Good morning golf fans! Kirt Kitayama won the Arnold Palmer Invitational in dramatic fashion.

1. Kitayama wins despite a triple-bogey 7.

AP report …”Kurt Kitayama allowed an All-Star field of competitors back into the tournament after a triple-bogey. But, he beat them all with a clutch birdie. He also putt the best lag shot of his life to win Sunday’s Arnold Palmer Invitational.

  • Kitayama won the lead by making a birdie on the par-3 17th hole, putting five players in a tie for first place. His 50-foot putt at the final hole was enough to stop Kitayama just inches from the cup.

2. Meanwhile, in Puerto Rico

AP report …”Colombian rookie Nico Echavarria took control of the tournament with two straight birdies down the back nine. He then closed the tournament with a 4-under 68 to win the Puerto Rico Open by two shots for his first PGA TOUR title.

  • “Echavarria was soaked at Grand Reserve on a sunny afternoon, and his friends and family drank champagne after he had tapped in for par.”
  • “He tied the tournament-record at 21-under 267.”

3. Rory rues Tee Shot at 14

Colby Powell, Golf Channel The Northern Irishman had a one shot lead when he played the 14th. He was able to jump up the leaderboard faster than anyone else because everyone around him had fallen apart.

  • McIlroy missed his tee shot on the 190-yard hole. He bunkered left of the green and hit a pin back-left. He couldn’t get up or down, and made bogey.
  • McIlroy stated after his round, “If I look back today the only thing I’ll regret is the tee shot at 14.” “I birdied 13 to get on to the 14 tee, and I honestly thought that I was still a few behind the leader. I saw the scoreboard behind me as I walked to the 14th fairway. I was one ahead. If I knew that, I wouldn’t have attempted to play the shot I played on 14; it was unfortunate.
