Geoff Ogilvy dropped into a three-way tie atop the Memorial leaderboard, giving up the outright lead by careless missing a par putt inside 3 feet.
The consolation for Ogilvy was a 7-under 65 and a share of the lead Thursday with Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose. They were two shots ahead of a group that included Phil Mickelson, who can go to No. 1 in the world with a victory at Muirfield Village.
Geoff Ogilvy won the Accenture Match Play Championship for the second time in four years, beating Paul Casey 4 and 3 on Sunday to stake his claim as the best in the world at match play.
In a relentless performance at Dove Mountain, the 31-year-old Australian did not trail over the final 62 holes of the tournament and did not have a bogey on his card over the last 57 holes.
Geoff Ogilvy finished the final round the way he started Sunday, six shots clear of a winners-only field at the Mercedes-Benz Championship.
It was the part in the middle he could have done without.
