Round 4 Recap — Sunday

Patrick Cantlay defeats Collin Morikawa in a playoff to win Memorial Tournament

Following Jon Rahm’s positive COVID-19 test on Saturday forced the leader by six strokes to withdraw, Cantlay ($9,500; 115 DKFP) and Morikawa ($10,400; 111 DKFP) were left tied for the lead. After each had the lead at different points on Sunday, they each finished one-under and went into a playoff with Morikawa scrambling and save par while Cantlay narrowly missed a shot that would have won the tournament. On the first playoff hole, both players missed the green, but Cantlay saved par while Morikawa had his par-saving putt slide just past the hole. Cantlay has now won this event twice in his career, this year and in 2019, and he now has two PGA TOUR wins this season, adding this win to the Zozo Championship. — Zach Thompson

Jimmy Walker turns back the clock to post top-10 finish at Muirfield Village

The best performance of Sunday’s final round in the Memorial Tournament came from an unlikely place, as Walker ($6,400; 94.0 DKFP) fired a seven-under to move from T38 all the way up to T6. He made five birdies on the front nine and two more coming home while playing a bogey-free round to become one of the best fantasy plays of the tournament. After winning six times on the PGA TOUR between 2014 and 2016, Walker has had a long battle with Lyme disease. This is his first top-10 finish since 2018. Branden Grace ($6,800; 89.0 DKFP) was also a great value play, finishing fourth, while Max Homa ($7,500; 80.0 DKFP), Si Woo Kim ($7,300; 78.5 DKFP) and Aaron Wise ($7,000; 79.5 DKFP) also finished in the top 10 to offer great returns on investment. — Zach Thompson


Round 3 Recap — Saturday

Collin Morikawa, Patrick Cantlay share the lead at the Memorial after three rounds

Morikawa ($10,400; 105 DKFP) really turned it on in the third round, shooting a six-under 66 to grab a share of the lead at the Memorial Tournament heading into Sunday’s final round. He birdied eight holes, including three straight to close his front nine, bogeying just twice to put himself in contention. Cantlay ($9,500; 99 DKFP) didn’t need to do as much to get the lead, shooting four under with five birdies and a bogey. Both figured they might be out of contention, but Jon Rahm ($11,100; 93 DKFP) was forced to withdraw after a positive COVID-19 test, opening the door for a new winner at Muirfield Village. — Kenny Ducey

Jon Rahm withdraws from Memorial Tournament after testing positive for COVID-19

Rahm ($11,100; 93 DKFP) was forced to withdraw from the Memorial Tournament on Saturday due to a positive COVID test, the PGA Tour announced on Saturday. The leader by a considerable margin at -18, Rahm was already in the tour’s health and safety protocols after coming into contact with a positive test this week, and the test he took after the conclusion of his second round returned positive as his third round was wrapping up. Because of this, he had to pack it up for the week. He had just birdied nine holes on Saturday against one bogey, earning the birdie streak bonus in the process. Patrick Cantlay ($9,500; 99 DKFP) and Collin Morikawa ($10,400; 105 DKFP) are your new leaders at -12 entering Sunday, three shots clear of the field. — Kenny Ducey


Round 2 Recap — Friday

Jon Rahm looking to go back-to-back at The Memorial Tournament

Rahm ($11,100) won The Memorial Tournament in 2020, and he’s in a great position to go back-to-back in 2021. The second round was suspended due to darkness, but Rahm is currently tied atop the leaderboard with Patrick Cantlay ($9,500) at eight-under-par. Cantlay has already finished his round — he shot a five-under-par 67 on Friday — but Rahm still has five holes left to play. That gives him a chance to potentially extend his lead before the start of the third round. Max Homa ($7,500), Rickie Fowler ($8,000) and Xander Schauffele ($9,700) are currently tied for fourth at four-under-par, but they still have holes to play, as well. Rahm is currently listed as the betting favorite at +200 on DraftKings Sportsbook. — Matt LaMarca

Keegan Bradley in jeopardy of missing cut at The Memorial Tournament

The second round of The Memorial Tournament was suspended due to darkness, so there are still a handful of golfers who will have to finish up on Saturday. One of those players is Bradley ($8,000). He’s currently sitting at four-over-par for the tournament, which puts him in jeopardy of being unavailable for the third round. That said, he did battle back on Friday — he’s two-under-par for the day — and he still has seven holes left in the second round. The current cut line is projected for two-over-par, so Bradley will likely need to pick up another two strokes over those remaining holes. He was owned in approximately 21% of DraftKings lineups, and those owners would love to see him stick around for the weekend. — Matt LaMarca


Round 1 Recap — Thursday

Collin Morikawa leads those able to complete first round at Memorial Tournament

Morikawa ($10,400; 58.5 DKFP) is the leader at the Memorial Tournament following the suspension of play on Thursday. The American is into the clubhouse with a score of -6 after shooting a 66 at Muirfield Village during his opening round. With play suspended for the day, he’s not the official first-round leader. Morikawa began his day with three birdies in the first six holes, going off of the 10th, before a bogey on 18 and four birdies in the next five holes. He picked up the birdie streak bonus, but did miss the bogey-free bonus. Adam Long ($6,500; 43 DKFP) is all alone in second at -5, and there’s a group tied for third at -4. Bryson DeChambeau ($10,900; 12.5 DKFP) started two under through three and could catch Morikawa on Thursday. — Kenny Ducey

Round 1 of the Memorial Tournament suspended

Due to inclement weather, the first round of the Memorial Tournament has been suspended. Play will resume at 7:30 am on Friday. Sixty golfers were unable to finish their first round of play, with some of the notables being Rory McIlroy ($10,600), Viktor Hovland ($9,900), Charley Hoffman ($8,300), Patrick Cantlay ($9,500), Bryson DeChambeau ($10,900) and Jordan Spieth ($11,300). — Stan Son
