Kuchar endures up-and-down day for share of lead at Memorial

DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) Matt Kuchar finished the third round of the Memorial in a share of the lead, just how he started Saturday.

But it was a wet and wild ride for Kuchar and everyone else at Muirfield Village.

Kuchar fell off the pace quickly with two bogeys only to surge back into the lead with four birdies and two par saves in a six-hole stretch. A bogey on the final hole gave him a 2-under 70 and a share of the lead with William McGirt (64) and Gary Woodland (69).

Twenty players were separated by four shots going into the final round.

Jason Day was right there until a double bogey on the final hole for a 68. He still was only three shots behind. Rory McIlroy was five back.
