Choi edges Moore to win Memorial

K.J. Choi ran off four straight birdies on the front nine to take the lead, then finished withthree clutch par saves from the bunkers and gallery to close with a 7-under 65, giving him a one-shot victory over Ryan Moore. Jack Nicklaus, the tournament founder, stood behind the 18th green and waited with open arms when Choi finished at 17-under 271. Moore ran off five straight birdies until he had to settle for par on the 18th for a 66. All he could do then was wait for Choi to make a mistake, but the South Korean was strong to the end.
