Jason Dufner: Overnight leader Dufner backs up w/ 77 in R3

Jason Dufner: Overnight leader Dufner backs up w/ 77 in R3

The last three winners of the Memorial had never won on the PGA Tour.

Summerhays carded a four-under par 68 for a 13-under par total of 203. Graeme Storm (68) and Max Orrin (73) of England and Benjamin Hebert (71) of France were three shots back. He dropped two shots on the back nine but also birdied the 15th to leave himself on four under for the tournament.

A rock-solid par at the last kept him three clear of 2013 champion Kuchar, who closed out an outward 34 with back-to-back birdies and picked up four birdies in five holes from the 13th, although a blocked tee shot at the short 16th led to his only blemish of the round. "Playing in the last two or three groups at the US Open, that was probably the most nervous I've ever felt". Scott bogeyed his first hole, No. 10, before carding nine pars, six birdies, an eagle, and a bogey over the final 17 holes.

"I played great today", Summerhays said. Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, and Jamie Lovemark are eight-strokes off the lead after two-rounds. "But I'm more focused on my breathing and I'm at with that". "Even if it doesn't shake out how I want to [Sunday], I think I'll be like, 'Oh, where's the next hole I need to go play?" Johnson, who had three wins this season before he hurt his back in a fall that forced him out of the Masters in April, teed off on 10 and posted a triple-bogey six at the par-three 16th, where he was in the water.

So, after it looked as if a Dufner had put this tournament to sleep before the weekend began, a real, live competition has broken out at Muirfield, where a Sunday shootout looms. "I can always get into the top five and there's a lot of FedEx Cup points and prize money at stake", said Leishman. Coming off a 78 - and his first round without a birdie in almost four years - Johnson couldn't get anything going and shot 74 to miss the cut by five shots.

Dufner had a six-shot lead over Fowler when he finished, and then had to wait to see what kind of margin he would have going into the weekend.

Trump meets Pope Francis at Vatican
The meeting appeared quite respectful but the Pope left Trump with an epic gift: the encyclical he penned on climate change. Trump will soon be leaving Rome, en route to Brussels for meetings with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders.

"I made some nice pars and rolled in some putts", the 2013 PGA Championship victor added, although the highlight of his day didn't involve putting.

The four-time victor on the PGA Tour threatened to run away with the tournament after breaking the event's 36-hole record at Muirfield Village on Friday but he faded dramatically, holing six bogeys and a double-bogey.

Ryu had four straight bogeys in a 74 that left her tied for 98th and in danger of missing the cut.

Kevin Streelman (67) and Kevin Kisner (70) are also seven under.

World No.3 Jason Day has cursed sluggish starts at his hometown event but is desperate to find consistency in his final hit-out before the US Open.
