Scheffler widens his lead at the Memorial Tournament

American golfer Scottie Scheffler made history by winning his second Masters title in April. In the third round of the Memorial Tournament, Scheffler held a commanding lead at 10 under par. He was followed closely by Sepp Straka from Austria and Colin Morikawa and Adam Hadwin from the United States, all of whom were also at 6 under par.

Other notable players in the tournament included Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland, Tommy Fleetwood from England, and Shane Lowry from Ireland. Despite a mid-round setback of a triple-bogey on the ninth hole, Scheffler was able to maintain his focus and finish the round with a one-under-par 71. He attributed his resilience to his ability to refocus after the disappointing ninth hole.

As he headed into the final round, Scheffler was four shots ahead of his closest competitors. The Memorial Tournament, held at Muirfield Village in Ohio, is a prestigious event on the PGA Tour with a total purse of $20 million. The tournament serves as a precursor to the upcoming US Open at Pinehurst. As the world number one, Scheffler is looking to add another title to his impressive resume as he aims to further solidify his position at the top of the golf world.
