Kaymer, who started on the back nine, was bogey-free through 17 holes and posted five birdies before missing the green on No. 9 and made bogey on his final hole of the day to drop into the tied with Merritt and Lee. Cantlay played the first one and finished one shot behind Trevor Immelman.
Cantlay first met Nicklaus, the tournament host, in 2011 when he won the Jack Nicklaus Award as the top player in college at UCLA.
Li's commendable finish on a week where he enjoyed meeting Nicklaus during a practice round saw him increase his FedEx Cup points tally to 243.
Cantlay finished at 19-under 269 and won for the second time in a PGA Tour career that is younger than it seems.
Drake Gets Roasted On Twitter After Warrios Beat Raptors In Game 2
The Warriors came from behind after the first half to beat the Raptors during Game 2, tying up the Finals at one game apiece. Shawn Livingston made a good catch and flung it to Iguodala, who drained the 3 and sealed the Game 2 win to even the Finals.
He is in his third full year since returning, and a victory over a strong field on a strong course is what long was expected of his skills. It's a rite of passage and something that happens every tournament at Muirfield Village. At the end of the 15-time Major had a Champion from the US, ten strokes behind the victor Cantlay. The two-time major victor started to press, making an attempt at a hero's recovery on the final par-5 of the championship. "I think he's a good putter and overall just a solid player". He is 15 under for the tournament - the lowest 54-hole score of his career.
It left him and his caddie, Joe LaCava, very bullish on his form entering the U.S. Open in less than two weeks at Pebble Beach, the site of Woods' record-setting U.S. Open win in 2000.
It was his second runner-up finish of the year after his second place at Torrey Pines, to go with top-10 finishes at Riviera and the PGA Championship.
"The goal today was to get to double digits (under par) and get something positive, outside of yesterday, get something positive going into the (U.S.) Open". "I listen too much to other people, and also a bit of belief".
The German's last victory came at the 2014 US Open and he will be taking nothing for granted today - in 2015 he led the Italian Open by 10 shots with just 13 holes to play and lost.
Conor McGregor reacts to Andy Ruiz Jr dethroning Anthony Joshua
Ruiz, sent to the canvas once himself, knocked Joshua down twice in the third round and twice more in the seventh. Ruiz, brought in on late notice, took the fight with Joshua with a rematch clause inserted should he win.
Lee6 was ahead by three after a birdie on the par-5 15th, but took bogeys on the 16th and 18th to give Boutier a chance.
Each week we take a look at four players on each of the major tours in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings, which will be updated on Monday, June 3, 2019. On the fifth, he sent his drive well to the right into the rough. He hit a huge drive at the opening hole and struck his approach to 10 feet to set up an opening birdie, which set the tone. He birdied the par five 11th but further drops followed at the 12th and 14th and Patrick Cantlay assumed command when he did this at the 14th, at nearly exactly the same time as Kaymer missed his eight-footer for par at 13. Cantlay closed his front nine with three straight birdies to make the turn in five-under 31. But on the 10th, his fairway bunker shot didn't get out and came back in his footprint, leading to a double-bogey.
Cantlay says it changed him as a person, but he keeps that separate from his golf.
The top five remains the same as last week with Matt Kuchar still on top despite a rare missed cut at the Memorial Tournament.
