ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Tommy Fleetwood used two new clubs to make two eagles on his way to a 6-under 66 that set the pace Friday in the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Without an equipment contract, Fleetwood has a mixed bag of clubs. He decided to put in a new 4-iron, which he used to hit his second shot into 18 feet for eagle on the par-5 sixth. He also added a 7-wood for perhaps his best shot of the round on the par-5 12th, which settled
6 week from the hole.
Fleetwood finished at 9-under 135.
Of those who played in the morning, Billy Horschel (71) had the next
best score and was four shots behind.
Rafa Cabrera Bello, who shot 7-under 65 on Thursday for a two-shot lead, played in the afternoon.
