Kuchar Earns Victory at Memorial Tournament

Matt Kuchar carded a 4-under 68  on Sunday and earned a two-stroke victory  at the  Memorial  Tournament. Ahead by two  entering the final round at Muirfield Village Golf Club,  Kuchar never relinquished the advantage, pushing his lead to four shots  on the back nine  before sinking a  21-foot birdie putt  on the last to finish at 12-under par for his sixth career PGA Tour win and second of the  season  after  February's  WGC-Match  Play  Championship  triumph.  Kevin Chappell  birdied four  of his last  six holes  but couldn't  overtake Kuchar, instead  grabbing solo second  at 10-under  after a final-round 68.  Defending champion  Tiger Woods  posted four rounds in the 70s, including Saturday's 79,
which  matched  his career-worst score in  a non-major. Woods shot even par on Sunday to finish tied for 65th at 8-over par.
