Jason Day went wire to wire to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational
On a blustery Sunday afternoon, Jason Day carded a 2-under par 70 in the final round for a 271 total to win his first Arnold Palmer Invitational, adding a confident bust on his way to The Masters. Jason Day began the day with a two-shot lead, but midpoint found himself two shots behind Chappell after eight holes and tied with Stenson.
Day made up for the miss with a 12-foot birdie putt on 17. The reigning PGA Championship winner set up the putt with a perfect, pin high irong on the difficult 224-yard hole.
“I just ground it out. I got it done when I wasn’t quite on. While it was Day’s fifth win in his last 12 starts, it was his first in 2016 and he was pleased to show fans his long off-season break hadn’t left lasting rust.
