PGA Tour — Lingmerth outlasts Rose in playoff

Sweden's David Lingmerth outlasted Justin Rose in a three-hole playoff to win his maiden PGA Tour title at the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide.

The 27 year old didn't make worse that par over his last 11 holes, closed with a 69 to finish in 15 under par at Muirfield Village.

He was matched by overnight leader Justin Rose, who overcame a socket from a bunker on the 18th hole in regulation before hitting a 55-yard pitch out of deep rough to three feet to save par for an even-par 72 to force the playoff.

On the 18th in the playoff, Rose holed a 20-footer for par but Lingmerth calmly sank a 10-foot putt to stay alive and got ip and down from a bunker on the 18th at the second extra hole to keep things going.

It all ended on the 10th hole where Rose drove into deep rough, hit an attempted cut with a fairway metal into the gallery, chipped 18 feet by the hole and missed his par putt as Lingmerth two-putted from 45 feet for the win.

"I can't believe it," the 27-year-old Swede told TV reporter Peter Kostis. "I'm so happy right now I don't know where to go."

As AP's Dough Ferguson wrote:

"He'll be going to the Masters next year for the first time -- but not the U.S. Open in two weeks. Lingmerth moves to No. 71 in the world and still has to qualify Monday. It was the longest playoff in 40 years of the Memorial, and it could have ended much earlier -- or been avoided -- if not for so many clutch moments."

Tiger Woods played as a single in the first match out and shot a 74 to finish 71st and last on 14 over par, eight shots worse that the players in second last.
