Marc Leishman hits eagle on 16 to win 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational

"I've learned these guys don't back up, so you've still got to make birdies and attack", said the 33-year-old from SC, whose sole PGA Tour victory came late in 2015.

"It's been a little bit of a struggle which I didn't really anticipate coming in here", he said.

Australian Marc Leishman remains in contention at the Bay Hill Invitational on the PGA Tour of the United States through three rounds.

After shooting an opening-round 74 that was 2-over par, McIlroy rallied slightly Friday and yesterday felt something might be brewing as he warmed up on the driving range.

Cameron Smith's 69 elevated the young Queenslander to four-under and tied for 15th, while Aaron Baddeley was two shots back in a share of 24th.

The 2011 victor had been sitting in joint-103rd after an opening 77, which had seen him drop five shots in two holes at the end of his back nine, leaving him needing a marked improvement to be around for the weekend in the event's first staging since Palmer's passing away last September.

A lot of eyes were surely on Rory McIlroy and Rickie Fowler as well.

Finally, Canada Pension Plan Investment Board increased its stake in shares of Staples by 17.2% in the third quarter. The business also recently disclosed a quarterly dividend, which will be paid on Thursday, April 13th.

This turn of events was particularly unlikely for Fowler, who was not only 12 shots off the lead when his day began but double bogeyed the third hole to fall farther back. He opened his third round with bogeys on the first and second before pulling a shot back on the fourth. His chip onto the putting surface was handsome and left him only four feet for par, which he made to get into the clubhouse at 11-under with a one-stroke lead over Kisner.

But then came the late rally. Kisner said Saturday that he's just trying to make birdies and go as low as he can.

It came in the shape of a four-under-par 68 - one of the best early scores on the second day - that had jumped Laird, a three-time victor on the PGA Tour and back close to top form after suffering a bit of a dip, up 59 spots by the time he finished. "Pull-hooked a 3-wood down there and then just tried to chase it up the front and was able to make it from the front of the green".

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.
