Scottie Scheffler came through a final-round tussle with Collin Morikawa to claim a fifth PGA Tour victory of the season with a one-shot win at the Memorial Tournament.

Scheffler, who had already won the Arnold Palmer Invitational, The Players, The Masters and the RBC Heritage in a dominant start to the year, now heads into the US Open with five wins in his last eight starts despite being nowhere near his convincing best on Sunday.

The 27-year-old saw his four-shot overnight lead cut to one at Muirfield Village as Morikawa and Adam Hadwin piled on the pressure, although Scheffler never relinquished top spot as he came through a tough final day at Muirfield Village.
