Bay Hill: Kevin Kisner, Charley Hoffman tied for lead

Bay Hill: Kevin Kisner, Charley Hoffman tied for lead

Last year's Open victor caromed two approach shots off the rocks and into the drink and then went all Rory-McIlroy-at-Doral with his 3-iron that obviously was the cause of the two splashdowns.

Grillo went on to walk off the hole with a quadruple bogey following two consecutive shots into the water - one of which, admittedly, was really unlucky.

The ball settled 70 feet away on the fringe, and Hoffman made the putt for a birdie, a 1-under 71 and a share of the lead with Kevin Kisner.

Hoffman got off to a disastrous start with two bogeys.

"If I go and three-putt 16 after, I mean a pretty good bogey on 15, the wind's out of your sails", he said. Hoffman finished with a one-under 71. Daly had one of the most incredible scorecards in PGA Tour history when he took an 18 on the par-5 sixth hole, only to follow that up with a birdie 2 on the next hole. It was in 1999 when Love's tee shot was plugged in the bunker on the 17th hole.

"I'm going to feed off those last three holes going into tomorrow and go from there", Hoffman said.

"Year in and year out, ball-striking is what I do well", the four-times PGA Tour victor told Golf Channel after posting a 10-under total of 134.

In Syrian city, an orderly evacuation of rebels
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights estimates 12,000 will leave under the agreement, including 2,500 rebels. Al-Wair is home to an estimated 75,000 people and has been under siege by government forces since late 2013.

For the players in contention, they know that even without Palmer waiting behind the 18 green to congratulate them on a well-played tournament, a win on Sunday will still be incredibly special.

"It's going to be different", McIlroy said. He also got the last handshake from the King as the Arnold Palmer Invitational victor.

Michelle Wie shot a 65 to tie with Vicky Hurst, Julie Inkster, Jane Park and Sherman Santiwiwatthanaphong for second place.

Tom Lehman and Jeff Maggert shot 66's. They had the two lowest scores of the day in Round 3.

LPGA: Anna Nordqvist shot a tournament-record 11-under 61 to take a two-stroke lead over Stacy Lewis and Ariya Jutanugarn into the final round of the Bank of Hope Founders Cup.

Playing in record 95-degree heat at Desert Ridge, Nordqvist broke the tournament 54-hole record of 19 under set by Ai Miyazato in 2013.

A quick bounce-back with birdie on the 18th brought an end to an inconsistent display on the front nine, although McIlroy did manage to turn in level par for the day.

First-round co-leader Emiliano Grillo fell off the pace with a 6-over 78 that left him in a tie for 19th at 213.
