Arnold Palmer Invitational - R1

Cabrera Bello takes opening lead in Florida

March 07-10
Bay Hill Club and Lodge, Bay Hill, Florida
$9,100,000

Round 2, Round 3, Round 4



Rafa Cabrera Bello posted an opening 7-under 65 in his Bay Hill debut. He recovered from a bogey at the 1st and almost aced the second.

“I had come off a bogey at one, so wasn’t really happy on the (second) tee, I hit it exactly how I wanted. I knew it was a good shot … and then I looked up and see it a foot away.”

World No. 34 Cabrera Bello has won three times on the European Tour but has yet to win on the PGA.

Keegan Bradley shot a bogey-free 67 to take second place and Phil Mickelson sits in third place alongside Graeme McDowell,Patrick Rodgers, Bubba Watson and Billy Horschel.


Australia’s Jason Day withdrew citing a back injury after playing his second shot on the 16th hole. He later revealed he had been struggling with a sore back last week and an MRI scan indicated a tear in a disc.

“I couldn’t play at 100 percent today, so I just wanted to see if I could get out here and my back may have loosened up. But, unfortunately, it didn’t, so I had to pull out.”

Day said he still aims to recover in time for next week’s Players Championship at TPC Sawgrass.
