Although a handful of big names failed to reach the weekend, Rory McIlroy is not only still here, but very much in contention at 5-under par. He’s hoping to earn Jack Nicklaus’ handshake at the end of the tournament.
Some of those who finished on the wrong side of the Memorial Tournament cut line offered a rather interesting perspective on what that means. It’s worth considering Bryson DeChambeau’s and William McGirt’s mature views on what role the sport plays in their lives before then celebrating those golfers who are on the course today.

2:40 p.m. – Corey Conners three-putts from 3 feet
There have been more than a few shots Corey Conners wishes he could have back. Top of that list has to be taking three shots to get in the hole from 3 feet.
On the par-4 1st, Conners hit his third shot from the fairway to a tidy 3 feet from the hole to be in good position to make par. However, his first putt didn’t fall, and he left himself 5 feet for a bogey, which he also missed.
Conners ended up making five birdies on the front nine and was at 4-under for the tournament heading to the back nine. He double-bogeyed Nos. 10 and 11 to fall to even-par and 2-over par today.
2:27 p.m. – Denny McCarthy reclaims the lead on No. 4
Denny McCarthy didn’t need to show off his excellent putting stroke on the 209-yard, par-3 4th to move to 9-under and into sole possession of first place. McCarthy hit his tee shot within 4 feet and tapped in for birdie.
McCarthy’s was the 14th birdie on No. 4 today, which is better than either of the first two rounds of the tournament.
2:22 p.m. – Jhonattan Vegas joins the leaders
After back-to-back rounds of 69, Jhonattan Vegas is already 2-under through five holes and tied with two others in first.

There are four players, including Daniel Berger who is 5-under today, just one shot back of the leaders.
2:11 p.m. – Billy Horschel moves to 8-under
After a terrific 4-under, 68 on Day 2, Billy Horschel has picked up where he left off and is now in a tie for the lead.

12:25 p.m. – Viktor Hovland fading fast
The world’s seventh-ranked golfer went from 2-under par to 6-over par in a matter of seven holes.
After starting his round with two birdies in the first three holes, Hovland has made three double-bogeys in his past five holes. On No. 6, Hovland hit his drive into the fairway bunker, then hit his approach into the water.

10:29 a.m. – Check out scenes from the second round of the 2022 Memorial Tournament
The Memorial Tournament leaders take the course this afternoon, which makes this morning a great time to check out some of the beautiful images from round two.
9:33 a.m. – Jason Day eagles on hole No. 3
It’s early in the day obviously, but it’s going to be tough to top Jason Day’s eagle on the par-4 third hole as a highlight for this round of the Memorial Tournament.
And as if that wasn’t impressive enough, he followed it up by holing out from in the rough, almost 83 feet away from the cup at the par-3 fourth hole.
8:25 a.m. – Brandt Snedeker continues his love/hate relationship with Muirfield.
For the past eight years the hate won out.
Brandt Snedeker (2-over par) has just teed off his third round in the first Memorial Tournament he’s played in since 2013. He loved the course but hated how he struggled on it, missing five cuts with a withdrawal in six previous visits. So he stayed away, returning this year on a sponsor’s exemption.
“I’ve just never had good any success here,” the 41-year-old said. “It’s funny, some golf courses you hate them and play great at them, some courses you love and don’t play good. I love Riviera (Los Angeles) and here, but play bad at both. Torrey Pines, I should never play well there, but I do. You learn after a while awhile to make your schedule around places you play well, whether you like them or not.”
Muirfield Village has undergone several makeovers in the almost decade Snedeker bypassed it, but after seeing it again, he did not think any changes were too drastic.
“Not as dramatic as I thought they’d be, coming back,” he said. “The core of the golf course is the same; a few of the holes are a little better since the last time I played them, and some are super tough, nowhere to leave it. So you just have to play some good golf.”
8:18 a.m. – Smart money on Aussie Cam Smith
The morning leaderboard is a bit of of a “who’s he?” more than a who’s who, but that’s mostly because the tour is shifting younger, and many casual fans have not caught up to anyone not named Tiger, Phil, Brooks and Bryson. But Cam Smith is legit, ranked No. 3 in the world and has the mullet going for him. Anyone can still win this thing – way too early to call it – but the 36-hole leader is sitting pretty at the moment.
7:58 a.m. – Round three is underway
Believe it or not, this is honestly a weather forecast for Dublin, Ohio, on a Memorial Tournament Saturday: It will be sunny, with a high near 79 and a very light (3-6 mph) northeast wind.

Who won the Memorial Tournament last year?
Defending champion: Patrick Cantlay
Last year: Cantlay defeated Collin Morikawa on the first hole of a sudden death playoff to win his second Memorial (the first coming in 2019), but it goes down as one of the the oddest “what-if?” outcomes in PGA Tour history.
On Saturday, Jon Rahm shot a superb 7-under-par 64 to take a six-shot cushion into what he thought would be his Sunday victory lap round, but within moments of finishing his third round Tour officials approached the Spaniard off the back of the 18th green with news he had tested positive for COVID-19 and would need to withdraw.
