Laird survives early collapse to win Bay Hill:

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Martin Laird of Scotland went from shocking collapse to unlikely champion Sunday at Bay Hill. Three shots behind with four holes to play, Laird made birdies and two clutch pars to close with a 3-over 75 and become the first European winner in the 33-year history of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. On a day of survival, it turned into a revival for Laird. The 75 was the highest final round every by a Bay Hill champion, and it took Laird's best golf to do that. He also needed some help from Steve Marino, who lost the lead with a double bogey from a plugged lie in the bunker on the par-3 17th. Marino made birdie on the 18th for a 72 and wound up one shot behind when Laird two-putted for par from 90 feet. Six-time winner Tiger Woods shot 72 and tied for 24th, seven shots behind.
