But it was Woods that brought out the biggest roars at Muirfield Village Golf Club as he moved within six strokes of the lead.
Jason Day carded a second four-under 68 in succession to tak a share of the clubhouse lead, but Stanley's strong start - he birdied five of his first seven holes - moved him to the summit. On his third try, he hit his approach to 12 feet behind the hole and made it for birdie to beat Byeong Hun An and win for the second time on the PGA Tour.
Tiger Woods ignited the galleries at the Memorial Tournament in OH on Friday with a five-under par 67 but still has a lot of work to do if he is to catch the leading pair of Joaquin Niemann and Kyle Stanley, who top the leaderboard on 11-under 133.
Woods found himself tied for the lead at 11-under after a birdie at No. 15, but struggled over the final three holes.
What a putt. What a reaction. He finished with an 8-foot birdie on the 18th hole. "But I'm in position where if I shoot another good round like I had the last two days, I've got a chance".
"I was releasing the putting beautifully early", he said. And he putted well again at Muirfield Village, but again was slightly scattershot off the tee, hitting just 34 of 56 fairways.
But he also leaves the place of five of his 79 PGA Tour titles lamenting his lackluster putting and needing to get that sorted out in time for the U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills.
He finished with a 4-under-par 68, but much like Friday when he shot 67, he walked off disappointed rather than exuberant.
"I hit the ball well enough that shooting in the low 60s could have been easy if I had just putted normal", he said. But he didn't make a birdie over his last 10 holes, and he fell back when he went bunker-to-bunker on the 17th and made bogey to fall two strokes behind.
"No matter if you're one back or tied for the lead every hole is an opportunity to make a birdie and that's just what I'm going to try and do every single day".
"I didn't score that well", he added, especially lamenting having played the par-5 11th hole in 2 over for the week.
Woods was finishing when a long final round took shape over the last few holes.
An managed to take DeChambeau to an extra hole in the playoff before a poor approach left him needing to hit a very hard flop shot to remain a chance.
The highlight of his premature round was at the Par-5 11th.
DeChambeau wasn't even sure where he was when he finished because so many players worked their way up and down the leaderboard over the final two hours.
