LA ROMANA, Dominican Republic (AP) — Alvaro Ortiz of Mexico made birdie on the par-5 18th on Saturday for a 2-under 70, giving him a one-shot lead and a third opportunity to capture the Latin American Amateur Championship.
Ortiz lost in a three-man playoff in 2017 and was runner-up last year to Joaquin Niemann.
A victory would earn the 23-year-old Mexican a spot in the Masters, along with an exemption into the final stage of qualifying for the U.S. Open and British Open.
CASA DE CAMPO, Dominican Republic (AP) — Alvaro Ortiz of Mexico had an ideal start Thursday in hopes of turning his fortunes in the Latin American Amateur Championship, opening with a 6-under 66 to build a three-shot lead after the opening round.
Ortiz has been runner-up in the Latin American Amateur the last two years. He finished five shots behind Joaquin Niemann of Chile last year, and he lost in a three-man playoff to Toto Gana the previous year.
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — The cheers kept coming across Muirfield Village, even after Tiger Woods was done making another run up the leaderboard at the Memorial.
Patrick Cantlay made two eagles, including a hole-in-one.
Joaquin Niemann, the 19-year-old from Chile, took the lead with a 50-foot eagle putt and fell out of the lead when his bid for another eagle attempt landed in a tiny corner of a meandering creek.
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Joaquin Niemann could figure out where Tiger Woods was on the golf course from the mass of people following him a few groups ahead, and he had a pretty good idea what he was doing from all the noise, at least before Woods put a putter in his hands.
"There was so many people," Niemann said.
The few that stuck behind for the 19-year-old Chilean saw another good show.
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Tiger worked his way into contention at the Memorial, despite his putter letting him down.
He energized the crowd, too, with a brilliant eagle on the par-5 11th at Muirfield Village, a place where he's won five times.
Woods' wedge shot from 97 yards out hit past the hole before spinning backward and rolling in. He raised his arms in triumph, pitched his club to the caddy and acknowledged the roar from the gallery.
He carded a 67 for the day, but it should have been better.
DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) — Hideki Matsuyama and Tiger Woods hit their stride at the end of their rounds at the Memorial, and it paid off in different ways.
Matsuyama was in the middle of the pack at Muirfield Village when he ran off four straight birdies and then holed out with a wedge from 130 yards on the 17th hole for an eagle that sent him to a 7-under 65 and a share of the lead with 19-year-old Joaquin Niemann of Chile and Abraham Ancer of Mexico.
