DUBLIN - Matt Kuchar capped a four-under par 68 with a birdie at the final hole on Sunday to win the US PGA Tour’s $6.2m Memorial tournament by two strokes. Kuchar led by as many as four strokes on the back nine and his 12-under total of 276 gave him a two-shot triumph over American Kevin Chappell. Chappell closed with a bogey-free round in the Jack Nicklaus-hosted event, keeping the pressure on Kuchar with four birdies in his last six holes in a four-under 68 for 278. Kyle Stanley was third after a 71 for 281. “This stuff never gets old,” said Kuchar, whose young sons Cameron and Carson were at the 18th to help him celebrate. “To shake Mr. Nicklaus’s hand, to win the tournament, that’s pretty great. But to have my family run onto the green, this is as special as it gets.”–AFP
