Rory Mc Ilroy managed just two birdies all day

Tiger Woods was already charging in Round two of the Memorial Tournament when he sent the crowd into a frenzy with a hole-out eagle at the par-5 11th hole. "After that first round I kind of got better and moved up the leaderboard each day". I just didn't really play well.

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

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.

DeChambeau three-putted for bogey on the 18th for a 1-under 71 to get into a three-way playoff at Muirfield Village.

Senior security officials: If Iran acts against Israel, we'll topple Assad
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said after Lavrov spoke that Israel objects to Iran's presence in any part of Syria. Assad said a confrontation between Russian Federation and USA forces over Syria had also been narrowly avoided.

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.

An played first and hit a bad pull that finished left of the green, then DeChambeau hit a 9-iron just past the flag. Consequently I missed a bunch of putts.

Chilean 19-year-old Niemann birdied three of his final five holes, including the last, for a four-under 68 while American Stanley had eight birdies in a 66, leaving them two strokes clear of South Korean An Byeong-hun (67). The second extra hole (No. 18 again) saw An hit an incredible flop to 3 feet for a potentially huge par save.

There are significant concerns about getting Sunday's final round in with storms in the forecast. Woods seems to have found his new old (or old new?) groove, and his play this week is the new expectation going forward.

Italy gridlock shakes up global markets
Earlier it fell to $1.1510, its lowest level since last July before recovering to trade 0.5 percent down on the day at $1.1565. Wall Street is also poised for a lower opening with Dow futures and the broader S&P 500 futures down 0.7 percent.

McIlroy almost missed the cut, surviving on the number after two days.

Woods, playing nearly flawlessly from tee to green, teased the entire tournament when he tied for the lead at 11-under with a birdie on No. 15.

Rose, four adrift going into the final round, had two birdies in his first three holes before dropping two shots on the back nine.

Niemann took the lead with his 50-foot eagle.

Rihanna & More Stars Rooting For the Cavs In The NBA Finals
In his eighth straight NBA Finals, he probably needs to produce numbers like that in every game to give the Cavaliers any chance. The Warriors are at their best when they go with none of the above, using Draymond Green as the centre in a small-ball line-up.

World number one Justin Thomas eagled the 15th and then holed from a bunker to add a birdie at the next, before a birdie at the last gave him a round of 68 and a share of 11th. He fell out of a tie for the lead on the 15th when his shot flared out to the right and caught the corner of a creek, leading to bogey. 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.
