Rory McIlroy stopped trying to be perfect with his putter this week. He made 349'2" of putts this week. Rory led the field in; Strokes Gained Putting, Proximity to the Hole, Scrambling, and Driving Distance. Looks like Rory is back too.

Thursday night of the 2015 API. Arnold Palmer and Rory McIlroy have dinner together for the first time. Arnold does most of the talking, Rory listens intently. They share two banana splits for dessert. And forge an important friendship late in Palmer's life.

WITH AUTHORITY!!!! Rory McIlroy makes a 25 foot birdie to put an exclamation point on his Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational!!! Bogey free 64 on Sunday to finish at -18!!!!

Michael Collins ESPN Senior Writer 

Since making a bogey on the 11th hole Saturday, Rory McIlroy is -10 and bogey free on his last 23 holes.

Rory McIlroy just hit a 373 yard drive on the par five 16th hole!!! He has 124 yards left for his second shot. All other contestants are now permitted to go home. (Not really but...)

Rory McIlroy looking like the Rory McIlroy everyone was predicting would catch fire and dominate again in golf. Three birdies in a row, including a chip-in at the 15th, give Rory a two shot lead at -16.
