pretty consistently.


For Merrick, who was still seeking his first win in 154 starts, it was a frustrating round. He recovered from a double bogey to shoot a 69 for a 272 total.


“The wheels were coming off the train,” Merrick said. “I hung in there after the double bogey and I’m proud of myself.”


Davis Love III, Nick O’Hern and Merrick shared the lead after the third round and were quickly joined by McIlroy, Kevin Stadler and Campbell. McIlroy had a solo two-stroke lead after making four birdies through 11 holes, but faltered with two bogeys and then a double bogey on No. 18.


O’Hern birdied 15 and 17 to help create a logjam that saw as many as four players tied for the lead down the stretch. But his chances ended when he drove into the water on 18. Johnson emerged from the pack by hitting his 161-yard second to nine feet on the par-4 17th and making the putt for birdie. ■


CHARITY LINK


Youth Programs, Inc. was established in 1958 and chartered in 1960 as a non-profit organization to run a professional golf tournament in Memphis (TN) and raise funds for youth-oriented charities. In 1970, YPI chose St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as its sole beneficiary. Since that date, St. Jude has realized more than $26 million as a direct result of its affiliation with the tournament and the PGA TOUR. YPI is the governing body of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and, by contract with the PGA TOUR, serves as host organization of the Memphis TOUR stop.

Course Insight


Dustin Johnson became the seventh player in his 20s to win on TOUR in 2012. This was the third time since 2005 that the winner of this event did not reach double digits under par. Jeff Maggert won at 9 under in 2006 and Justin Leonard won at 4 under in 2008.


With his victory, Dustin Johnson became the 13th American to win the FedEx St. Jude Classic in the last 14 years (England’s Lee Westwood, 2010).


TPC SOUTHWIND


Golf course architect Ron Prichard teamed with former U.S. Open champions Hubert Green and Fuzzy Zoeller to design the original TPC Southwind. In 2004, Loren Roberts, a Tennessee native,


oversaw a renovation that removed


dozens of trees to enhance playability and shot lines, which had been altered with time. The rough was seeded with fescue grass, which makes it even more difficult, and the greens were also re-seeded to try and negate the effects of the summer heat and humidity in Memphis.
