ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Rory McIlroy opened with a 7-under 65 on Thursday and had reason to expect a score like this at Bay Hill, not so much because of the course but rather the day of the week.
Good starts have not been a problem for McIlroy at the Arnold Palmer Invitational the last two years.
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Some of the perks from winning for the first time on the PGA Tour are obvious, whether it's a seven-figure check or a two-year exemption. For tournaments offering full FedEx Cup points, there's always that invitation to the Masters.

The bad news for the golf business heading into this week’s PGA Championship is that it’s definitely running out of real estate. The good news might be that it will never run out of wind.
Both factors will be on display at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, which checks in at a beefed-up 7,800-plus yards to claim the title of longest major championship venue ever.
