Golf roundup: Keith Mitchell tied for third at Arnold Palmer Invitational

Former Baylor School and University of Georgia standout Keith Mitchell watches his shot from the rough along the ninth fairway at Bay Hill on Friday during the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, Fla. Mitchell won the Honda Classic this past Sunday for his first PGA Tour victory.

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.
