ADAM SCOTT RACED into an early lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, shooting seven birdies and two eagles in a 10-under-par opening round at Bay Hill.

It’s only day one but three weeks before he defends his Masters title at the season’s first Major in Augusta, Scott looks to be playing some pretty solid golf.

This delicate bunker shot on the 12th left him with a four-footer which he rolled in for birdie.

He followed that up with this 26-foot putt for birdie on the 14th…

And then followed it up with a superb approach shot and an even longer putt on the 15th.
