Ernie Els is looking to become the first double winner this year on the PGA Tour as he hangs on to a one stroke lead over Ben Curtis at The Arnold Palmer Invitational. Els is playing as loose and relaxed as he ever has and could be ready to claim that green jacket in two weeks.
Chris Couch scored the shot of the day when he bounced his approach off the rocks not once, not twice but three times. The Golf Gods smiled upon him and he is only three back of Els.
Fred Couples, Nick Price and Larry Mize have to be feeling a little shell shocked. The trio all carded 66’s but could climb no higher than second place at The Cap Cana Championship. Corey Pavin went really low with a new course record 63. He had nine birdies, including four straight to finish the round.
