England’s Matthew Fitzpatrick carded a first-round 67 to take a share of the lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The 22-year-old, ranked 30th in the world, birdied three of his last nine holes to end the day on five under par.

Argentina’s Emiliano Grillo had earlier recovered from two early bogeys to reel off seven birdies in cold conditions to set the clubhouse lead at Bay Hill.
