Three-putt bogeys at 16 and 18 quelled his momentum and Woods was left to wonder what could have been.

Woods wasn't done there, on the next hole, the 42-year-old hit his tee shot off the flag but unfortunately, he wasn't able to putt for birdie as play was stopped due to the threat of lightning.

Niemann, a former world number one amateur, had shared the first-round lead with Matsuyama and Mexico's Abraham Ancerer and he kept the foot on the accelerator with seven birdies against three bogeys.

Asked if his game was good enough to win, Woods said: "Well, I was 11 under par, and I had wasted a bunch of shots the last two days, and I was four over par in the first round".

That left DeChambeau with an eight-foot putt for par and the title but it drifted left and he signed for a one-under 71. DeChambeau pulled within one shot with a birdie on the par-5 11, and he took the lead with a two-shot swing on the next hole with a birdie as Cantlay made bogey from the bunker.

Tiger Woods flirted with the top of the leaderboard Saturday at the Memorial Tournament, but a couple of late bogeys ended his momentum.

DeChambeau withstood several charges on moving day, with fellow American Patrick Cantlay bagging a stunning, 185-yard hole-in-one at the par-3 eighth hole before an eagle at the par-5 15th.

Woods rolled in a 14-foot eagle putt at the par-five fifth and was five-under for the day through nine. Notes: Tiger Woods, a five-time Memorial victor, is playing for the first time since 2015.

DeChambeau gained the advantage again as he followed another ideal three-wood with a much better approach to 12 feet, while An tugged his second towards the gallery before playing a sublime flop-shot to five feet to put the pressure on the American.

"Just keep thinking about those two 3-footers I missed, " said DeChambeau, who was at 14-under 202. "I played really, really well - played beautifully, actually had control of what I was doing out there - I just didn't finish it off".

He didn't get it, though, as he shot an even-par 72 and stayed at 9 under overall for the tournament.

The five-time Memorial victor missed a short birdie on 14 but gained a share of the lead at 11-under with a birdie at 15.

"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. An hit a remarkable flop shot to within a few feet, meaning he would nearly certainly make par.

Rose, four adrift going into the final round, had two birdies in his first three holes before dropping two shots on the back nine.
