Matt Kuchar carded a 4 under 68 to win Jack Nicklaus’s Memorial Golf Tournament yesterday in Dublin Ohio. Kucher held on making a must have 4 footer for par on 17th to keep his 2 shot lead over Kevin Chappell. Kucher then need to two putt to victory on 18. He finished his week off with a fist pump and a birdie for 68 on Sunday.
Kuchar played at a major championship level golf this past weekend beating a field with the top 2 players in the world Tiger Woods, and Rory McIlroy. Matt Kuchar looks poised to win his first major of his career. He has already won twice on the PGA Tour, is in 2nd in the Fed Ex Cup points, and will go to a career best #4 in the world
”This is such an amazing feeling. This never gets old,” said Kuchar, who won for the sixth time in his career. ”To have Jack Nicklaus congratulate me is a real treat. This is as special as it gets.”
Congratulations to Matt Kuchar and good luck in two weeks at the US Open at Merion.
