Jason Dufner, David Lingmerth share Memorial lead


Daniel Summerhays, 33, has swung from being completely under the radar to just mostly under the radar. But the Auburn alum stumbled early on Saturday, dropping four shots on his first five holes. Johnson's six-over par 78 didn't include a single birdie.

All because the guy next to him Saturday, Jason Dufner, lost his way.

But Summerhays, in search of a first US PGA Tour title, was tied for the lead after five holes thanks to four quick bogeys for Dufner and his own birdie at the fifth. More than his solid round was the collapse by Dufner. One day after he set the 36-hole scoring record, Dufner shot 77 and was four shots behind.

He also has some good career mojo in OH, having won the Web.com Tour's 2007 Nationwide Children's Hospital Invitational at the Scarlett Course at OSU Golf Club.

Included in his recovery was a birdie at 18, where he holed out from the bunker. He hit two balls in the water on the back nine. Dufner had a pair of three-putts, and he twice missed birdie putts from 6 feet.

"Hopefully I can play well tomorrow; that will give me a good boost going into the off week, so I can train and practice a little harder and get some rest before heading to the US Open", said Day.

Muirfield Village specialist Matt Kuchar and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson both roared into contention on Moving Day, but Summerhays will be the man to beat on Sunday after he fired a composed 68 to hit the front on 13 under par.

Arsene Wenger agrees two-year contract extension with Arsenal
"I'm proud having done this - winning the championship without losing and winning seven FA Cups ", Wenger said. I don't think I could have done much more this season, it is the coach's decision and you have to respect that.

David Lingmerth, who picked up his only PGA Tour victory two years ago at the Memorial, made bogey on the 18th hole and still shot a 7-under 65.

Open champion and Barseback member Henrik Stenson birdied two of his last five holes to card a level-par 73 which was matched by defending champion Matt Fitzpatrick, while BMW PGA Championship victor Alex Noren struggled to a 75.

Zach Johnson dug deep to make the cut on the number with four birdies on his last five holes.

Justin Thomas, victor of the first two events of the year in Hawaii, joined Watson on nine under after carding a four-birdie 69, while Dufner also shares third place despite a day to forget for the former PGA champion.

"A lot of times I feel you get out there and you get close to the lead or whatever, you kind of turn in, you're kind of trying to hold on to whatever you can get at the moment".

Perth native Greg Chalmers shot a 68 to take a one-under total, while Cameron Smith (71) and Rod Pampling (73) finished at one-over. Mickelson has not missed the U.S. Open since his first full season as a pro in 1993.
