Adam Scott takes control at the Arnold Palmer Invitational

Published Add your comment

Adam Scott built a 7 shot lead at the halfway stage of the Arnold Palmer Invitational after firing a second round 4 under, 68, at Bay Hill.

Masters champion Scott, looking for an 11th PGA Tour title, showed why he is regarded as one of the best drivers in the game, hitting fairway after fairway on his way to equaling the 36 hole tournament record set in 1981 by Andy Bean and Tom Watson despite suffering from flu like symptoms.

J.B. Holmes, Francesco Molinari, and Chesson Hadley currently share second place on 7 under and look set to spend the weekend battling it out for second place.

Jamie Donaldson, Jason Kokrak, Keegan Bradley, Brandt Snedeker and Morgan Hoffman sit a shot further adrift going into the weekend.

A win for the Australian this weekend at Bay Hill will not only be the perfect preparation for his Masters defence however it will also see him arrive at the Augusta National on the 10th of April as the new world number one.

Tiger Woods, an absentee this week from a tournament he has won on 8 occasions, isn't set to play ahead of the Masters due to a bulging disc in his back and there is still doubt as to whether he will feature at the first Major of the year.
