Thursday at Bay Hill: Jon Rahm does Jon Rahm Things, Cameron Young seeks first win among the notes from Day 1 of Arnold Palmer Invitational

Mar, 2023

The Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge is the third of four prestigious events that will take place over a five-week period.

Jon Rahm is still leading the leaderboard, and he’s not a new name. To take a two shot lead into Friday, the Spaniard opened with a 7 under 65.

After three consecutive birdies at Nos. Rahm made a par-4 8th to complete the turn at 2-under 34. To keep the momentum going, he birdied the par-5 12th and then drained a long par effort on the par-4 15.

His flat stick was hot at the par-5 16th, with a 24-footer to eagle to push him nose even with early leaders Chris Kirk or Cameron Young.

A massive 7-iron into the par-3 17th resulted in a kick-in birdie, and 6 under.

He birdied the par-4 after another laser iron shot within 10 feet.

It’s not clear that anyone will be able contain the “Rahmpage”. I’m sorry, but I’ll get out.

We have your back if you missed Thursday’s action. Here are the details from Bay Hill’s Day 1.
