In search of his first PGA Tour win, Levin failed to convert a 54-hole lead for the second time in his PGA career. He previously held a six-shot advantage at the Waste Management Phoenix Open before shooting a 75 in the final round and finished third.

Levin finished in the top 10 at the Memorial for the first time in his third start. He previously finished in a tie for 33rd in 2010 and missed the cut in 2011.

The tie for 4th is Levin’s third of the 2012 season and first since he tied for 9th at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in February.

Levin needed just 100 putts at the Memorial Tournament, joining Ernie Els (2004), John Mallinger (2008) and Joe Ogilvie (2008).
