Daniel Summerhays takes advantage of Jason Dufner collapse at Memorial

Lingmerth, Dufner share Memorial lead as Spieth chases, Johnson falters

Lingmerth, who picked up his first PGA Tour victory at the Memorial two years ago, also bogeyed his last hole.

Summerhays carded a four-under par 68 for a 13-under par total of 203. It was a three-shot swing when Summerhays made birdie, and Dufner never caught up.

Daniel Summerhays joined Spieth at 66, while Justin Thomas and Lucas Glover were at 67.

Summerhays, who started the day five strokes behind Dufner, took only five holes to tie for the lead, after Dufner ran up four early bogeys on another fine day at Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio.

Scott was 10 shots better than his Thursday effort on day two and after languishing near the tail of the field through 18 holes is now inside the top 25 with two rounds to play.

Dufner's scorecard included five birdies and an eagle. "The Auburn alum missed birdie at 10 from 6'10" and then ate double bogey-7 at 11 after putting his third to the par 5 into the water.

"Hopefully I can play well tomorrow; that will give me a good boost going into the off week, so I can train and practice a little harder and get some rest before heading to the US Open", said Day. "I would have like to have hit a couple more fairways but hit my irons when I was in the fairways pretty good".

"I managed to still get some decent lies out of the ones that missed the fairway", Lingmerth said.

CHASING: Dufner was so smooth through two rounds and appeared unstoppable. "He had two fantastic days".

"The tournament is not over", Dufner said.

Watson offset a birdie at 15 with a bogey at the next, and a ideal 20-foot putt for another birdie on the final green completed a four-under 68 as he chases a first victory since the Northern Trust Open at Riviera in February previous year. "I can always get into the top five and there's a lot of FedEx Cup points and prize money at stake", said Leishman. Fowler (66) was another shot behind.

Sweden's David Lingmerth, the overnight co-leader with Dufner, followed up his opening 65 with a two-over 74 and was in a group of six players on 139 that also included Scotland's Martin Laird, Argentina's Emiliano Grillo and two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson. I made some nice pars and rolled in some putts.

The four-time victor on the PGA Tour threatened to run away with the tournament after breaking the event's 36-hole record at Muirfield Village on Friday but he faded dramatically, holing six bogeys and a double-bogey.

Nine of the 12 Australians who began the week have qualified for the weekend, Greg Chalmers, Rod Pampling, Cameron Smith, Jason Day, Matthew Griffin and Curtis Luck all the right side of 3-over. He wound up finishing one back of Kevin Kisner, and Spieth brought his form to Ohio.
