Entering the third round at the Memorial Tournament, Matt Kuchar held a two-stroke lead at at eight under par. Trailing were Kevin Chappell and Kyle Stanley (-6). Masters champion Adam Scott (-4) was four strokes back.
Tiger Woods, the presumptive favorite entering the week, was doomed by a third-round 79. He finished the tournament at eight-over par, firing a final-round 72.
Kuchar, who hit nearly every fairway and green, was simply too solid throughout the final round. Although several players tried to make a run at the Georgia Tech alum, including Kyle Stanley, Kevin Chappell and Scott Stallings, he was simply too good this week to be threatened.
For Kuchar, who hasn't missed a cut this year, it's his second win of 2013 and his sixth victory on tour.
Heading into the U.S. Open, there isn't a hotter, more consistent golfer on tour than Matt Kuchar.
