DUBLIN, Ohio – Ryuji Imada is rebounding well after his disappointing finish last week at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.
Imada held the lead midway through the final nine on Sunday at TPC Las Colinas. But he bogeyed three of his last five holes and ended up tied for third, one stroke out of the playoff won by Keegan Bradley.
Imada just made the turn at Muirfield Village in 33 and is 4 under for the tournament. Rory McIlroy leads at 7 under.
Imada made four birdies and one bogey on the front nine. He rolled in a 6-footer at the second hole and a 16-footer at No. 3 before dropping a shot at the par-3 fourth when he couldn’t get up and down from the greenside bunker.
Imada went on to birdie both par 5s on the front side. He rebounded from that lone bogey with a 10-footer at No. 5 and made a 4-footer at the seventh hole.
