Arnold Palmer Invitational 2013: Day 2 Leaderboard Analysis, Highlights and More

While Tiger Woods lurks four shots behind, fellow group member Justin Rose still holds a share of the lead with Bill Haas at the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill.

Haas shot the low round of the day with a 66. His eagle on the 16th hole—Haas' second of the week—put him close to the leaders.

Rose didn’t have a strong day like his 65 in the first round, but he was able to hold serve at the top of the leaderboard with a 70.

Woods also shot two under par but closed the round with three straight bogeys. He could’ve been in second place if not for his late-round miscues.

Check out the top 10 leaderboard as the Arnold Palmer Invitational turns to its second half.

Second-Round Highlights

Shot of the Day

The shot of the day goes to a hole-in-one on the 14th hole, as Kevin Chappell aced the par-three in brilliant fashion.

It was a beautiful shot that capped a superior day from Chappell, much more so than his tumultuous first round. 

While Chappell had Round 2’s best shot, notable rounds of the day came from Haas (-6), Ken Duke (-4), J.J. Henry (-5) and Luke Guthrie (-4). All three finished in the leaderboard’s top 10.

 

Justin Rose Stays in the Lead (with Haas) 

Rose was alone in first place after a birdie on the 16th hole, but he couldn’t close out the round positively, as he bogeyed his final hole.

Not all of Rose’s shots were equal today. Watch his approach shot come within two feet of the cup on the sixth:

 

Tiger Woods' Shoot Good, Not Great

As noted before, Tiger didn’t finish his second round strong, but he did have some impressive putts before his late collapse. Check out this 18-foot birdie putt on the 13th hole:

Woods is looking to get his eighth win at the Arnold Palmer Invitational this weekend. It would tie the record for most wins at one event, which currently belongs to Sam Snead.

In addition, a victory would vault Woods ahead of Rory McIlroy for the world's No. 1 ranking. So there's much for Woods to accomplish this weekend at Bay Hill.

He still has a good chance of climbing into one of the final groups for Saturday’s final round. At Bay Hill, everyone expects Tiger to be in the mix—even Arnold Palmer.
