Despite making a triple bogey during the third round, Scottie Scheffler was able to increase his lead at the Memorial Tournament after the day's play.

On Saturday, June 8, Scheffler entered the third round with a three-stroke lead over Viktor Hovland and Adam Hadwin. He started the round with back-to-back birdies on the second and third holes. He bogeyed the first hole but recovered with a birdie on the next. However, he hit the ball out of bounds on the ninth, which led to a triple bogey.

The triple bogey affected all his previous hard work, as he was now 1-over par after the front nine. However, on the back nine, he sank three birdies to get back in the game before bogeying the eighteenth. He ended the day just under par, with a four-stroke lead after 54 holes.

During the post-round interview, the World No. 1 golfer reflected on his round.

"I played good," he said as per ASAP Sports. " Obviously I wish I could have 18 back, but overall I think I played pretty solid, just got a couple bad breaks and it's going to happen around this golf course."
"The golf course is really challenging. You're not going to -- you're not always going to get good breaks, you're not always going to get good lies, so yeah I feel like I played solid today," he added.

Scottie Scheffler is now in a strong position to win his fifth title this season. For the uninitiated, he has registered wins at the Players Championship, Arnold Palmer Invitational, Masters Tournament, and RBC Heritage this season.
