Patrick Cantlay & # 39; s magnificent eight-under-par round of 64 won the Memorial Tournament as Martin Kaymer's hope for a first victory since 2014, crumbled.

The German two-time big winner was four strokes ahead of the American, but four bogeys cost him a lot.

He finished third in 15th place, three behind Cantlay and one drift shot of Adam Scott in Australia in second place.

Three-time winner Jordan Spieth was seventh on 10 under with Masters winner Tiger Woods nine under.

The 15-time big champion sunk seven birdies in his first 12 holes, but his load slowed down on the last nine with bogeys on the 14th and final hole.

Woods said: "I hit the ball so crispy and solid. I made a few nice putts on the front nine.

" I wanted to have something positive going through to the US Open in a Top 10 – I wanted to end up with double figures, but it wasn't. "

Cantlay was embraced by Jack Nicklaus, founder of the course, and afterwards said that the moment with the 18-fold big winner" meant a lot ".

Nicklaus had also seen the former world champion Amateurs advice on how to close. Cantlay added, "He told me to record, sit back and enjoy the moment."

Former US Open champion Justin Rose was the best of the British group when he became 13th on eight under, while Danny in England Willett and Scot Russell Knox were four under for the tournament.

The Luke Donald from England, who managed to score a 65 on Saturday, drove around in 80 strokes for two over par overall.
