With par on the third playoff hole, David Lingmerth emerged with victory over Justin Rose at the 40th Memorial Tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio.
The duo matched 15-under-par 273 aggregates to force a playoff. After exchanging pars on the first two holes of sudden death, Lingmerth rolled in a 52-inch par putt on the decider to defeat the 2010 Memorial champion. The Swede began the day in a two-way tie for second at 12-under and three back of the leader Rose. The 27-year-old, playing in the penultimate group, opened birdie-bogey-birdie, concluding his outward half with six consecutive pars. He squared his second bogey on the 10th and looked like he might be out of contention, but responded with birdies on Nos. 11, 12 and 15 to get right back into the mix. Lingmerth landed 13 greens in regulation, including at the 18th, giving him a look for 16-under from 9'8", but it would slide by on the right. Twice a runner-up on the PGA TOUR, Lingmerth claims his first title in 68 career starts. He is now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone and PGA Championship. He's also fully exempt on TOUR through 2017-18. Jun 7 - 5:46 PM

Overnight leader David Lingmerth bobbed and weaved to an even-par 35-37=72 in today's third round of the Memorial for a 54-hole aggregate of 12-under 204, three shots off the pace of Justin Rose.

Lingmerth began the third round at 12-under and held a one-shot advantage over Jason Dufner. He brushed in a 17'0" birdie on the par-4 first, before giving back two shots on back-to-back bogeys on the fifth and sixth. The Swede would emphatically answer back however, with an eagle-3 at the par-5 seventh, finding the bottom of the cup from 30 feet. Lingmerth squared his third bogey of the day on the 10th, and looked to be out of contention with a double bogey-6 on the 14th, a hole that included two pitch attempts to reach the surface from 24' right of the target, and then a missed five-footer for bogey. The 27-year-old, runner-up twice on the PGA TOUR in 2013, steadied himself by circling birdie on two of his last four to pull back to within three of the lead heading into the final round.

David Lingmerth pured a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in today's second round of the 40th Memorial and owns the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 12-under 132.

Lingmerth landed 14 greens in regulation and connected for seven birdies, including a four-yarder from the fringe at the par-5 seventh. He also rolled in birdies from 27'3", 10'2" and 29'10" at Nos. 8, 9 and 16, respectively. He signed his card in the late morning leading the field with 14 birdies and ranking second in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate clip of 5.644. The Swede is winless in his two-plus seasons on the PGA TOUR, but he knocked on the door twice in his rookie year of 2013, most memorably with a T2 at THE PLAYERS. He also lost in a playoff at the Humana Challenge.
Jun 5 - 12:00 PM

David Lingmerth toured Muirfield Village Golf Club in 5-under-par 36-31=67 in today's opening round of the Memorial and owns a share of the clubhouse lead.

The Swede arrived in Dublin, Ohio, slotted 100th in the FedExCup standings despite the absence of a top 10. Perhaps he's on the way to his first as today's aggregate is his lowest in an opening round this season. Going out in the first threesome off the 10th tee, he went 5-for-7 in scrambling with two bogeys and poured in seven birdies, two of which from at least 10 feet away. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: putting at 3.617.
Jun 4 - 4:56 PM

David Lingmerth makes his third visit to the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and arrives slotted 98th in the FedExCup standings.

Lingmerth is batting .500 on the season going 8-for-16 with five top 25s, the latest coming as a T13 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational back in March. He's missed three cuts on the bounce entering the week but there should be some good vibes at Colonial CC where he's put up a T18 (2013) and a T5 (closing 66-66) in last year's edition. If he's going to repeat his past success in Fort Worth however, he'll have improve on his par-4 scoring average of 4.07 (128th-ranked on TOUR) over the par-70 layout.
May 19 - 1:31 PM

David Lingmerth arrives at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans for his third look at TPC Louisiana.

The Swede enters the week 11th on the Tour reshuffle and 99th in the FedExCup standings. Despite his five top 25s, he remains off the radar for most gamers due to his inconsistency. His 0-for-2 record at this venue makes it easy to overlook Lingmerth when setting fantasy rosters.
Apr 22 - 7:56 PM

David Lingmerth signed for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is on the verge of a top 10 at 10-under 278.

The Swede circled four birdies to just one bogey on his lap around Bay Hill. Highlights included a 16'11" birdie on the par-3 seventh and a 19-footer on the par-3 17th. Lingmerth is quietly having a solid 2014-15 PGA TOUR season. He is poised to move inside the top 70 in the FedExCup standings if the results maintain over the next few hours.
Mar 22 - 3:48 PM

David Lingmerth reached the halfway point of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 8-under-par 69-67=136, five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Swede has missed five of 11 cuts this season, but four of his paydays have gone for top 25s. That knack to deliver on opportunity has him 77th in the FedExCup standings. Thus far at Bay Hill, he's 8-for-9 in scrambling with one bogey against nine birdies. Today's six-pack of par breakers was highlighted by a conversion from 20'2" at the par-3 17th hole. The most recent of Lingmerth's five top 10s on the PGA TOUR was a T5 at Colonial last year. The better of his two previous tries at the API was a T50 in his rookie season of 2013.
Mar 20 - 2:42 PM

David Lingmerth lapped PGA National's Champion Course in 2-under-par 34-34=68, posting three strokes back of the clubhouse lead.

He's been a bit of all or nothing this season with five cuts made in 10 starts, but three were top 25s. That has the Swede 83rd in the FedExCup standings. He rolled in five birdies today, all from inside seven feet. Lingmerth also squared three bogeys, but escaped with bogey from 10'1" at the par-4 14th.

The opening round of the Northern Trust Open was suspended for darkness at 5:50 p.m. PT.

Simply not enough daylight allowed 144 golfers to get a full 18 holes in. David Lingmerth, Jim Herman and Drew Scott have one hole to complete before the first round is put to bed. They'll return to Riviera at 7:45 a.m. on Friday to play the par-4 ninth hole. The second round is scheduled to begin at 6:40 a.m. Lingmerth is low man of the threesome. He's traded four birdies with four bogeys and sits at even par, five strokes back of the six overnight co-leaders. Herman is 2-over. Scott, who open qualified with an eagle-2 on his last hole of the four-spotter, is 3-over.
Feb 19 - 9:50 PM

David Lingmerth turns his attention to Riviera Country Club for this week's Northern Trust Open.

The Swede finished in a share of 29th place at last year's Northern Trust and will look to improve upon that. He currently ranks 85th in strokes gained:tee-to-green which will be useful on a demanding track like Riviera CC. Lingmerth has three top 25s in nine starts this season and makes for an interesting high-risk sleeper this week.
Feb 18 - 8:06 PM

David Lingmerth lost in a playoff during the 2013 Humana Challenge but has a chance at redemption as he returns this week.

Lingmerth finished T78 last year in his first attempt to exact revenge. This week he arrives ranked 65th in the FedExCup standings after collecting a couple top 20s early in the season. The Swede follows the inconsistent patterns of his fellow Swede, Jonas Blixt. Both make for very appealing high-reward sleepers at this week's Humana.
Jan 21 - 10:08 AM

David Lingmerth collected a pair of top 20s over the fall, arriving at 48th place in the FedExCup rankings as we enter the new year.

The Swede went 3-for-5 during the Fall Series, building on his late-season Tour Finals momentum that earned him his TOUR card this year. Already possessing five top 10s after just 54 career PGA TOUR starts, Lingmerth could find his way into the winner's circle before long. He currently sits in 7th position after the first reshuffle and gamers should keep close tabs on the 27-year-old this year.

David Lingmerth carded a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the CIMB Classic and sits three strokes off the overnight lead.

Lingmerth needed the Tour Finals to regain fully exempt status and he's capitalized with top 20s in two of the first three events. He gained entry into this week's field for finishing inside the top 150 in FedExCup points and he's one of just two golfers (Heath Slocum) from the reshuffle category in the field as a result of that criterion. The Swede smothered a bogey at the par-4 12th hole in Kuala Lumpur with five birdies, four of which on his outward side, the back nine of the host track.

David Lingmerth submitted a 3-under-par 36-31=67 for his second round of The McGladrey Classic to post 5-under 135 at the halfway point, four strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Lingmerth finished T17 at the Open, and then missed the cut at TPC Summerlin last week. His putter was all but responsible for today's effort in Sea Island. He landed 14 greens in regulation and circled five birdies, but four of those stretched beyond 10 feet. The gem was a 40'11" conversion at the par-4 13th hole. He also squared two bogeys, but registered a strokes gained: putting clip of 3.328 at last check.
