Levin loses lead in final round at Memorial when he struggles on back nine




Spencer Levin was one round from winning his first PGA Tour event after leading Saturday’s third round.

He lead Rory Sabbatini by 1 shot, Rickie Fowler by three strokes and Tiger Woods by four shots in a tight top four.

Levin had played winning golf all tournament with a 67-72-69-75 for a 283, 5-under-par and a tie for 4th after running into problems on the back nine in Sunday’s final round.

The 54-hole leader entering the final round, Levin shot a 75 in the final round to finish in a tie for 4th with Daniel Summerhays.

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).

Fowler falls out of contention with 84 in final round of Memorial

Usually if a golfer has a bad round of golf, he will not spend time with the media or the gallery of fans.

But fan-favorite Rickie Fowler showed his professionalism by spending time with the media and spent 30 minutes signing autographs for the fans. Nobody would’ve blamed the former Oklahoma State product if he wanted to go to the clubhouse and hide out after a disappointing Sunday at the Memorial.

Fowler was 3rd after Saturday’s third round, three shots from the lead held by Spencer Levin.

But on Sunday, he fell faster than Haley’s Comet in the final round, shooting a whopping 12-over-par 84 to drop from third place at 5-under-par to a tie for 52nd place with three other golfers at 7-over par. That 84 matched the fourth-highest final round in the 37 years of the Memorial’s history. The highest was back in 1981 by Gary Hallberg with an 88.

His troubles started early in the round at number-2 where he pulled a drive and on number-3 where he missed a three-putt from 5 1/2 feet missed.

The collapse would indicate fatigue, but Fowler said “no”.

His collapse was really stunning considering that he has been one of the hottest and most consistent PGA Tour golfers the past two months, winning once and finishing in the top ten in four tournaments.

The 84 is Fowler’s highest score on the PGA Tour. His previous high score was a 79 in the final round of the Northern Trust Open earlier this season.

After 67 PGA Tour starts, colorful Fowler finally a winner

When 23-year-old Rickie Fowler came on the PGA Tour three years ago out of Oklahoma State, he was anointed as the next American golfing star. He had a lot of flashiness by wearing different color outfits especially all-orange on Sundays.

He came close to winning several times but to no avail.

66 golf tournaments had passed and no wins.

But 67 became the magic number for the former Cowboys golf star.

On Sunday, Fowler picked up the elusive PGA Tour win by defeating Rory McIlroy, another of those young golfing stars.

Fowler sank a clutch shot in a sudden-death playoff at Quail Hollow, to win the Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina.

His clutch putt, from 4-feet to birdie the 18th hole to beat McIlroy and D.A. Points. He shot a 3-under-par 69.
