2019: PATRICK CANTLAY

Patrick Cantlay shot a bogey-free 64 in the final round, which was the lowest round by a winner in Memorial Tournament history. He had to overcome a four-stroke deficit at the start of the day to finish at 19-under 269, which was one of the tournament records set by Tom Lehman over 25 years ago.

2018: BRYSON DECHAMBEAU

Bryson DeChambeau’s 2018 Memorial Tournament title was his second PGA Tour win in as many years. He overcame a bogey on the 72nd hole to fall into a playoff, but he outplayed Kyle Stanley and Byeong Hun down the stretch in sudden death to come away with the victory.

2017: JASON DUFNER

Jason Dufner nailed a 32-foot par putt on the final hole that led to victory at the Memorial Tournament in 2017. He lost a five-shot lead in the third round, and he started the final round facing a four-shot deficit. However, he played his best golf on the back nine, and remained in sync despite two rain delays, to finish with a 4-under 68 and won by three shots. Dufner joined Jack Nicklaus as the only Ohio-born winners of the tournament.

2016: WILLIAM MCGIRT

William McGirt nailed a bunker shot on the 18th hole that kept him in the playoff, and then a flop shot from behind the 18th green, which led to a 6-foot putt and his first PGA Tour victory. He played the final 22 holes at Muirfield Village without a bogey. His final par in regulation was the most important of the tournament — a two-putt from 65 feet for a 1-under 71 that allowed him to join Jon Curran (70) in a playoff at 15-under 273.

2015: DAVID LINGMERTH

David Lingmerth ended a three-hole playoff against Justin Rose — the longest in 40 years at Muirfield Village — with a par putt from just inside 5 feet to win the Memorial Tournament back in 2015. His first PGA Tour win came on the birthday of his father, Thomas, and his parents’ anniversary.
