DUBLIN, Ohio - Steve Stricker holed out from the fairway for one of his two eagles Saturday, then wound up with a 3-under 69 on a steamy afternoon at Muirfield Village and finished with a 3-shot lead in the Memorial.
But right when it looked as though Stricker might leave everyone in his wake, he missed a 4-foot birdie putt on the 14th hole that threw his round into reverse. He is 12-under 204, 3 shots clear of Jonathan Byrd.

McDowell shot an 81, including three bogeys, three double-bogeys, and a quadruple-bogey at No. 12.
