Martin Laird tied the course record at the Texas Open in San Antonio with a 9-under-par 63 to hold off Rory McIlroy and earn his first PGA Tour win in  more than two years.

The world’s #2 golfer, McIlroy, began the day at 6 under before shooting a 66 to finish two shots back and finish second, his best finish of 2013.

Billy Horschel, Jim Furyk and Charley Hoffman all tied for third.

Friday’s second round of the Memorial Tournament had just about everything; driving rain, a two-hour rain delay, gusty and swirling winds and a 55-degree temperature.


But those conditions, have to be ignored when you play on the PGA Tour.

Rory Sabbatini, Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk all had solid days and are the leaders of Jack Nicklaus’ tournament heading into the third round on Saturday.

Sabbatini is the leader, Woods is tied for second and Furyk is tied for third.

Sabbatini shot his second straight 69 for a 6-under 138 and a one-stroke lead over Woods.

Woods had a 5-under 139 on Friday. Four of Woods’ five birdies came on putts of 6 feet or less.

Furyk carded a 68 and came in at 4-under 140.

Twenty-three golfers broke par on Friday, but only seven broke a 70.

Irishman Rory McIlroy kept making the U.S. Open course look easy as he pushed his lead out to eight strokes with one last round to play.

In the third round of play, McIlroy shot a 3-under-par 68 to finish at 14-under 199, which breaks Jim Furyk’s record for the best 54-hole score by one shot.

The 22-year-old from Northern Ireland leads Y.E. Yang (70) by eight strokes and Lee Westwood (65), Jason Day (65) and Robert Garrigus (68) by nine.

The eight-shot advantage is two short of the lead Tiger Woods was able to take into Sunday at Pebble Beach in 2000, when he dominated the field by an unbelievable 15 shots.

MEMORIAL TOURNAMENT Final Round: Kuchar, Jobe finish strong week with 2nd place tie

Matt Kuchar

Matt Kuchar was having a nice final round at the Memorial Tournament on Sunday, 7 under par through 14 holes, and had just hit a perfectly placed tee shot on the par-5 15th when the bad weather horn sounded.

After a 2 hour, 34 minute wait, Kuchar had a difficult time getting back into his rhythm.

Kuchar ended up with three more pars and settled for a tie for second place with playing partner Brandt Jobe, one shot behind Steve Stricker.

2011 was the best finish in seven Memorials, and Kuchar is on a roll with four straight top-10 finishes.

He shot a 69 to start the tournament on Thursday and then garnered a 71, 68 and 65.

Kuchar has four runner-up finishes in 246 career starts on TOUR.

Kuchar moves to #4 in the FedExCup standings. The two-time All-American from Georgia Tech led the FedExCup standings during the first three weeks of the PGA Tour Playoffs for the FedExCup in 2010. It was the only time he led the FedExCup standings and finished second to winner Jim Furyk.

Brandt Jobe gets his first top-3 finish since the 2005 season. He has only three top-10 since 2006, all coming in the current season. He now has 20 career top 10′s on TOUR. Jobe has four-runner-up finishes in 283 starts on TOUR without a win.

Brandt Jobe jokes with media

This remarkable from Jobe, who two years ago was considering retirement. Last year, he returned to the Nationwide Tour at the age of 44.

In November of 2006, Jobe thought his golf career had ended while pushing a metal broom across his garage door. The broom had shattered in his hands and pieces of medal had sliced through his fingers.

Jobe placed pieces of his left thumb and index fingers in a plastic bag and took them to a plastic surgeon who reattached the parts of his nerve-damaged fingers.

The fact that he has come back his a big step forward.

Jobe took another big step in the final round of the Memorial Tournament to tie for second place, one shot behind the winner Steve Stricker, for his best tournament since finishing second in the 2005 International.

Jobe’s runner-up finish pushed him over the $1 million mark for just the second time in his 21-year career. He has three to-10′s in 17 events this season.
