Arnold Palmer Invitational.
The Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando was the site of this weeks PGA Tour stop. Rory McIlroy won with a strong showing on the back nine of the final round. He shot a 67 to win by 3 over Bryson DeChambeau. Bryson played his own style of golf, but played well none the less! Justin Rose shot a final round of 67 to finish third. Hendrik Stenson stumbled to a 71 for 4th. Tiger Woods got everybody excited once again as he started his Sunday charge. An out-of-bounds tee shot on the par 5 16th took the wind out of his sails. As it tuned out, the poor tee shot did not cost him anything as he would have finished in 5th regardless. Every golf fan on the planet is eagerly awaiting the Masters. It is going to be wild!
Inbee Park is like a silent assassin. She sneaks up on you and defeats you without much effort or fanfare. The Olympic Gold Medal winner this week won the Founders Cup which celebrates the founders of the LPGA. She won by 5 over Marina Alex of the US, Ariya Jutanugarn of Thailand and Dame Laura Davies of England who turned back the clock with her best showing in quite a few years, shooting a 63 in the third round. She limped around the course in the final round with a calf injury, but you could see she was enjoying every minute out there!
Inbee, at the age of 29, has 19 LPGA wins; 7 major championships – including four of the five majors – and an Olympic gold medal in Rio. Her golf swing does not have the pizzaz of Tiger or the smoothness of Ernie, but she has the best putting stroke on the planet. That, along with her consistency, makes her a threat at every tournament she competes in.
