Arnold Palmer Day 1 recap

Lowry makes'up-and-down start to Arnold Palmer Invitational

Rafa Cabrera Bello plays a shot on the ninth hole during the first round.

Mickelson then took a drop and eventually wracked up a double bogey but in typical lefty style still managed to shoot 68 and head to the second round T3.

"I've been messing around with a 64-degree lob wedge as I think that could be beneficial around (Augusta)", McIlroy, a victor of the USA and British Opens and the PGA Championship, said.

Further birdies followed on the 12th and 13th to take him to three under before rolling in a six-foot birdie putt on the 15th to reach four under at the turn.

Keegan Bradley played bogey-free for a 67 in the morning, as did Cabrera Bello.

"I'm really happy to be playing here for the first time".

The double-bogey included a freaky attempted recovery shot, with the left-handed Mickelson switching to a right-handed stance in a failed attempt to play his way out of trouble when his tee-shot ended up nestled against a fence alongside the left fairway.

The 29-year-old Northern Irishman could become only the sixth player to win all four major titles with a victory at the Masters, an elite club that both Jordan Spieth and Phil Mickelson can also enter this season.

Steve Kerr: Andrew Bogut signing is not official
Bogut most recently played in the National Basketball Association as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers last season. He has career averages of 9.7 points on.535 shooting, 8.7 boards and 1.6 blocks over 28.4 minutes a night.

Rafael Cabrera Bello on Thursday proved a quick learner in his first appearance at Bay Hill in Orlando, Florida, taking the first-round lead with a seven-under-par 65 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

World number two Justin Rose was a shot back after an opening 71.

A four-time US PGA Tour victor and two-time Australian Open champion, Baddeley is regarded as one of the tour's best putters but has struggled lately.

Former Bay Hill champions Jason Day and Marc Leishman, as well as Aaron Baddeley, are the only Australians in the field.

It meant the world No.18 had to walk 300 yards back to the tee and reload for what was his third shot.

"I (aggravated) it last Sunday", he said, "and then got an MRI Monday, which came back that I had an annular tear in my disc, and then I've got set problems as well".

"I saw a physio here and tried to do as much work as I possibly could to get ready for this week".

"When I came off yesterday and I was in the truck with my trainer warming down for the day, he asked how my play was and I said I could have played the par 5s a little better", Fleetwood said.
