ORLANDO, Fla (AP) – Lee Westwood made a pair of 30-foot putts over the final three holes on Saturday, one for Eagle and the other for a final birdie, for a 7-under-65, England’s timeless Arnold Palmer Invitational

gave Wunder a one-shot lead

Westwood turns 48 next month and feels younger every year He won a third title on the European Tour and is still easily in the top 50 in the world

Now he’s up against US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau, whose 68 included a birdie on the par 5 sixth hole in which he cut off so much water that he only had 70 yards for his second shot on the 531 yard hole

Corey Conners of Canada, who started with a one-shot lead, only managed a 71 with just a few raindrops on a cool, windy day in Bay Hill. He was also a shot back

“It’s nice to still be in these tournaments,” said Westwood. “You must be the top 50 in the world and if you had told me 20 years ago that at 48 you are still the top 50 in the world, maybe i would have been a little skeptical and it just goes to show that i’m still able to play well and obviously fight at these tournaments with all the good young players around me because that’s what i’m doing this week “

Jordan Spieth opened with a birdie and hole-in-one, took the lead by taking a bunker shot on the par-3 seventh, saving par after a tee into the water and shooting 68 with the kind of round which he had I’d rather pass up Spieth prefers boring golf, and that was anything but that

He was two shots back with former PGA Champion Keegan Bradley, who had the lowest score of the week at 64

Spieth didn’t have the only ace Jazz Janewattananond made on 14 Hole continued, poking him in the ix with a 69, leaving him four punches in a group that included Rory McIlroy, who bogeyed the last for a 72. Despite such a pedestrian lap, McIlroy was very controversial

You will be chasing Westwood, who first played the Arnold Palmer Invitational in 1998. He was 11 under 205
Westwood had the lowest score ever at Bay Hill, making only six pars. He had eight birdies and the eagle on Jan. Hole and a pair of three-putt bogeys

Westwood has been around since he was 40 He won five victories last year in his life, including last year in Abu Dhabi, one of the strongest fields of the European Tour. He rallied to win the race to Dubai at the end of last year, his third time he finished the year as Europe’s No. 1

So that didn’t surprise him, especially on a course that suits his eye even though he only has one spot in the top 10

“I’ve lost none of my length and I’ve lost none of my enthusiasm for going to the gym and working out,” Westwood said. “My nerves are still intact, I’m still fighting and enjoying it instead to withdraw “

Spieth is also getting used to being competitive. He had chances in Phoenix and Pebble Beach and was on the brink of confrontation on the Riviera

He started four shots behind him, quickly made up ground with an 18-foot birdie on the first hole, then hit a 5-iron that rolled up the right side of the green, turned towards the cup, and fell on an ace / p>

He’s going to play with Tommy Fleetwood on Sunday, who had a 68 and three behind him, Spieth had to play single for most of Saturday when Justin Rose, who scored a 9 on the third hole, retired shortly afterwards appealed to convulsions

DeChambeau got one of the loudest cheers of the day as he hit the rough with the largest gallery pausing behind the sixth tee to see if he’d go for the green. He aimed well to the right, but it was still exciting for her to see DeChambeau snatch and blast the driver away

The fans, packed behind the ropes on the other side of the water, cheered as his ball fell into the rough 70 meters from the pin

“Oh man, I sure felt like a kid again,” DeChambeau said. “It was exciting, especially when you can make it. It was almost like winning a tournament. It’s kind of a feeling I had It was like, “Oh, I did it” I had the same chills and feeling when I saw it clearly and there was no splash I gave the fans what they wanted “

The tournament won’t be decided until Sunday, and with hardly any rain the greens are unlikely to lose speed and firmness. McIlroy likes his position Westwood likes his even more
