Cabrera Bello opens with 65 at Bay Hill for early lead

Arnold Palmer Invitational: $9.1M purse up for grabs after Tiger Woods injury

Arnold Palmer Invitational: $9.1M purse up for grabs after Tiger Woods injury

After a bogey at the first, Cabrera Bello bounced back with a perfectly-judged three-iron at the 215-yard second hole, where his ball landed on the front of the green and curled deliciously with the slope before to settle barely a foot away.

He played Bay Hill for the first time Thursday with Palmer's grandson, Sam Saunders, and had an ideal debut with a 7-under-par 65 for a two-shot lead in the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Orlando, Fla.

Then the American aimed another jibe at golf's rule-makers after his round, saying, "I think that it would be nice if we never heard from the USGA".

Day, 31, a 12-time PGA Tour victor who won the Arnold Palmer tournament at Bay Hill in 2016, had not played since tying for fourth at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last month and told the PGA Tour that his back had been bothering him over the past week.

"I am definitely feeling very comfortable with the cut shot", he said.

"It's a penalizing course if you don't hit very good shots, and I hit some awful shots today", Mickelson said.

Phil Mickelson was back at Bay Hill for the first time in six years and was entertaining as ever.

Former world number one Jason Day called it quits after hitting his second shot into water at the par-five 16th, his seventh, and said that an MRI on Monday had revealed a disc tear.

He is expected to return for more talks this week. "We are determined to maintain this record of leadership outside the EU". However, Communities Secretary James Brokenshire said the money was not linked to support for the withdrawal agreement.

Mickelson's double-bogey came at the expense of one of the more daring shots of the day as the five-time major victor attempted a right-handed effort behind a net.

"I've made a lot of doubles in my day", Mickelson said.

The 2017 Palmer event victor rinsed his tee-shot at Bay Hill's par-5 sixth, but was unaware it had not crossed the water hazard until he was halfway up the fairway.

"I'm really happy to be playing here for the first time".

Day had finished T4-T5 in his last two starts on Tour, but it is now unclear whether or not he will play in next week's Players Championship, which he won in 2016.

Finishing with a two-under total, Leishman had the driver going, hitting 10 from 14 fairways at Bay Hill. "And it's hard enough going out there trying to get your golf ball around 18 holes here at this great golf course and just trying to stay in the moment".

Off camera, you can hear Hatton's caddie say, "No".

His lone bogey came at the 10th, but he bounced back with four birdies over his next five to help close out a stellar round.
