Summerhays takes advantage of Dufner collapse at Memorial

04 June 2017, 06:25 | Stacy Ballard

Daniel Summerhays was surprised to find himself with a three-shot lead after roaring past a faltering Jason Dufner in the third round at the Memorial tournament in Dublin, Ohio on Saturday.

A bad day of breathing is short and quick. Maybe it was respect for a hard golf course. "So, I won't be quite expecting to shoot 14-under on the weekend".

The former US PGA champion, seeking a fifth PGA Tour title, sits alongside Bubba Watson (68) and Justin Thomas (69). He tried to play a ideal shot and barely got it out, then chipped down to 5 feet and missed the putt, making double bogey. I made some nice pars and rolled in some putts. The greens may have been a touch on the slower side, maybe half a foot slower.

"Every time I've showed up here I've had good feelings about this place. Really looking forward to the weekend".

"Whatever happens is going to happen", Summerhays said after his round. "But it probably would have been pretty close for a birdie opportunity".

"I'm in good position, not as good as I'd like to be but you don't get to shoot 77 very often and still have a chance to win". "I'm not going to lie, I watched a few of Dufs highlights, the hole-out on 18 and everything. So I'll take it and move on".

He rebounded, however, with five birdies on his inward run. He had played great golf his first two rounds, shooting 66-69 to get to nine-under for the week.

The Memorial has been unkind to Fowler in recent years.

"It not only helps me with my stroke but also helps with my set-up", he said. "Overall I'm really pleased with the round". "And the other years I've played here, I've always loved it".

Neither Ko nor Ariya are playing this week's 54 hole event. How do you play these situations? It's been working. I've been using it all year. "But I know that there's been times with my putting that the thought process and my actions have felt like they've been sped up and too quick". More than his solid round was Dufner's collapse.

After four holes Thursday, Fowler was 4-over.

Scott was the best of the Australians on day two but it is Victoria's Marc Leishman who is best placed overall after adding his second consecutive 70 to be 4-under and remain T13. 6, 7 and 8. Dufner posted a 3-1 record that week, and when he returned to the Memorial in 2014, he was at par or better over his next six rounds.

Muirfield Village member Jason Day (71) is 2 over after 36 holes, skirting clear of the cut line by two shots. Ryu had her second straight 74 to miss the cut by three strokes. Only seven players in the field finished worse. He's top five in approach shots and putting so far, though, so if he can correct that 67th position off the tee, then he could easily sidle up to his first Memorial trophy on Sunday afternoon.
