He entered the year having never made a hole-in-one as a pro and now has two already this season with one at Pebble Beach. "I played really, really well - played beautifully, actually had control of what I was doing out there - I just didn't finish it off".
Another challenge came from Tiger Woods as the five-time Memorial victor hung on to his place among the contenders during a four-under-par 68 to improve his tournament total to nine under.
On the first extra hole, DeChambeau was the only player in the fairway and missed the green to the right. The last time he won the Memorial Tournament was in 2012. "I hit a lot of good putts today, and I just didn't do it at the end".
Woods was another shot behind, and it looked as though he was about to post his lowest score of the year.
'Cholent' makes an appearance at Scripps National Spelling Bee
Another Indian-American, Atman Balakrishnan, the 12-year-old son of 1985 champion Balu Natarajan, did not advance to the finals. But because the judges didn't define the word for Reagan, they chose to accept her spelling after she had left the stage.
"It's a strong field on the leader-board and I think everybody's going to go out there and try to make the most birdies possible", Niemann said.
Patrick Cantlay, one of three players sharing second overnight, had four birdies in the first eight holes and was two shots ahead at the turn, but dropped three on the way home and finished 14 under.
All of that prompted Hank Haney, Woods' former swing coach, to send this message out from his Twitter account Saturday: "If Tiger wins the Memorial w the 3 penalty shots, 2 three putts and the other 3' missed putt he's had so far then look out for the rest of the year because he will tear it up once he tightens things down a little more".
"I am definitely not taking advantage of how well I'm hitting it", said Woods, who hit 15 of 18 greens and made his only bogeys by twice three-putting.
International Friendly Report: Brazil v Croatia 03 June 2018
Defender Dejan Lovren had the best chance to open in a header that grazed Brazil goalkeeper Alisson's right post after a corner. Despite the looming spectre of the World Cup, now less than two weeks away, the game proved a physical one.
"I had some chances to shoot some good rounds this week, " Woods said after a final-round 72 that left him in a tie for 23rd.
He fell into a three-way playoff with Byeong Hun An and Kyle Stanley. Just like Woods and DeChambeau, he had a few regrets on the greens. Woods seems to have found his new old (or old new?) groove, and his play this week is the new expectation going forward. Justin Thomas, in his debut at No. 1, overcame a pair of early bogeys for a 69 and was at 3 under.
Bryson DeChambeau lists physics as a special interest, describes his current swing theory as an exploration of the anatomical limits of the body and instead of a dream foursome he rattles off a list of physicist, including Albert Einstein, he'd like to meet.
Dustin Johnson followed up his even par on Thursday with an impressive round of six under, putting him level with Bubba Watson and Justin Rose in a share of 11th.
