Great finish to a great competition.
The Arnold Palmer Invitational is a much anticipated event every year on the PGA tour, but this one was going to be different as it was the first since the great man passed away. The event was still fantastically run and had a great feel to remember the man that formed his own 'army' of supporters.
The final round had a fantastic finish that Arnie would have been proud of himself. Marc Leishman holed a monster 50 ft eagle putt on 16 to take the lead, the first time he took the lead that week, and lead for the last 3 holes. A playoff looked a real possibility with Kisner and Hoffman in contention and McIlroy charging up the leader board but a bogey on the last for McIlroy ended his hopes and a bogey on 17 for Hoffman put him in the same boat.
It was another good week for the Brits with 5 finishing in the top 13 and 3 in contention at the start of the day. Matt Fitzpatrick, Rory McIlroy and Tyrell Hatton all with a chance of winning but unfortunately Matt had his worst round of the week and Hatton failed to get his round going. Tommy Fleetwood finished with a 68 to get into the top 10 and Rose finished with a 73 to just miss out on the top 10. Hopefully these players can continue their from going into the masters in just a few weeks time.
