Indian-American golfer Sahith Theegala faced disappointment in the final round of the Memorial golf tournament, finishing with a three-over 75 and tying 12th place, alongside Rory McIlroy.

Scottie Scheffler, despite a two-over 74 final round, clinched his fifth season win at the demanding Muirfield Village course, lifting the trophy with a handshake from golfing legend Jack Nicklaus. His earnings for the season surged past USD 24 million, setting a new PGA TOUR record.

Scheffler's solid performance saw him finish at eight-under, ahead of Collin Morikawa. The result also marked his sixth win since December 2023, continuing a streak of top 10 finishes in his last 11 tournaments.
