Scottie Scheffler might have started another winning streak. Earlier this year, the world number one won four of five tournaments including The Masters. He slowed down a bit but got back to his winning ways at the Memorial Tournament one week before the U.S. Open. Despite an even par round three, he entered the fourth round with a lead he didn't relinquish.

It was not a simple victory, though. Scheffler started the final round in rough form while Adam Hadwin was playing well to close the gap. Ultimately, the world number one was able to fend him and Collin Morikawa off the rest of the way.

Ludvig Aberg turned in another good performance, though it wasn't enough to dethrone the world number one. The same can be said of Xander Schauffele, Christian Bezuidenhout, and Matt Fitzpatrick.

Even though this was a Signature Event with a limited field, there was a cut. The Memorial Tournament is an Invitational, which keeps the cut intact. This weekend, the cut was made at four over par. That meant the following golfers did not make it to the third round:

  • Chris Gotterup
  • Mackenzie Hughes
  • Jordan Spieth
  • Jake Knapp
  • Justin Rose
  • Lucas Glover
  • Rickie Fowler

One week out from his title defense at the U.S. Open, Wyndham Clark also missed the cut. Through two rounds, he was five over par.

A few golfers who made the cut but couldn't keep the momentum going and struggled in the final two rounds:

  • Tom Kim
  • Matt Kuchar
  • Keegan Bradley
  • Justin Thomas
  • Peter Malnati

Cameron Young and Jackson Koivun, an amateur, also had tough outings at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio. The fourth round proved to be particularly difficult as a majority of golfers were over par for the round.
