Rory finishes 1 shot behind the winner in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, he's a Man Utd fan, so today's not been a great day for him!

Local boy Aaron Rai in joint 4th place 5 off the lead, going into the last round, with a 65, which included a hole in one on the famous 17th. Tommy Fleetwood also joint 4th, Scheffler leading by 2 shots.

Very comfortable win by 5 shots for Scottie Scheffler, looks in pretty good form for The Masters in just over 3 weeks time. A brilliant back nine of 29 from Tyrell Hatton, as he finished with a 65 to take 2nd place, good tournament also for Viktor Hovland finishing joint 3rd, not so good for Aaron  Rai, after his hole in one yesterday at th 17th, he hit his tee shot in the water and ended up with a triple bogey 6.

Good weekend for the Brits, Matthew Baldwin, after 200 events, wins for the first time in a tournament in South Africa, also good to see Tommy Fleetwood returning to form on the PGA tour, finishing 3rd in Florida, 2 behind the winner.

Rory beaten by Cameron Young on the 19th hole in the WGC Match Play semi final. Surprisingly Scheffler loses to Sam Burns in the other semi.

Admittedly the field was poor, as the top players were competing in the WGC Match Play, but still good to see Matt Wallace winning for the first time on the PGA tour. He won by 1 shot with a final round of 66, his first victory in nearly 5 years.

At the age of 65 Sandy Lyle has announced he is retiring after this week's Masters. Without doubt one of Britain's greatest golfers, best remembered for his famous fairway bunker shot at Augusta's 18th in 1988, which he went on to birdie and became the first Brit to win The Masters, also of course he won The Open in 85 at Sandwich.

Going to be a wet and chilly Masters by the looks of it, you'd think that should hamper the bombers and slow the greens up a bit.

Yeah it's not looking great, Saturday looks like being the worst day with heavy rain all day. Would love to see Rory win it, apart from missing the cut at The Players, has been in good form, but if I had to choose a winner, it would be Scheffler.

Oddschecker have got Scheffler and Rory joint favourites at 7/1, Rahm 9, Spieth 16, Cantlay 18, Thomas 20, Finau, Smith and Schauffele 22, Day, Johnson and Morikawa 25, best Englishman Fitzpatrick 45.

Not a great round from Rory, got a lot of catching up to do, 7 behind the leaders. After 4 putting Rahm had a double bogey 6 on the first, but still ended up one of the joint leaders with a 65, that's not a bad last 17 holes.

A very ragged round from Rory.

If it helps. To view the golf.

Open up Official site.

Click on Leaderboard. Selecting traditional view is less painful on the eyes.

https://www.masters.com/en_US/scores/index.html

Then click on a player.

Move cursor over scorecard/hole (haven't tried a touchscreen), and if it highlights in green, video can be selected of shots on each hole. Almost live if they are out on course.

Worked with most players I watched yesterday,  with the odd "video not available" for some shots.

It was a bit scary those trees falling, thankfully no one was hurt or even worse, mind you they're a tough lot those patrons, it probably didn't bother them.

As it's looking pretty unlikely we're gonna have a home winner, Rose, the best placed Brit, is 8 behind the leader, what be great, if the amateur Sam Bennett were to beat the LIV Brooks Koepka by one shot, with a winning putt on the last hole, extremely unlikely, but you never know.

Not surprisingly Tiger has withdrawn, sadly it looks doubtful that we will be seeing him play again in The Masters.
