Late Eagle Carries Leishman to Victory at Bay Hill
By The Associated Press
ORLANDO, FL - Marc Leishman of Australia holed a 50-foot eagle putt on the 16th hole to take the lead, and he stayed there with two tough pars to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational and earn a trip to the Masters.

Leishman pitch from 45 yards short of the 18th green rolled out to 3 feet, and he made the par putt for a 3-under 69.

Kevin Kisner had a three-shot lead at the turn, but he didn't make a birdie over his final 11 holes.

Rory McIlroy made a late charge and tied for the lead with a wild birdie around a tree and over the water on the 16th hole, only to three-putt the final hole from 30 feet.

It was the first Arnold Palmer Invitational since the death last September of the tournament host.
