DUBLIN, Ohio – Matt Kuchar has been on a roll lately, and he didn’t slow down Thursday at one of his favorite golf courses.
The 2013 Memorial champion fired a bogey-free 66 to finish in a five-way tie for third and just two shots behind leader Dustin Johnson.
“This tournament has to be my best track record of all the tournaments I play through the years,” Kuchar said. “Seem to come through with nice finishes, seem to put together a lot of good rounds. Today was another one.”
In 11 starts at the Memorial, Kuchar has made nine cuts and finished in the top 10 five times.
He recorded top-3 finishes at The Players and Byron Nelson, and is coming off a T-6 at Colonial.
“Just got things going really well,” he said. “I feel awfully comfortable with all facets of the game.”
