Kuchar grabs three-shot lead

DUBLIN, Ohio -- The 11th hole has played as the next-to-easiest hole at Muirfield Village this week.

Not to mention, Kyle Stanley had played it in 4 under during the first three rounds with birdies in the first two rounds and a 2-footer for eagle on Saturday. So he had to be feeling pretty good as he stepped to the tee.

The 566-yard par 5 exacted a measure of revenge on Sunday, though, as Stanley drove into the right fairway bunker. He blasted back into the fairway, then hit his third shot left of the green, chipped on and two-putted from 17 feet for a bogey.

With Matt Kuchar making a 14-footer for birdie on the same hole, there was a two-shot swing. Kuchar now leads at 11 under while Stanley is second at 8 under.
