Patrick Cantlay won the USPGA Memorial Tournament for the second time in three years after beating his fellow countryman Collin Morikawa in a play-off.

Morikawa was leading by a margin as 29-year-old Cantlay brought the 71st hole to 13 under par with a birdy before narrowly missing a 26-foot putt to win it on the final hole.

But Cantlay made par on the first extra hole and secured his fifth career win.

The number 15 in the world pocketed a 14 foot birdie putt on the penultimate hole in regular play and then rolled in a 12 foot putt in the play-off. Morikawa, the 2020 PGA Championship winner, was unable to reach him from two meters.

The American couple shot a one-under 71 to stay away from compatriot Scottie Scheffler, who fired a final round of 70 to land on 11 under.

Jack Nicklaus founded the tournament in 1976 and the 18-time major record winner watched on the Muirfield Village course he designed in Ohio.

Rahm had a six-shot lead after round three, but the 26-year-old Spaniard had to retire after being told he had tested positive for Covid-19 when he left the 18th green on Saturday.
