  • The 12-foot birdie putt Zach Johnson made on the first playoff hole Sunday was set up by a magnificent punch 6-iron into the 18th green.

  • The last time Tiger Woods hit all 14 of his fairways in one round was six years ago. He nearly did it twice this past week at the Memorial, hitting a remarkable 49 of 56 fairways (87.5 percent).

  • There must be something magical about the greenside rough at Muirfield Village, at least when it comes to Tiger Woods and the final round of the Memorial.
