David Lingmerth Wins Memorial Tournament

David Lingmerth’s first PGA Tour victory came on the strength of a clutch putting performance.

The 27-year-old Swede defeated Justin Rose in a three-hole, sudden-death playoff after shooting a final-round 69 to come from three shots back of Rose.

Lingmerth drained a 10-foot par putt on the first extra hole to extend the playoff. He initially thought the putt would be for the win, but Rose made a 20-foot par putt right before to apply the pressure. Lingmerth also made a five-foot par putt for the victory on the third playoff hole.

For the week, Lingmerth finished third in strokes gained/putting, T9 in distance of putts made, T8 in total putts and seventh in putts per green in regulation.

The Ping staffer plays a Ping Cadence TR Ketsch putter with traditional weighting.
