Matt Kuchar holds share of lead at Memorial Tournament

Matt Kuchar recovers after a slow start to day three at the Memorial Tournament to remain in joint-lead at the top of the standings alongside William McGirt and Gary Woodland.

Three players remain tied at the top of the Memorial Tournament standings heading into the final round of play at Muirfield Village.

Matt Kuchar, who had joint-lead alongside Brendan Steele after round two, is still in strong contention despite making a slow start on Saturday.

The American found himself one-over-par after 10 holes, before carding birdies on four of the next five holes to move back into first place alongside William McGirt and Gary Woodland.

Rain had halted play with eight players left on the course and one of those, Emiliano Grillo, lost grip of his lead at the top as a double bogey on 17 saw him slip to 13-under-par.

Rory McIlroy remains well off the pace, meanwhile, having ended day three at nine-under way down in a tie for 21st place following his latest round of 70 in Ohio.

Elsewhere, world number one Jason Day is three shots off the lead, while Jordan Spieth is at four under and therefore left with plenty to do if he is to make up ground on the leading pack.
