  • Rickie Fowler tees off on the 11th hole during the second round of the Memorial golf tournament Friday

DUBLIN, Ohio-Daniel Summerhays shot a 4-under 68 that took him from a five-shot deficit to a three-shot lead Saturday in the Memorial.

Jason Dufner made four back-nine birdies and rebounded from a disastrous third round to win the weather-delayed Memorial on Sunday at Muirfield Village.

First among them was Rickie Fowler, whom Dufner put away with a 30-foot par save on the 18th hole at Muirfield Village for a 4-under 68 to complete an awesome turnaround.

Summerhays subsequently pulled away, carding 68 for 13-under 203 to move within sight of a first PGA Tour victory, while Matt Kuchar shot 67 to move into second place on 10-under. With Dufner getting the ceremonial greeting and handshake from tournament host Jack Nicklaus at the back of the 18th green and hoisting the trophy. He missed a 6-foot par putt on the third, then hit into the right bunker on the par-3 4th and made another bogey.

Summerhays has led after 54 holes three times on the PGA Tour. His third shot found the green and he drained a 33-foot par putt to cap his day.

"Majors are very hard to win, but I feel like I have the type of game to compete".

When play resumed, Dufner, trying to chip out, failed to do so, leaving his second shot still in the rough. A swift hack through the wet grass managed to push the ball 75 yards forward, leaving Dufner 119 from the pin - and still in the rough. He was joined by Jamie Lovemark (69) and Justin Thomas (71). After missing a pair of birdie chances in the 12-foot range on the next holes, he hit the par-5 15th in two and two-putted for birdie from 40 feet to take the lead. I didn't come straight out of college and play the PGA Tour.

When he walked off 18, after draining his long putt, the first person to greet him was tournament host and 18-time major victor Jack Nicklaus.

Upstaging better-known countrymen Adam Scott and Jason Day, Coletta backed up his opening 72 at Muirfield Village with a three-under-par 69 to sit well inside the projected cutline of two-over. I almost had a chance to win there."I really don't have any goals tomorrow besides give all my efforts into each shot", Summerhays said.While there was no pressure on the long putt, Dufner sank it anyway."My game's really solid right now". I just needed to get myself together. The 28-year-old South Korean player won the Reignwood LPGA Classic late last season in China. It's a 72-hole tournament.

"I'd love to keep that trend going", he said. "So for me to be around them I think helped me kind of get to this point". "Making the turn at even was good, and I felt comfortable to get a little aggressive on the back". He missed the putts he had been making for two days. Dufner's was good enough by three for victory No. 5 in his PGA Tour career.

"How could you complain about the weather we had this week, " he said. I can't really feel my heartbeat, slowing my heartbeat down, but that's the obvious goal.
