dublin, Ohio.

Fowler followed his 6-under 66 on Friday with an even-par 72 on Saturday.

Play resumed at approximately 8:06 on Golf Channel. They're working hard at it.

"It's good for staying calm, " he said.

"He's one of a kind", he said earlier in the week. I know he would do anything for me.

Queenslander Day had never finished inside the top-25 in eight previous starts at Muirfield Village, where he is a member.

Dufner matches the second-highest third-round score from an eventual victor in a non-major PGA Tour event since 1983. He still doesn't have a top 10, but he has figured something out.

Daniel Summerhays took a three-shot lead into the final round but he quickly fell away and his lead had gone within four holes.

Moriya Jutanugarn and Lee each shot 70.
