Mickelson crashes out after horror pair of drives


//

Round 2 of the Arnold Palmer Invitational has continued to be tough for the Australian participants with Aaron Baddeley and Marc Leishman well behind the pace at Bay Hill.

Baddeley led the Australian charge with a two-under 70 in the second round placing him ninth overall, while Leishman finished the round tied for 31st two strokes behind Baddeley.

Despite the Australian struggles, Tommy Fleetwood and Keegan Bradley had contrasting fortunes and wound up tied for the lead, finishing the round four shots clear of anyone else going into Sunday's third round.

Fleetwood rode two eagles in the round, which carried him to a 6-under 66, while Bradley showed renewed confidence making all but one of his six birdies on the par 4s and had a 68.

Both Fleetwood and Bradley finished the day at 9-under 135, the highest score to lead Bay Hill through 36 holes since 2013.

Unfortunately for a former winner of the tournament, Phil Mickelson, it was a tournament to forget.

Mickelson, who was making his first appearance at Bay Hill since 2013, failed to make the cut after a pair of horror drives - one out-of-bound, another into water he couldn't see off the tee at No. 8 - that led to double bogeys.

"It's a penalizing course if you don't hit very good shots, and I hit some terrible shots today," Mickelson said.

"That's probably the score I deserved.
