Memorial Tournament: Jason Dufner, David Lingmerth lead; Jordan Spieth stays hot

Lingmerth Dufner lead as Spieth starts well

Summerhays has finished in the top 100 in the FedExCup for each of the past five seasons, and previous year finished T8 at the U.S. Open and third at the PGA Championship. Johnson's six-over par 78 didn't include a single birdie. Daniel Summerhays was in second.

The 33-year-old from Utah, who finished third in last year's PGA Championship, trailed midway leader Jason Dufner by five shots overnight but five birdies - and a bogey on the 13th - saw him move into the outright lead on 13 under par ahead of 2013 victor Matt Kuchar.

At two over, Day (70) narrowly made the cut and says a pair of low scores in his final two rounds before the US Open will be a confidence booster. He three-putted from 4 feet on the sixth hole and made double bogey.

"He called me and said, 'Bro, I played good, it's clicking, '" said Boyd Summerhays, Daniel's older brother by four years and also his coach. Dufner is tied for third with Bubba Watson (third-round 68) and Justin Thomas (69). I felt good with the putter today and that really helps a lot out here.

"Last summer was a big deal for me", he said. That gave him 10 under and put him in the final group with Summerhays as he tries to end three years and 82 starts without a win.

Former World No 1 Jordan Spieth had three birdies and three bogeys in an even-par 72 that left him tied for fourth on 6-under 138. 11-15. Bogeys at 16 and 17 dropped him to a 7-under 65, but that was the round of the day by two shots.

"The tournament is not over", Dufner said. The two-time Masters champion fired a four-under 68, highlighted by a six-under 30 on his back nine.

NOTES: Four players on the PGA Tour have held at least a five-shot lead after 36 holes the past two seasons.

He was 3 over through four holes, answered with four birdies over his next five holes, then traded birdies and bogeys on the back nine until finishing with one last birdie for a round of 70 that featured just six pars.

Nine of the 12 Australians who began the week have qualified for the weekend, Greg Chalmers, Rod Pampling, Cameron Smith, Jason Day, Matthew Griffin and Curtis Luck all the right side of 3-over.

Last week, the superstar said he would join politics if "God wants me to". "I am a pure Tamil now", he told his fans. Known for its galaxy of actor-turned-politicians, Tamil Nadu seems to be getting ready to welcome more star power.

"I made some nice pars and rolled in some putts", the 2013 PGA Championship victor added, although the highlight of his day didn't involve putting.

Muirfield Village member Jason Day (71) is 2 over after 36 holes, hovering around the cut line. "I'd a lot of fairways, a lot of greens and threw in a few birdies and tried not to fall too far behind Duf", he said.

Johnson was the biggest name to miss the cut, joined by rising Spanish talent Jon Rahm, who bowed out early for just the second time since turning pro a year ago.

Rickie Fowler and Jamie Lovemark are 8-under and Spieth, Kevin Kisner and Kevin Streelman are 7-under.
