Arnold Palmer Invitational: Tyrrell Hatton & Matthew Fitzpatrick three shots off lead

Brit Matthew Fitzpatrick believes he is hitting form at the perfect time as he plots Masters glory

Sitting 111th in the world rankings, Laird needs to win either this event or the Houston Open in a fortnight's time to join Knox and Lyle in the field at Augusta National, where he has played three times, including a tie for 20th on his debut in 2011.

Racing with friends earned Kisner a suspension last spring at straight-laced Palmetto Golf Club, a SC institution founded in 1892.

Kisner said he learned the hard way not to play for second place on the PGA Tour. Several players are sporting Palmer's umbrella logo on their clothes and golf bags.

"I've learned these guys don't back up, so you've still got to make birdies and attack", said the 33-year-old from SC, whose sole PGA Tour victory came late in 2015.

Kisner appeared to be on his way to a comfortable margin entering Sunday.

His birdie at the par-5 16th hole put him at 4 under for the day and gave him a share of the lead at 10 under.

While he maintained his position atop the Arnold Palmer Invitational leaderboard, Charley Hoffman had to fight to get back.

Kisner almost spun back a wedge shot into the cup on the 10th hole.

I felt it was in there.

His third attempt - his sixth shot - found dry land, although it didn't stop Grillo from hurling his club in to the lake in anger on his way to a quadruple-bogey nine.

Things actually began to turn when Hoffman drained a five-foot bogey putt. Hoffman missed just two (of 14) fairways while navigating Bay Hill Club and Lodge today.

Hoffman's birdies on No. 16 and 18 were putts from 45-feet and 71-feet away, respectively. I actually played a lot better yesterday.

Graeme McDowell had his moments of frustration but finished on a positive note with two birdies on his final four holes for 71 and one-under overall. Each carded 1-over par 73s Sunday.

The 57-year-old Couples birdied five of the first seven holes and added four more on the back nine before bogeying the par-4 18th.

What will make tomorrow fun to watch is the 17th and 18th hole tomorrow. He failed to win any of those events. I knew I had some birdies (chances) after that.

"My timing's just been a little bit off this week, " McIlroy said. "I didn't hit it good off the tee".

A week of tribute for Arnold Palmer has been graced by a stacked leaderboard.

Palmer jokingly left Love a bill for the damage the next day: $3.50 for the parts, $175,000 for the labor. Daly is playing at Bay Hill for the first time since 2006.
