Tiger Woods holes out for eagle Friday at the Memorial Tournament

Bryson DeChambeau tees off on the ninth hole during the third round of The Memorial golf tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

Tiger Woods ignited the galleries at the Memorial Tournament in OH on Friday with a five-under par 67 but still has a lot of work to do if he is to catch the leading pair of Joaquin Niemann and Kyle Stanley, who top the leaderboard on 11-under 133.

Meanwhile, Woods was first in the field in strokes gained, tee to green; first in strokes gained, approach to the green; and first in proximity to the hole, with an average of 23 feet, 8 inches.

Another challenge came from Tiger Woods as the five-time Memorial victor hung on to his place among the contenders during a four-under-par 68 to improve his tournament total to nine under.

Stanley failed to scramble his par after DeChambeau left his tentative first putt eight feet short, and his putt for victory veered across the front of the hole and missed on the low side.

"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".

Tiger Woods flirted with the top of the leaderboard Saturday at the Memorial Tournament, but a couple of late bogeys ended his momentum. He holed out with a sand wedge from 97 yards for eagle on the par-5 11th hole, and then his tee shot on the par-3 12th struck the flag waving in the wind and settled 6 feet behind the hole.

Trump won Tennessee decidedly in 2016 and remains popular there. "We have been very pleased with the response to that". Trump on Tuesday criticised Mexico for not helping to stop the flow of illegal immigrants into the United States.

"I think he's amusing", Kim said.

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

DeChambeau gained the advantage again as he followed another flawless three-wood with a much better approach to 12 feet, while An tugged his second towards the gallery before playing a sublime flop-shot to five feet to put the pressure on the American. "I've got a good feel for what I'm doing". Last week: Justin Rose won the Fort Worth Invitational at Colonial.

"I know I shot 68 today, but that's probably the highest score I probably could've shot today", the five-time Memorial victor said.

"I was releasing the putting beautifully early", he said. But he didn't make a birdie over his last 10 holes, and he fell back when he went bunker-to-bunker on the 17th and made bogey to fall two strokes behind. DeChambeau rolled in a 20-foot birdie on the par-3 16th, and he hit 9-iron to 5 feet on the toughest hole, the 18th.

Henrik Stenson (66) and Justin Rose (66) were among five at 137 with Dustin Johnson (66), Bubba Watson (67) and Adam Scott (66) also in contention at 138. He sits at nine-under for the tournament.
