DUBLIN, Ohio (AP) - Kenny Perry closed with a 3-under 69 on
Sunday to win the Memorial, joining Tiger Woods as the only
three-time winner of the tournament Jack Nicklaus built.
More importantly for Perry, the victory was a big step toward
joining Woods at the Ryder Cup in his home state of Kentucky.
Perry played mistake-free along the back nine until he had a big
cushion, and he coasted to a two-shot victory over Jerry Kelly,
Justin Rose, Mike Weir and Mathew Goggin, who started the final
round ahead by three and stumbled to a 74.
Perry, 47, became the oldest winner of the Memorial.
