Jordan Spieth had a 70 and was a shot behind, while Tiger Woods is seven shots back after a double bogey on the par-5 15th. "It was fun. I hit the ball so crisp and so solid and made some nice putts on the front nine and had things rolling for a little bit. Look, I'd nearly take that same round tomorrow with (my) below-average putting and see how my chances tack up, but I'm going to need a really great round tomorrow". "But hopefully I go out and play a positive round of golf tomorrow, and get something out of my round like I haven't done the first three days".
Adam Scott is back as a force in world golf, unequivocally.
It was a dramatic finale at Jack's place on a day that looked to be in Kaymer's control, but Cantlay's aggressive play over the back nine and an equally wayward spell from the overnight leader made for a tense tussle before Cantlay pulled away over the closing stretch. Matsuyama unleashed eight birdies during his round, including a string of four in five holes on the front.
Woods hit 12 of 14 fairways and 14 of 18 greens Sunday, needing just 26 putts. He played a great round of golf.
Kaymer had a wrist injury that set him back 18 months ago, but he said his recent poor form had been caused more by his state of mind than due to any physical ailments.
"He didn't miss a shot, " said Keith Mitchell, who played with Woods and was doing so for the first time.More news: China Launches Investigation Into FedEx, Xinhua Reports

Cantlay finished at 19-under 269 and won only for the second time on the PGA TOUR career. A further two birdies followed at five and seven and Kaymer's price hit a low of [1.42]. Cantlay was low amateur in the 2011 U.S. Open, and the next week shot a 60 at the Travelers Championship. "He fell apart here previous year in-the-mix, as he has done on several occasions elsewhere, and while I know he's a great player, he's never ever a decent price and he's an bad one this week".
Cantlay, a former No. 1 amateur in the world whose career was slowed by a back injury so severe he thought he might not return, had a chance to win the Memorial previous year when he took a two-shot lead into the back nine and then failed to make another birdie, missing a playoff by one shot. He entered the clubhouse in a tie for 10th place.
I've been a fan of Cantlay's for a while now, and while this is "just" his second win, there's likely plenty more where that came from.
Justin Rose, in his first outing since announcing his split with long time bagman Mark "Fooch" Fulcher, finished in 13th. I don't think we've really even scratched the surface of what he'll do one day on the PGA TOUR.
Kaymer, who started the day with a two-stroke lead in search of his first win since his 2014 US Open victory, was two strokes back on 15-under 273.
A 14 footer read perfectly well helped Shubhankar move to 4-under for the round as he went past the 12th hole. "I just wasn't able to make anything happen today". The Italian only came through the Qualifying School in November and now has two victories in just 20 events after his triumph at thel Kenya Open in March.
