DUBLIN, Ohio – Chris DiMarco matched his low round at Muirfield Village on Thursday when he fired a 67 that left him one stroke off Chris Riley’s lead.
DiMarco started on the back nine and made the turn in even par after a trio of birdies and bogeys. But his putter heated up on the front as the Floridian fired a 31 to pull even with Josh Teater.
DiMarco’s first birdie came from 12 feet at the second hole. He went on to birdie both par 3s and both par 5s on the front, holing putts of 23, 9, 3 and 18 feet.
The round of 5 under was just DiMarco’s third in the 60s in 29 trips around Muirfield Village. He also shot 67 in the second round of the 2009 Memorial in his last start here.
DiMarco hasn’t had an easy go of it this year on TOUR. His tie for 14th at The Heritage is his best finish and he currently ranks 104th in the FedExCup.
