Charley Hoffman Takes Control at Arnold Palmer Invitational After Round 2

Charley Hoffman Takes Control at Arnold Palmer Invitational After Round 2

MIAMI -Matthew Fitzpatrick fired a bogey-free five-under-par 67 Thursday to match Argentina's Emiliano Grillo for the lead after the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. On the course, Club Ketel One will feature Arnold Palmer memorabilia, highlighting cherished moments throughout Mr. Palmer's life and precious photos of the Nolet family's friendship with "the King".

Rory McIlroy was able to make the cut at one-over par, as was Rickie Fowler who is two-over.

Cold, blustery weather, along with fast greens and thick rough during Thursday's opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational combined to produce hard scoring conditions and clothing choices.

"I'm sure probably people think I'm the amateur out there or the 15-year-old that's got in or something". He was the lead speaker of a press conference Wednesday.

Walking through the tunnel and onto the tee, without an empty seat in the grandstands on both sides and behind the tee box, Saunders flashed a quick thumbs-up.

What it means: After a T-4 in his first start of the 2016-17 season, the Genesis Open, Hoffman had been going the wrong way, with subsequent finishes of T-17, T-24 and T-54.

"I think the rest of the week the greens are going to firm up", 2013 U.S. Open victor Justin Rose said after carding a 71. The nostalgic black and white vignette of Mr. Palmer on the course is accented with his iconic signatureand an open golf umbrella in red, yellow, white and greenhis company logo since 1961. Except for the endless comments of encouragement from the gallery.

Saunders says the tough part was seeing Palmer's cart stationed off the 16th tee.

"If I had my hands out of my pockets for a minute or two, I would be freezing", Grillo said.

'In the long run I would love to play more over here as well as keeping my place in Europe but that's something to figure out hopefully if I can get my tour card over here'. Saunders pulled his 4-iron shot just a touch, and then watched as it hit the base of the flagstick - about as close to a slam-dunk hole-in-one as possible without going in.

Saunders is his own player, and always has been. To his credit, the reigning PGA Tour Rookie of the Year bounced back by birdieing the next hole, a 200-yard par 3.
