Kurt Kitayama claims 2023 Arnold Palmer Invitational for first PGA Tour win

A PGA Tour designated event delivered once again, this time at Bay Hill Club and Lodge.

Fourteen players were within three shots of the lead down the stretch on Sunday in Orlando, including four major champions and a five-way tie at the top with just three holes to play.

In the end, it was Kurt Kitayama who came out on top. Kitayama shot an even-par 72 to hold on for his first PGA Tour win at 9 under and his first professional victory since the 2019 Oman Open on the DP World Tour. The 30-year-old from Chico, California, finished runner-up earlier this year at the CJ Cup in South Carolina and twice last season at the Mexico Open and Genesis Scottish Open.

Rory McIlroy and Harris English finished T-2 at 8 under, with Patrick Cantlay, Jordan Spieth, Tyrell Hatton and defending champion Scottie Scheffler all T-4 at 7 under.
