It was tight and tense virtually all day at Bay Hill for the fourth and final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Bryson DeChambeau, who had nearly driven a par-5 earlier in the week, had a one-shot disadvantage to wily old veteran Lee Westwood coming into the day. Despite starting with a bogey on hole #1, DeChambeau steadied himself and wouldn’t make another one all day long. His 71 at the finish, which included a clutch putt on the 18th to clinch the win, doesn’t look that good on paper.
But he was tied for the low round of the day, showing just how difficult the course had played on the day. Westwood was valiant and on his game during the final round as well, but his 73 just wasn’t enough and it saw him fall off the pace by a single stroke at completion. DeChambeau’s win was his ninth overall professionally and saw him rise to #6 in the world. He also became the first player to multiple wins this season.
