DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) - Matt Kuchar rolled in one last birdie to win the Memorial by two shots and join Tiger Woods as the only multiple winners on the PGA Tour this year.
Kuchar was challenged briefly at the turn by Kyle Stanley, and then late Sunday when Kevin Chappell birdied three of his last four holes. Kuchar only needed to two-putt from 20 feet for the win, and he made the putt for a 4-under 68.
Kuchar, who goes to No. 4 in the world, had never won twice in one season. He captured the Match Play Championship in February. Better yet was getting a handshake from tournament host Jack Nicklaus behind the 18th green.
Oak Ridge native Scott Stallings finished with a strong final round of -5 to finish at -6 for the tournament and a tie for 4th.
Tiger Woods closed with a 72 and finished 20 shots behind, his largest deficit in a full-field event.
