Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Jon Rahm wins the Memorial Tournament

He came into the final round of the Memorial Tournament with a four-stroke lead and, with an impressive performance on the front nine, Rahm ($9,300; 109.0 DKFP) left little question as to whether or not he would be walking away with the win. It also helped matters that Muirfield Village wreaked havoc on every other non-Rahm golfer all afternoon long; but, if anything, that only made the 25-year-old’s day look even more impressive by comparison. Rahm finished 9-under par after being assessed a two-shot penalty at an event where just nine men wound up under par after 72 holes. Rahm posted a mere seven holes of bogey-or-worse all week. Additionally, with the win, the Spaniard will take over as world No. 1. — Garion Thorne

Matthew Fitzpatrick finishes in third at the Memorial Tournament

If you want to get an idea of how difficult Muirfield Village was playing on Sunday, consider that only five players finished their round with a score under par. Five. That’s it. Of those select few, it was Fitzpatrick ($8,100; 89.0 DKFP) who emerged with the lowest showing, shooting 4-under for the day and 5-under for the tournament; which gave the 25-year-old a third-place finish. Heck, Fitzpatrick didn’t even have a single bogey in his last 17 holes. That’s extremely impressive considering how much the weather played a factor all afternoon long. It’s the Englishman’s best result on the PGA Tour in 2020 and, at just 6.7% owned in the Millionaire Maker, Fitzpatrick turned out to be the perfect variance asset. — Garion Thorne

Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Jon Rahm heads into Sunday with four-stroke lead

Rahm ($9,300; 96 DKFP) wasn’t leading heading into Saturday, but he changed that in a big way. He actually wasn’t even leading heading into the back nine today. On the 13th hole, Rahm went on a birdie streak that greatly improved his odds to win. Rahm made four birdies in a row, moving his score to 12-under par for the tournament. Going into Sunday, Rahm is a prohibitive -400 favorite on the DK Sportsbook to win the Memorial. — Greg Ehrenberg

Tony Finau struggles down the stretch on Saturday

Finau ($8,300; 86 DKFP) held a multi-stroke lead at one point today and it looked like he was going to run away with the tournament. Unfortunately for him, the last seven holes didn’t go as well as the first 11. After shooting three-under par without a bogey through 11, Finau had a bogey and two double bogeys on the final seven holes. This put him at eight-under par for the tournament and four strokes behind Jon Rahm ($9,300; 96 DKFP). — Greg Ehrenberg

Round 2 Recap — Friday

Bryson DeChambeau melts down on 15, misses cut

DeChambeau ($11,000; 31.5 DraftKings fantasy points) looked like he was cruising to a made cut on Friday at the Memorial, but had one of the most epic disasters of the year on the 15th hole. Bryson made a five-over 10 on the par five. He hit it in the water, out of bounds twice, and two-putted. Despite making six birdies and five bogeys elsewhere, and shooting a 73 on Thursday, DeChambeau missed the cut. He was 15.72% owned in the DraftKings Millionaire Maker contest as the highest-priced golfer of the tournament. — Anthony Amico

Jon Rahm moves into third place Friday at the Memorial

Rahm ($9,300; 60.5 DraftKings fantasy points) shot a 69 on Thursday and put on an even better performance on Friday at the Memorial. He shot a five-under 67, making six birdies and one bogey. Rahm now sits third on the leaderboard behind co-leaders Tony Finau ($8,300) and Ryan Palmer ($6,400) and has 60.5 DKFP. He crushed tee-to-green, gaining 6.04 strokes there, with 3.44 coming on approach. However, he lost .02 strokes putting. Being in this position without having much luck on the greens bodes well for Rahm’s weekend. — Anthony Amico

Tiger Woods struggles in Round 2 but makes cut

After a successful Round 1 where Woods ($9,000; 26.0 DraftKings fantasy points) shot a 71 (-1), Woods posted a 76 on Friday, putting him at +3 for the tournament. Tiger’s subpar Friday showing dropped him from tied for 18th after Round 1 to tied for 64th after Round 2. It’s possible Woods’ back was causing problems, as he said after the round that his back was a little stiff, which was causing mobility issues.

Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Tony Finau leads the Memorial Tournament after Day 1

With extremely windy conditions, scoring was at a premium Thursday at the Memorial, but Finau ($8,300; 61.5 DKFP) was able to rise above the field, shooting a six-under 66. He made nine birdies and three bogeys and currently sits at 61.5 DKFP. Helping to make up for the conditions was Finau’s putter. He gained a whopping 4.42 strokes on the green, about a full stroke more than the next-closest golfer. Finau was a bit contrarian this week in the Millionaire Maker, coming in at just 11.38% ownership despite a $8,300 price tag. — Anthony Amico

Tiger in the hunt after Day 1 at the Memorial Tournament

Woods ($9,000; 21.0 DKFP) made his first appearance on the PGA TOUR since the restart and has himself squarely in the mix after shooting a one-under 71 on Thursday. After playing in some terribly windy conditions, this leaves him only five shots back of the leader. Woods’ four birdies and three bogeys leave him with 21 DKFP through the first day of the tournament. He was one of the most popular players in this week’s DraftKings Millionaire Maker, posting an ownership rate of 20.88%. Woods excelled on approach on Thursday, gaining 2.95 strokes versus the field. If he gets hot with the putter, something Woods has done plenty in his illustrious career, we could be getting some Tiger roars on Sunday. — Anthony Amico

Dustin Johnson shoots an 80 at the Memorial Tournament

The last time we saw Dustin Johnson ($10,300; 8.0 DKFP), he was winning the Travelers Championship back on the last weekend of June. Still, the 36-year-old really wasn’t subject to that much recency bias, as Johnson came into Thursday with a paltry 9.2% ownership in DraftKings’ Millionaire Maker. Guess what? The public was right to fade him. Johnson had a nightmarish afternoon at the Memorial, shooting an 8-over round of 80. In fact, when it was all said and done, Johnson’s card featured four bogeys, two double bogeys and a triple bogey after finding the water on the 12th hole. Rickie Fowler ($8,800; 3.0 DKFP) was another big name who had a forgettable day, shooting 9-over. — Garion Thorne
