William, -1 under par 71 today, and Jon, -2 under 70,  both finished the Memorial Tournament with -15 under par totals, and headed back to the 18th for a sudden death play-off. William won at the second extra hole with a par, after they had both cleared the green with their approach shots. William hit the better return and holed his putt to win his maiden PGA Tour title.

Dustin Johnson was in third place at -14 under par, a -1 under 71 today could have been so much better with a decent putting performance.

Four players tied in fourth place at -13 under par, Rory McIlroy, -4 under 68 today, J.B. Holmes, -3 under 69, Gary Woodland, +1 over 73 and Matt Kuchar, lo +1 over 73.

Rory is in good shape for the U.S. Open, he has been watching video’s of the Oakmont Country Club course, he has never played there before;

“I mean, it looks like an awesome course. It looks unbelievably hard, and it will reward very good ballstriking.”

 “It’s going to be tough.”

Jason Day +2 over 74 today finished at -9 under par, while Jordan Spieth was way back T57 at -3 under for the tournament, Jordan had this to say;

“Didn’t have my best stuff this week, but just kind of didn’t make great decisions when I needed to give respect to the golf course, and that’s something I’m certainly going to have to do at Oakmont.”

“So I recognize that. We’re still running on momentum. Got to get some fresh legs and get ready to go.”
