Woods pleased with progress at Bay Hill

The 42-year-old is playing in just his fifth event since returning from spinal fusion surgery

Rory McIlroy's 8-under 64 on Sunday at the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational marked his first PGA Tour victory since the 2016 Tour Championship.

But instead of revelling in his impressive performance, four-time major champion McIlroy voiced his displeasure with some of the behaviour at Bay Hill Golf Course. About his incredible form on the greens, he said: "I freed up, I didn't worry too much about mechanics, I used a lot of visualisation and that's all I really tried to do this week".

"I knew Mr. Palmer pretty well and I don't think he would like to see golf crowds start acting like crowds at other sports", said Ryan Stead, who is in charge of security at The Arnie. "Maybe a low (score) tomorrow will give me a chance to kind of steal one".

Excited golf fans are nothing new to the PGA Tour.

"They want to try and replicate that, which is great - it's great for the tournament, it's great for us - but golf is different than a football game, and there's etiquette involved, and you don't want people to be put off from bringing their kids when people are shouting stuff out", he said. If all of us could handle ourselves the way Arnie did the world would be a better place. "I've got a headache after all that".

DeChambeau fired a closing 68 to take second on 273, one stroke ahead of England's Rose, who fired a 67, and two in front of Sweden's Stenson with Woods and U.S. compatriot Ryan Moore fifth on 278.

Rickie Fowler had raced up the board into a tie for the lead early on the back nine, but stumbled home with a bogey at 17 and disastrous double at 18 to fall four strokes behind Stenson.

Overnight leader Stenson emerged from the pack after duelling with Bryson DeChambeau on day three at Bay Hill, posting a one-under-par 71 in the PGA Tour event.

Charles Barkley concedes Clemson-AU game at halftime
Following Friday's win over College of Charleston, Auburn is now 3-0 in NCAA Tournament games all-time in state the California. He was sacked by then-athletics director Jay Jacobs at the team hotel in Atlanta following an SEC Tournament loss that season.

Of his approach at 16, McIlroy added, "This was massive, probably the best drive I hit all week".

Stenson had covered the back nine in 31 on Thursday, but after starting from the 10th on Friday, the former Open champion could only manage nine straight pars to reach the turn in 36. And on the final hole, a 12-foot birdie putt was punctuated by an enthusiastic fist pump to end his day.

McIlroy blasted out of a bunker to two feet to birdie the par-5 fourth and sank a 12-foot birdie putt at nine.

Tiger Woods was getting his swag back at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

"I've been hitting a few really close this week and setting up some good opportunities from three or four feet. I felt like I putted well the entire week".

He finished at 10-under par.

Woods shot a 3-under 69 to get to 7 under in the tournament, certainly within striking distance back in his prime. "I was going to go over and have a chat with him".
