ORLANDO FLORIDA- MARCH 07 Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain plays a shot on the ninth hole during the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by Mastercard at the Bay Hill Club

British Open champion Francesco Molinari shot 69 and headlines a group of six players at three-under that includes two-time Canadian Open champion Jhonattan Vegas, European Ryder Cup hero Tommy Fleetwood and Perez.

Rafa Cabrera Bello made his debut at Bay Hill with a 7-under 65 for a two-shot lead Thursday among the early starters in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. "But, listen, I'm focusing really on the big picture right now".

Day was one of just three Australians to start the week, Aaron Baddeley the best of the remaining two after 18 holes with a 2-under 70 to be T15.

Starting on the tenth tee just after 7 a.m., the 34-year-old Spaniard birdied four of his first six holes, to shoot 32 on his first nine. This time, the new Rules of Golf helped Mickelson because he was able to move the ball one club length and escaped with double bogey. "It seemed like I was hitting it good yesterday, didn't quite feel like I was in the same groove this morning in the warmup, and yeah, I still have to fight a little bit out there".

Bradley, the 2011 PGA champion, posted a bogey-free 67 that included three straight birdies through No. 6, while Phil Mickelson, who won the tournament in 1997, shot 68 to tie for third with Graeme McDowell of Northern Ireland, Bubba Watson, Billy Horschel and Patrick Rodgers of Stanford.

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

"The golf course is hard", said McIlroy, who won previous year at 18-under 270, "Two under is in the top 20. And it's hard enough going out there trying to get your golf ball around 18 holes here at this great golf course and just trying to stay in the moment".

"I (aggravated) it last Sunday and then got an MRI Monday, which came back that I had an annular tear in my disc, and then I've got facet problems as well", Day told PGATour.com.

Jason Day withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill after six holes on Thursday, citing a back injury that left him struggling to walk.

"I've been messing around with a 64-degree lob wedge as I think that could be beneficial around (Augusta)", McIlroy, a victor of the U.S. and British Opens and the PGA Championship, said. He had five top-15 finishes in five starts this season.
