Scheffler Survives at Bay Hill
On a day in which literally everyone went backwards, Scottie Scheffler survived Bay Hill to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational on Sunday afternoon down in Florida.
Scheffler finished the tournament at 5-under par, to win by one shot over a slew of players including Viktor Hovland and Billy Horschel.
This is Scheffler’s second win in about the last month.
Scheffler Hangs On
After playing the front nine at one-over par, Scheffler birdied the 12th hole to get to five-under par for the tournament.
Neither did he know that the entire field would come back to him.
Scheffler parred out the rest of the way, but it was two huge lag putts not he 17th and 18th holes that sealed it for him.
Players Slide Backwards
Gary Woodland took a one shot lead after an impressive eagle putt on the par-5 16th hole, but followed up with a double-bogey on the par-3 17th and finished with a bogey on 18 to fall back to fifth.
Hovland held the lead for a good portion of the day, but finished the round by bogeying three of the final six holes.
Hovland had a birdie putt on 18 to tie the lead, but left it about a foot short.
Billy Horschel was three-over on the day, but he also had a putt on 18 to tie the lead.
He just missed it.
