In The Good, Bad & Unusual, Teryn Gregson recaps the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard, where Francesco Molinari sank a 44-foot birdie to win, Phil Mickelson's high kick on the course impressed the Rockettes and Eddie Pepperell snuck Jack Nicklaus socks into Arnie's Place.

McIlroy, who was seven shots behind and tied for 31st after two rounds, birdied four of his first six holes after starting early in the day, before adding three birdies on the last four holes to lead before Fitzpatrick caught and passed him.

Bradley, the 2011 US PGA champion, made six birdies and two bogeys in his 68 to draw level alongside Fleetwood in Florida.

Fitzpatrick was mistake-free on the course and fired off five birdies, including two in the last four holes.

Molinari watched the birdie putt kiss off the pin and into the cup, and the normally reserved Italian raised his fist and hammered it down in celebration, knowing that would make him hard to beat. If the scale of that achievement can not be surpassed in a standard PGA Tour event, Molinari at least overturned an even bigger deficit at Bay Hill on Sunday.

"It's always a pleasure for us to come back here to his place, it was obviously even better when he was around, but even now you can feel his presence and, yeah, hopefully he saw Rory last year and he saw me this year and he's proud of what we did out there", Molinari said.

"I'm getting myself into contention every week, continue to do that, going into next week", he said.
