Hartsock: Sunday at The Memorial should be fun

Just when it looked like Jason Dufner was going to run away with the Memorial Tournament up at Muirfield Village this week, there now should be plenty of drama in Sunday’s final round.

Dufner started the day with a five-shot lead after setting a 36-hole record of -14 with shooting back-to-back 65’s on Thursday and Friday.

That lead dwindled quickly on Saturday as Dufner bogeyed four straight holes on the front nine, then double-bogeyed the 11th hole to fall off the top of the leaderboard for the first time all week. He finished the third round with a 5-over par 77 and stands four shots back with 18 holes to play.

Dufner could only watch as his playing partner bolted past him to the top of the leaderboard on Saturday. Daniel Summerhays shots a four-under par 68 to take a three shot lead into the final round.

A non-winner in seven years on the PGA Tour, Summerhays would fit nicely into recent history at The Memorial Tournament. William McGirt was a first-time winner on tour a year ago, and David Lingmerth won his first and only tournament at Muirfield Village in 2015.

Summerhays will have to hold off a couple of veterans who know how to win. 2013 Memorial champion Matt Kuchar is alone in second place, three shots back after a 67 on Saturday.

Bubba Watson vaulted back into contention with a third-round 68 that including a 6-under 30 on the back nine
