PGA Tour announces new dates for WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational

Rory Mc Ilroy watches his tee shot on the 16th hole in Memphis

It wasn't the final round battle fans were hoping for, but instead a dominant performance from the World No.1 as he cruised to a final round five-under 65 and a three stroke victory over Webb Simpson at 16-under-par.

In truth, it proved a complete mismatch with Koepka striking early and the Northern Irishman discovering that he'd used up his share of holed putts on Saturday. "I enjoyed seeing what he can do".

"If you keep playing well and putting yourself in contention a lot of good things will happen".

Fitzpatrick sank an 18-foot birdie putt at the par-3 11th to seize a one-stroke lead, but sent his next shot off the 12th tee into the water on the way to a double bogey that dropped him behind Koepka and McIlroy.

"Rory is playing with some heat", Koepka said.

The two four-time Major champions will now go out in the final group on Sunday in what promises to be a scintillating final day as the tournament makes its first appearance in Tennessee.

Although he went into the last round behind by a shot, Koepka felt like the favorite to win, given his recent form. His four back-nine birdies? "I've always loved this place so to play so well here is finally get the win here is special". You could make the argument that this season has been as good as last season when he was a runaway victor for Player of the Year. Morikawa was runner-up to Wolff at the 3M Open in Minnesota three weeks ago.

"Knowing that Brooks Koepka and Rory are out in front, I knew it needed to be a low round", Simpson said.

Morikawa, who shot up to 46th in the FedExCup, finished with 47 points, three ahead of Merritt, who himself is up to 68th in the FedExCup.

After winning the WGC-FedEx St. Jude Invitational, Brooks Koepka said he had been unwell during the tournament.

Koepka got up and down to save par at the second and got up and down again for birdie on the par five third to join McIlroy at 12 under. "I probably don't get enough thought process going through my mind sometimes, just get up and hit it". It was his third win of the season, together with, after all the US PGA Championship, and the seventh of his PGA Tour profession.

Koepka, 29, further turned up the pressure by sinking back-to-back birdies at five and six, giving him a three-shot swing over McIlroy, who missed several birdie putts as he opened with 11 successive pars. It's impossible to be disappointed with a top-10 finish, but with the way he started the weekend, it's impossible to ignore what he could have done.

A tap-in eagle at the 16th was the highlight of Fitzpatrick's 69 as he achieved his best WGC finish.

"That would have been incredible for the fans, for everybody that showed up and I'm sure that's what everybody wanted", Koepka said. He is assured to going into the FedEx Cup playoffs as the No. 1 seed.
