DUBLIN, Ohio (WTVN)--It was a wild weekend at the 2021 Memorial Tournament, and in the end, Patrick Cantlay took home his 2nd championship from Muirfield Village.

It followed a final round in which he ended Sunday's round tied at the top of the leaderboard with Collin Morikawa, at 13-under par.

It took one playoff hole for Cantlay to emerge voctorious.

It was all set up by the withdrawal of Jon Rahm, who was 18-under par after three rounds, and six shots ahead of the rest of the field. Rahm had to withdraw following his round on Saturday, after he tested positive for COVID-19.

For Cantlay, it's his 2nd win at the Memorial, following his title in 2019. Morikawa was seeking his 2nd win at Muirfield Village, after winning the Workday charity event there in July of last year.
