Memorial Tournament 2012: Final Leaderboard for Tiger Woods and Top Golfers
For the second time in the last four Memorials, Tiger Woods came back from four strokes on the final day to capture the victory.
Woods shot a five-under 67 on Sunday to end the tournament at nine-under, which was two shots better than Rory Sabbatini and Andres Romero. It was also tied for the low round of the day.
This was Tiger's second win on the year, the fifth of his career at the Memorial, and the 73rd PGA victory of his career. That win total ties him with Jack Nicklaus for second all time. Sam Snead holds the record with 82 career wins.
Tiger gave this tournament an instant classic moment when he holed in a chip on the par 3 16. He had very little green to work with and a downslope to boot. He pulled off a flop shot, and the ball rolled into the cup at the absolute perfect pace.
The birdie tied with Sabbatini atop the leaderboard at eight-under. Sabbatini, who was in the group behind Woods, bogeyed 16 and Tiger moved into first and didn't look back.
Tiger was paired with Rickie Fowler for Sunday, making one of the most memorable final day pairings of the season. Fowler did not respond well to this challenge. He had a disastrous round and fired a 12-over 84.
This was a shocking collapse by Fowler, who had been playing as well as any golfer on Tour.
Spencer Levin began the day with a one-shot lead, and he had a nice front nine firing a one-under 35, but he fell apart on the back, where he shot a plus-four 40. He finished at five-under for the tournament and tied for fourth.
This was a huge win for Woods. While it is his second of the season, the intensity and competitive drive he displayed on the chip-in on 16 is the biggest statement he has made that he is back.
