Dublin, OH (Sports Network) - Matt Kuchar carded a 4-under 68 on Sunday and rolled to a 2-stroke victory at the Memorial Tournament.

Ahead by two entering the final round at Muirfield Village Golf Club, Kuchar never relented the advantage, pushing his lead to four shots on the back nine before sinking a 21-foot birdie putt on the last to finish at 12-under-par 276.

It is the sixth career PGA Tour win for Kuchar and his second of the season after February's WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship triumph.

Kevin Chappell birdied four of his last six holes but couldn't overtake Kuchar, instead grabbing solo second at 10-under after a final-round 68. Kyle Stanley (71) placed third at 7-under, while Scott Stallings (67) and Bill Haas (71) tied for fourth at minus-6.

Tiger Woods entered this tournament with four wins in seven starts on the season, but he never found his form at Muirfield Village. The defending champion posted four rounds in the 70s, including Saturday's 79, which matched his career-worst score in a non-major. He opened that round with an outward 44, the highest 9-hole score of his career, then shot even par on Sunday to finish tied for 65th at 8-over 296.
