3 share lead after 2 rounds at St Jude Classic

And that stellar final round was propelled by a heck of a recovery from a poor third shot on the first hole. 16 and 17. On the par-5 16th, he sent his second shot into a greenside bunker but recovered by chipping out of the sand to inside of 5 feet of the flagstick. "I won't win the golf tournament if I do that", Reavie said. "I'm one for one defending titles, so that's a pretty good stat".

Berger is the fourth back-to-back victor at St. Jude and the first since David Toms did it in 2003 and '04.

Scott, meanwhile, was closer to the cut line than the lead for much of the day, but he stormed home with an eagle and two birdies in the final five holes to jump to equal 11th. His 17-foot birdie putt on No. 15 put him ahead for good as he finished at 10-under 270.

Charl Schwartzel shot 66 and Whee Kim shot 67 to tie for second, one shot back.

Billy Horschel (64), overnight leader Rafa Cabrera Bello (71), Kevin Chappell (69), Chez Reavie (69) and amateur Braden Thornberry (65) tied for fourth at eight under. He almost made it, but a long putt on No. 17 stopped just short of the birdie he needed to pull even with Berger.

Stewart Cink is one shot back, and Ben Crane is two off the pace to round out the top five. "It just kind of happened". He had also converted at the 2005 U.S. Bank in Milwaukee, so this is his first failure in that regard. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he mustered six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.554 strokes tee-to-green and 1.770 on-the-green.

Following a win at the St. Jude Classic yet again, the Plantation, Fla., native is planning to use this victory as more of a relaxer than anything. Thornberry, a sophomore at Mississippi who is from nearby Olive Branch, Mississippi, recently won the NCAA individual championship with for the school's first golf title.

CAMBRIDGE, Ontario - Ariya Jutanugarn was seated by the scorer's tent after finishing her final round Sunday, snapping selfies with In Gee Chun and thinking there was little chance they would return to the course for a playoff at the Manulife LPGA Classic.

Adam Scott's last drive of the day was the best at 18. Perrine Delacour (62) of France and American Lindy Duncan (65) were one shot back.

It was the second PGA Tour victory for 24-year-old Berger, who joins Dave Hill, Lee Trevino and David Toms as back-to-back winners in Memphis.

Frittelli, of South Africa, finished 12 under.
