Golfer Scottie Scheffler Dominates at Arnold Palmer Invitational with Impressive Six-Under 66 Performance

March 5, 2023 (Golf Channel) – World-class golfer Scottie Scheffler delivered a stunning display of golf at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, carding a six-under 66 to secure a five-shot victory over the competition.

Scheffler, already renowned for his exceptional ball-striking abilities, found his putting stroke at Bay Hill, leaving no chance for his rivals. Rory McIlroy, who finished in third place, praised Scheffler‘s performance, acknowledging that he “lapped the field” with his bogey-free round.

“This is a super tough golf course and to be six under today going out with the lead and just sort of lapping the field is super impressive,” McIlroy remarked. “But we all knew that he had this in him. His ball-striking is, honestly, on another level compared to everyone else right now. We knew if he started to hole putts, then this sort of stuff would happen.”

Scheffler‘s dominant display resulted in a 15-under 273 total, giving him a convincing five-shot win and a $4 million payday from the $20 million purse. This victory marks Scheffler‘s seventh career win, further solidifying his status as one of the premier players on the PGA Tour.

The triumph comes just a week before Scheffler sets out to defend his title at the prestigious Players Championship, where he will undoubtedly be one of the favorites to claim the prestigious trophy.
