Leishman rules Arnie’s tourney

ORLANDO.  - Australian Marc Leishman sank a monster eagle putt at the par-five 16th and stormed to a one-stroke victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida on Sunday.

With a finish that would have earned the approval of the late tournament host, Leishman sank a 50-footer dead centre and then made clutch up-and-down pars at the final two holes to secure the win at Bay Hill.

The 33-year-old carded 69 to finish on 11-under-par 277 for the tournament, clinching his second PGA Tour victory and an invitation to the April 6-9 U.S. Masters.

Overnight leaders Charley Hoffman and Kevin Kisner, who both hit 73s, finished tied for second on 10-under.– Reuters
