McIlroy, DeChambeau put on a show for fans at Bay Hill
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Fans are back on the PGA Tour and Rory McIlroy and Bryson DeChambeau provided the entertainment. McIlroy ran off five straight birdies for a 6-under 66 that gave him an early lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
DeChambeau kept everyone guessing whether he would try to drive over all the water on the 528-yard sixth hole and reach the green. He didn’t. DeChambeau still made birdie on his way to a 67.
Bay Hill allowed 25% capacity, or about 5,000 fans. It felt like more because most of them were watching marquee groups that featured McIlroy, DeChambeau and Jordan Spieth.
