Making his tourney debut, World No. 35 Tommy Fleetwood orchestrated a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to post 6-under 282, currently T10 on the leaderboard and up 14 places on the day. UPDATE: Fleetwood finished T10 and is now eligible for Special Temporary Membership with 388 non-member FedExCup points.
After an opening 78, the 26-year-old tacked on 66-70 to begin on 2-under (T24), nine back of 54-hole co-leaders Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and mustered nine greens in regulation, posting 1.556 putts per GIR and needing just 23 putts total. The Englishman squared a lone bogey-5 at 15 (failed scramble), camouflaged with two conventional birdies, a 13-footer from the fringe for birdie-2 at seven, and a hole-out eagle at the par-5 12th from 29'9" away. For the week, the 2-time European Tour winner recorded one eagle and 15 birdies against 11 bogeys. This was Fleetwood's 14th career TOUR start and is a fifth top 25, possibly a third top 10.
