World No. 93 Hudson Swafford submitted a 4-under-par 35-33=68 after the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a four-day total of 6-under 282, up 14 spots on the live leaderboard to T10.
This was the 29-year-old's fourth API, third cash, and slighty ahead of T11 in 2015 (75-66-68-68). After kicking off in 73-72-69, he began on 2-under (T24), nine adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman and four short of the overnight top 10. The Tallahassee native found 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.571 putts per GIR and 1.966 SG: Putting. He squared bogeys and Nos. 3, 14 and 18 (failed scrambles), outpaced by seven birdies at 2, 4, 10, 12, 13, 15 and 16, four from between seven and 15 feet. For the week, Swafford carded one eagle and 13 birdies versus nine bogeys en route to his third top 25 of the season (11 events) and possibly a second top 10, joining his maiden title five starts ago at the CareerBuilder.
