Bryson DeChambeau wins the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill, in Florida.
Bryson won the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a final round -1 under par 71 to post -11 under par at the top of the leaderboard;
“Even when I don’t have all the things I need to feel comfortable with my golf swing and with equipment, all the time, I was still able to perform and execute when the time came.”
“And that was pretty exciting.”
“I came here as an amateur, he gave me an invitation and I loved this golf course the minute I arrived. I loved the atmosphere and I love the fans.”
“I loved what Mr. Palmer did with this place and what he’s done, and his legacy he’s left here.”
Lee Westwood, from England, finished in second place at -10 under, after a last round +1 over par 73, not what the English fans were expecting, an even par round would have got him into a play-off;
“He can overpower a golf course. So it’s fun to watch, I think.”
“I thought we had a good battle. I didn’t think anybody was going to shoot 68 or 67.”
“It was a day for playing sensible and hanging on and grinding out the pars.”
Corey Conners of Canada was third, at -9 under par, after a sad final round of +2 over par 74;
“I made some nice saves at the start of the round, just didn’t get the putts to fall today.”
“The greens were rolling really fast, ball seemed to never stop.”
“I didn’t really look at the boards too much throughout the day.”
“A lot of positive things, I struck the ball really well, I was really patient, I felt confident about my game, so really excited where things are at heading into next week.”
Sad Rory McIlroy put the ball in the water twice on the par five 6th hole, and never recovered carding +4 over par 76.
