Billy Horschel shot even par in his final round on Sunday at Muirfield Village to win the 2022 Memorial Tournament by four strokes at 13-under over Aaron Wise.
It's Horschel's first win at Muirfield Village and only the second win on the PGA Tour since 2018.

The final round last year was full of drama. Jon Rahm was forced to withdraw after testing positive for COVID-19. This happened after a blistering third round had given him the lead. Patrick Cantlay won the event in a playoff.
Horschel's final round was drama free until he began to miss the fairway off the tee coming down the stretch. His lead briefly shrank to two strokes when he bogeyed the par-3 12th hole, but an eagle putt on No. 15 assured his win.
Here's an in-real-time recap of all that happen on Sunday.
6:16 p.m. - Aaron Wise on nearly sinking a chip for eagle on No. 15
"When (the crowd) got loud, I thought it was going in," he said. "I thought that was going to be a big turning point for me. Instead it was kind of the opposite for me. It was a birdie for me, and Billy holed a 50-footer for eagle. That was the turning point for him."
5:46 p.m. - Billy Horschel wins the Memorial Tournament
Behind an excellent putting stroke and accuracy on the approach, Billy Horschel followed up his 65 on Saturday with a round of 72 on Sunday at Muirfield Village to claim the Memorial Tournament title.
Horschel, who finished at 13-under par, never led by fewer than two strokes for more than one hole. His 53-foot eagle on No. 15 left playing partner Aaron Wise, who finished at 9-under par, firmly behind.
5:36 p.m. - Final group coming down 18
Billy Horschel has a three shot lead after bogeying No. 17 and appears to be in no danger of blowing that lead on the final hole.
Horschel hit his drive in the absolute perfect location, 292 yards down the middle of the fairway. His playing partner and second-place Aaron Wise hit his drive on the right side and even hit a patron. He'll likely have to lay up out of the rough.
5:05 p.m. - Billy Horschel makes an eagle for the history books
Ladies and gentlemen, your 2022 Memorial champion Billy Horschel.
From 53 feet on the 15th hole, Horschel gently rolled his eagle putt down the slope at just the right speed to sneak it inside the right edge to go to a four shot lead at 14-under through 15 holes.
The pressure was on Horschel after Aaron Wise sank a short birdie putt to move to 10-under.
4:53 p.m. - Billy Horschel, again, makes dramatic par putt
Horschel isn't necessarily easing his way to victory, but he's making shots that matter.
Horschel gave himself a difficult par putt after a poor approaching shot and blowing his 50-foot birdie putt 8 feet past the hole. But the man with just three bogeys this entire tournament cashed in again to keep a three-shot lead with four to play.
4:38 p.m. - Horschel saves par after bad tee shot on No. 13
If Horschel hangs on to win, his par save on No. 13 will be seen as the pivotal moment in his final round.
Horschel drove his tee shot well right into the rough and had to lay up in the fairway. From 106 yards out, he hit his approach to 11 feet and sank the par putt. A bogey would have brought him to only a two-shot lead with five to play.
4:15 p.m. - Joaquin Niemann stubs toe
Chilean Joaquin Niemann went from 9-under to 7-under, and likely saw his chances go kersplat, after taking a double bogey at the par-4 14th hole. Hitting his second shot into the left greenside bunker, he blasted over the green into the hairy stuff, then blew his chip six feet past the pin and missed the comebacker. He trails leader Billy Horschel by six shots.
4:10 p.m. - An expensive day for Cameron Young
Young began Sunday in a tie for 12th place at 5-under, which would have won him $255,000. Through 17 holes, Young is 11-over and has slipped to a seven-way tie for 54th, with a purse of $27,720 — a loss of $227,280. A quadruple-bogey on the par-4 No. 9, which included two shots into the water, is the low-water mark of the round so far, though he also has four bogeys and two double-bogeys.
He finished the day 12-over, 84.
3:52 p.m. - Horschel widens lead to four
Seconds after watching his playing partner birdie the par-4 10th, Billy Horschel matched Aaron Wise and moved back to a four-stroke lead at 13-under par.
Horschel, however, put his tee shot on the par-5 11th into the fairway bunker on the right.
3:35 p.m. - Joaquin Niemann within 3 of lead
Joaquin Niemann birdied No. 11 to get to 9-under and within shots of Billy Horschel for the Memorial lead. Niemann, a 23-year-old from Chile, is seeking his second PGA Tour win of the year. He is tied with Aaron Wise for second place.
3:24 p.m. - Bill Horschel playing with fire.
Bill Horschel's lead remains 3, but could/should be a more comfortable cushion. The Floridian missed birdie putts of 6 and 8 feet that would have extended his lead. Aaron Wise is three shots back at -9. Max Homa and Joaquin Niemann are another shot back.
3:05 p.m. - Billy Horschel finally bogeys, lead is 3.
Billy Horschel's bogey-free streak ended at 49 holes when he bogeyed the No. 6 hole on Sunday to fall to 12-under par. Horschel hit into the rough with his first two shots on the 459-yard par-4 hole and couldn't sink a par putt from 9 feet, 7 inches. He leads Aaron Wise by three shots.
1:25 p.m. - Max Homa surging up Memorial leaderboard
Max Homa, owner of the best Twitter game on the Tour, had a blistering start to his final round. He opened the day T19, but with five birdies on the front nine and no bogeys, he's 8-under and in a group tied for second behind Horschel. Homa's 31 through nine holes raised him 17 spots on the leaderboard.
1:00 p.m. - Jordan Speith, Rory McIlroy struggling early in final round
Notable names like Jordan Speith and Rory McIlroy, who golf fans may expect to stage a comeback in the final round, are off to difficult starts. Both are 3-over so far today, with McIlroy through four holes and Speith through five. Speith bogeyed Nos. 3, 4 and 6, while McIlroy double-bogeyed No. 2 and bogeyed No. 3.
12:50 p.m - Mito Pereira double-eagles No. 7
Mito Pereira, the third-place finisher at the PGA Championship, won't contend for the Memorial Tournament title, but he'll possibly walk away with the shot of the week with his albatross on the par-5 7th.
After a 297-yard drive to the middle of the fairway, Pereira holed out from 273 yards away. It was the second-ever double-eagle on No. 7 and the first at the Memorial since 2019.
11:40 a.m. - An eventful front nine for Xander Schauffele
Schauffele, who shot a 73 in Saturday's third round and last summer became the first American to win an Olympic gold medal in golf since 1900, opened his round with a bogey on the first hole. He then reeled off five birdies between holes three and eight, with a par on No. 6, before bogeying No. 9 to make the turn at 3-under for the day.
11:30 a.m. - History on Billy Horschel's side
Horschel, at 13-under, holds a five-shot lead heading into the final round. The largest blown lead in PGA Tour history is six shots, which has happened just six times. At the Memorial, the largest comeback is five shots, most recently by K.J. Choi in 2007.
11:18 a.m. - Kevin Na is a topic of discussion out at Muirfield
Although it won't have any effect on the Memorial Tournament leaderboard, indeed he's not even in the field for this event, Kevin Na's announcement is definitely something the golfers are talking about at Muirfield Village Golf Course.
On Saturday, Na became the first player to publicly resign from the PGA Tour in order to play in the Saudi-financed LIV Golf series.
He is one of six players to have resigned, a person with knowledge of the golfers' decisions told the Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because, other than Na, those players have not spoken out about their decisions. Na announced his decision on social media.
Na, 38, is No. 33 in the world and among four players from the top 50 who have signed up for Saudi riches to play in Greg Norman’s new league of 48-man fields over 54 holes and as much as $25 million in prize money for each event.
Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press contributed to this report.
10:20 a.m. - When do the Memorial Tournament leaders tee off?
Unless something unforeseen happens, Billy Horschel (-13) should cruise to victory in the final round. He'll have a good idea of what the rest of the field is doing by the time he and Aaron Wise (-8) tee off at 1:25 p.m.
Cameron Smith (-8) and Daniel Berger (-7) go at 1:15 p.m., followed by Francesco Molinari (-7) and Jhonattan Vegas (-7) at 1:05 p.m., and Patrick Cantlay (-6) and Joaquinn Niemann (-6) at 12:55 p.m.

9:10 a.m. - 2023 Memorial Tournament honoree announced
As you may have read in this morning's Columbus Dispatch, the 2023 Memorial Tournament honoree will be Larry Nelson.
A three-time major championship winner, Nelson did not begin playing golf until age 21.
The now-74-year-old picked up the game after returning from the Vietnam War in 1969 — an Army buddy had suggested he might be good at golf. And he had immediate success, breaking 70 within nine months of first picking up a club. He turned professional in 1971, made it onto the PGA Tour in 1973 and went on to win 10 times, including the 1981 PGA Championship, 1983 U.S. Open and 1987 PGA Championship.
Nelson played on three U.S. Ryder Cup teams – 1979, 1981 and 1987 at Muirfield Village Golf Club – going 9-0-0 before losing his first match.
"He came to the game late, but he quickly made an impact," Memorial host Jack Nicklaus said. "Larry made himself into a really good player, won major championships and was terrific in the Ryder Cup."
8:40 a.m. - The Muirfield Village Golf Course appears to be putting up a fight today
Granted, the golfers with early tee times on a Sunday tend to be those that have struggled during the week, and a caveat about sample size, but of the 14 golfers who have completed a hole today in Dublin, only four are under par. That group is led by Viktor Hovland who is 2-under through five.
8:00 a.m. - Here we go again! Memorial Tournament's fourth round underway
On a beautiful, mostly sunny morning with 56-degree temperatures and little wind, golfers such as Viktor Hovland, Camilo Villegas and Lucas Glover have made their way to the Muirfield Village Golf Course and teed off their final rounds.

Who won the Memorial Tournament last year?
Defending champion: Patrick Cantlay
Last year: Cantlay defeated Collin Morikawa on the first hole of a sudden death playoff to win his second Memorial (the first coming in 2019), but it goes down as one of the the oddest "what-if?" outcomes in PGA Tour history.
On Saturday, Jon Rahm shot a superb 7-under-par 64 to take a six-shot cushion into what he thought would be his Sunday victory lap round, but within moments of finishing his third round Tour officials approached the Spaniard off the back of the 18th green with news he had tested positive for COVID-19 and would need to withdraw.
