Patrick Cantlay claimed the Memorial Tournament after beating Collin Morikawa in a play-off on Sunday night.

The pair finished on 13 under par at the end of their respective rounds but they just needed one more hole - the 18th - to find a winner. Cantlay's par was enough to claim the winner's cheque of nearly €1.4million.

Shane Lowry had a good weekend as he came home on six under par after a round of 70. It was good enough for a tie for sixth place but it might have been even better for the Offaly man but he bogeyed three of his first four holes.

Rory McIlroy was further back on one under after a closing round 72.

Cantlay and Morikawa had shared second place after round three in Ohio, six shots behind Spain's Jon Rahm, who gave himself a strong chance of victory with a superb eight-under 64 on Saturday to take the largest 54-hole lead recorded at this tournament.

But Rahm's Saturday night positive Covid-19 test and withdrawal from the tournament had left Cantlay and Morikawa as the sudden leaders on the last morning, with the pair locked in battle through a tense final day.

Both took three bogeys and two birdies on their front nine, before Morikawa snatched a lead with a birdie four on the 11th only for Cantlay to draw level with a birdie three at 13.

Morikawa edged ahead again by birdying the par five 15th, but Cantlay hit back through a 24-foot birdie putt at 17. The pair finished with one-under 71s to be locked together at 13 under par, before Cantlay's par four on the first play-off hole was enough to clinch the title.

"It was such a weird situation, so unfortunate," Cantlay said of Rahm's withdrawal. "Everyone, me included, knows it would be totally different today if that hadn't happened."

American Scottie Scheffler took third at 11-under, a shot ahead of South Africa's Branden Grace.
