Adam Scott matched a course record by shooting a 10-under 62 in the opening round of the 2014 Arnold Palmer Invitational on Thursday and holds a three-stroke lead entering Day 2.
Scott had a pair of eagles on the day and finished par-or-better on 17 his 18 holes. He finished his round before either of the two golfers to finish at No. 2 even began theirs in the afternoon at Bay Hill.
Ryo Ishikawa and John Merrick both shot 7-under 65s in the afternoon draw, one shot ahead of fourth-place Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño. Brandt Snedeker leads a group of six golfers who are tied for fifth at 5-under, and he'll play one group ahead of Scott in a two-group cluster that should be the focus of the TV coverage window in the afternoon.
Scott will tee off on Friday at 1:08 p.m. alongside Justin Rose and Patrick Reed. Ishikawa is among the day's first trios, getting started at 7:59 a.m., while Merrick will begin his round at 8:47 a.m.
