Spieth right back in the mix at Memorial

Unlike Dufner, Summerhays played a composed, blemish-free round that saw him post fivebirdies and onebogey to move into the lead.

As if that competition weren't daunting enough for Summerhays, Rickie Fowler (eightunder) and Justin Thomas (nine under) are lurking close by with their sights set on stealing a title. "But again, playing with the lead on this golf course I imagine is going to be hard". Usually when I go right, it's a setup thing, kind of where am (I) in space oriented to the ball. He's one of the funniest guys out here, too. "I'm working on my breathing".

Dufner, 40, needed to find something.

Summerhays, seeking a first US PGA Tour victory, had six birdies and three bogeys in his 69.

In his now decade-long career on the PGA Tour, Jason Dufner has been the model of consistency.

Calm as ever, Dufner was mostly pleased with taking the stress out of his putting by not having any tough par putts.

Anecdotally, there were numerous occasions when he could be seen flailing over a putt.

"Everything", the 2013 PGA Championship victor said, when asked what he had done well.

Stephen Curry scored 28 points with six 3-pointers and 10 assists as this sure-to-be thrilling trilogy began at last, a long-expected, spectacular grand finale envisioned ever since that July day Durant left Oklahoma City to join the loaded Warriors.

The key to his great play was his putting, something Dufner rarely says. In the article, a doctor discussed his research related to snipers in the Marines and how they breathed.

Sunday will be Day's last competitive round before a week off preparing for the US Open and he'll head to host venue Erin Hills in Wisconsin on Friday.

"I'm excited to have another chance here", Kuchar said.

With just one bogey through the first two rounds, Dufner is five shots clear at 14 under overall. "I really love the greens". Friday's round was in stark contrast to his first, in which he made a triple bogey, three bogeys, and eight birdies to shoot an eventful two-under 70.

"It's good for staying calm, " he said.

"It doesn't look like Duf needs to stay much calmer than he normally is, " Adam Scott joked Friday. I need another couple good rounds, but I feel good with my game. "A little something different".

The Memorial, one of the PGA Tour's most prestigious non-majors, takes place at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

David Lingmerth, of Sweden, hits out of the bunker on the 18th hole during the first round of the Memorial golf tournament, Thursday, June 1, 2017, in Dublin, Ohio.

Lingmerth, a playoff victor over Justin Rose in 2015, got his name on the board quickly with four straight birdies on the front nine to turn in 31, and then he hit a 3-wood to 6 feet on the par-5 15th for an eagle.

Summerhays made six birdies and three bogeys to get within five of the lead.
