Rory Mcllroy has won the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a spectacular back nine charge at Bay Hill, Florida. He birdied five of the last six to card an eight under 64, finishing in style with a 25 foot putt on the 18th.

It's the Northern Irishman's first tour title for two years. With overnight leader Henrik Stenson fading, Bryson Dechambeau finished three shots behind in second.

Former world number one Tiger Woods continues his comeback, tying in fifth place with a solid three under.
