ORLANDO, Fla. - Bay Hill provided a few dramatic turnarounds Friday, which was good news for Henrik Stenson, though not so much for Phil Mickelson.
Through it all, Keegan Bradley and Tommy Fleetwood kept a steady march of solid golf going and wound up tied for the lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, four shots clear of anyone else going into the weekend on a course that has been tough all week.
Fleetwood used two new clubs to produce two eagles, which carried him to a 6-under-par 66. Bradley, with the renewed confidence of a player who last year ended six years without a PGA Tour victory, made all but one of his six birdies on the par 4s and had a 68.
They were at 9-under 135, the highest score to lead this event through 36 holes since 2013.
