Johnson was the biggest name to miss the cut, joined by rising Spanish talent Jon Rahm, who bowed out early for just the second time since turning pro previous year.
Summerhays did it with a stellar 4-under 68 on Saturday.
Ireland's Shane Lowry is the highest-placed European on the leaderboard following a third-round 70, including six birdies and four bogeys.
Jamie Donaldson of Wales, who had led by two strokes on Friday, carded a 2-over 75 and ended up three strokes behind Wood.
"That's Muirfield Village, " Summerhays said. A train wreck can happen at any moment.
"I really love the greens", said the Swede. "Today, I was really focused on it". "And the other years I've played here, I've always loved it".
Dufner called his third round "pretty pathetic on all accounts, " but added, "I'm still in this tournament". "I've had a lot of good rounds".

Rodgers became only the third Celtic manager after Jock Stein, twice, and Martin O'Neill, to complete the clean sweep. Dembele has not played since suffering a hamstring injury in the semi-final victory over Rangers on April 22.
Summerhays is in a great position after 54 holes, but he'll have plenty of star chasers including a handful of major winners.
He managed with the help of a friend who sent him some research from a doctor who works with snipers in the Marines, and how they focus primarily on their breathing and their heartbeats.
Kuchar's par at the last capped a 67 which earned him outright second ahead of a rejuvenated Watson, who was two over for the day at the turn before starting the back nine with three birdies and an eagle at the 12th, where he hit a towering 210-yard six-iron to three feet. He's no stranger to contending anywhere, but especially at this course where he has nine top-15 finishes. Neither went on to win the tournament. Jack Nicklaus is founder and host. "And I think anybody within probably four or five, six shots of the lead is going to be awfully excited going into tomorrow".
Co-leader Dufner has also had a quiet season, with just one top-10, but one would not have known it by the way he dismantled Muirfield Village. Sometimes you get those situations where the fit is pretty good and you look like a hero. He'll just need another one of those 65s from Thursday and Friday. But the Auburn alum stumbled early on Saturday, dropping four shots on his first five holes.
Four pars were followed by bogey, birdie, bogey on holes 14 through 16, and he closed with pars on 17 and 18 for 68. He's not had the best year, but he normally plays this course quite well. Dufner found his worst trait in putting was not having a consistent routine and getting too fast, nearly as if he wanted to get it over with quickly.
Rickie Fowler hit 66 to reach eight-under, while a significant cohort, including Jordan Spieth, David Lingmerth and Justin Thomas, all tournament winners this season, also took up the chase. "Playing in the last two or three groups at the U.S. Open, that was probably the most nervous I've ever felt".
Matsuyama was among a group of 13 players sharing 13th place that also included five-time major victor Phil Mickelson and Rickie Fowler.
