Fleetwood and Bradley open up four-stroke lead at Bay Hill

Rory Mc Ilroy of Northern Ireland looks on from the 15th tee during the second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational

English professional Tommy Fleetwood and four-time PGA Tour victor Keegan Bradley share the top spot as the field heads into moving day.

Fleetwood now sits three shots ahead of overnight leader Rafa Cabrera-Bello (through four holes), with American Billy Horschel (71) in the clubhouse at five under.

Rafa Cabrera Bello had a Bay Hill debut to remember with a 7-under 65 for a two-shot lead while playing with Arnold Palmer's grandson.

"I've been making sure I get my driver turning over (right-to-left) as that's something I've struggled with the last couple of years at the Masters".

Tommy Fleetwood, who shared the 36-hole lead with Bradley, fell into a tie for 11th place at five under after carding three bogeys and a double bogey.

Starting on the tenth tee just after 7 a.m., the 34-year-old Spaniard birdied four of his first six holes, to shoot 32 on his first nine.

"Bay Hill played quite tricky this morning, quite cool starting out and just enough breeze to make every shot challenging", said the Englishman.

"I was surprised because I thought I hit it pretty flush", he said in true Mickelsonian fashion. "I thought I hit it pretty good".

Day, 31, a 12-time PGA Tour victor who won the Arnold Palmer tournament at Bay Hill in 2016, had not played since tying for fourth at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last month and told the PGA Tour that his back had been bothering him over the past week.

Quizzed by reporters after the round Day, who didn't play a practise round or the pro-am this week, said he had hoped the injury would settle down during the round but it hadn't.

"I'd forgotten about that", Baddeley said of the potential Open exemption. "It just wasn't going to work out".

Second-ranked Justin Rose of England is tied for 33rd at 71, defending champion and sixth-ranked Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland totaled 72 and is tied for 49th, seventh-ranked Rickie Fowler of Murrieta finished at 74 and is in a tie for 72nd that includes third-ranked Brooks Koepka, and fifth-ranked Bryson DeChambeau is tied for 85th at 75. "I (aggravated) it last Sunday, and then got an MRI Monday which came back that I had an annular tear in my disc", Day said.

The Mount Juliet golfer eagled the 18th to race to the turn in four-under 32 and move into the top-10 on five-under.
