Rose surges to 3-shot lead at Memorial; Woods with an 85

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) Justin Rose made an early surge Saturday at the Memorial, just like so many other players. He's the only one who kept going on his way to a 6-under 66 that gave him a three-shot lead.

Rose missed only one green on the back nine as he started to pull away.

He was at 15-under 201. Francesco Molinari (69) and David Lingmerth (72) were tied for second. Jim Furyk had a 70 and was four shots back going into the final round.

Tiger Woods finished his round when Rose was about to tee off, and it had everyone talking. Woods had two double bogeys and ended with a quadruple bogey for an 85 - the worst score in his 20 years as a pro.
