DUBLIN, Ohio — Jason Dufner never lost sight of the big picture even after losing a big lead. It paid off for him Sunday when he rallied from a four-shot deficit and holed a 30-foot par putt on the 18th to close out a victory in the Memorial.

Dufner lost a five-shot lead in the third round. He started the final round facing a four-shot deficit. And then he played his best golf on the back nine, and kept his composure during two rain delays, to close with a 4-under 68 and win by three shots.

“Yesterday was not my best day,” Dufner said of his 77. “But I had to get over it quick. It’s a 72-hole tournament, there’s a lot of things that can happen out there. I knew I was still in the mix.”

Dufner finished at 13-under 275 for his fifth PGA Tour victory, and he joined tournament host Jack Nicklaus as the only Ohio-born winners of the Memorial.

Not since Nick Faldo in the 1989 has anyone shot 77 in the third round and still won on the PGA Tour.

Rickie Fowler, in prime position to force a playoff on the 18th hole by making birdie, instead made bogey after Dufner ended it with his big par putt. Fowler shot 70 and tied for second with Anirban Lahiri, who closed with a 65.

Justin Thomas missed consecutive short birdie putts that stopped any momentum he had. Matt Kuchar fell back with three bogeys on the back nine. They finished another shot behind. Daniel Summerhays, who began the final round with a three-shot lead, began the back nine with two straight bogeys, and he finished with a double bogey for a 78 to tie for 10th.

EUROPEAN TOUR: Renato Paratore won the Nordea Masters in Malmo, Sweden for his first European Tour title.

The 20-year-old Italian finished stroke ahead of Englishmen Chris Wood and last year’s titleholder Matthew Fitzpatrick.

Paratore started the final day at the Barseback Gold and Country Club one stroke behind Wood. He finished at 11-under after having managed par over each of the final four holes to finish with a round of 70.

LPGA: In-Kyung Kim held off two-time defending champion Anna Nordqvist in the ShopRite LPGA Classic in Galloway Township, New Jersey for her fifth tour title.

Tied with Paula Creamer for the second-round lead, Kim closed with a 2-under 69 for a two-stroke victory over Nordqvist.

Kim was making her sixth start since returning from an injury sustained falling down stairs. The 28-year-old won the Reignwood LPGA Classic late last season in China.
