Arnold Palmer Invitation (Round 1 Recap)

Low scores were abound at Bay Hill on Thursday, as J.J. Henry & President Cup captain Fred Couples went into to the clubhouse with a share of the lead, each shooting a 5-under 65 at Arnie’s tournament in Orlando.

Ernie Els withdrew from the tournament on heels of his public announcement regarding his Ben, who suffers from Autism. His replacement, Cliff Kresge, who also has an autistic son, was the first alternate for the Invite. He made it worthwhile as he carded a 3-under 67 and a tie for 7th.

There was a bit of some shot-trickery at he 15th hole, a 425-yard dogleg right boasting low Magnolia trees on either side of the fairway.

Colin Montgomerie found the right rough on his tee shot and made a successful low-lining recovery shot from between two trees, hitting the green in two and making a birdie putt for 3.

Woody Austin found the left rough on the 15th and was literally forced to his knees. Doing his best “Dorf On Golf” impression, he hit a low-iron from his knees and rolled to the ball to within 60 feet of the hole. He carded a par for the hole.

And where’s Tiger??? Middle of the pack at Even par, and by no means out of it.
