Morgan Hoffmann still leads the way in the Arnold Palmer Invitational, Hoffmann carded an impressive 7 under par 65 to finish day 2 thirteen under par and 3 shots ahead of last years winner Matt Every, Henrik Stenson and Harris English. 

Hoffmann's 131 2 day total is just one away from the record halfway score of 130, set by Adam Scott, but even Scott couldn't hold on to take the title that year. 

World number 1 Rory McIlroy made 7 birdies on his way to a second round 6 under par, leaving him 5 behind leader Hoffmann. McIlroy seemed as impressive from tee to green as he did on day 1, but improved significantly on the greens, holing some great long putts. 

Before today Rory had not had a sub 70 round in the US in 2015, lets just hope this form continues until the Masters. 

Swede Henrik Stenson got off to a slow start on day 2 with a level par front 9, but his back 9 was more than impressive. Stenson made 6 birdies and no bogies to finish at 10 under par for the first 2 days and still in with a chance of taking the title. 

Last years favorite Adam Scott struggled on day 2, the former Masters champion made 5 bogies in his round to finish the day on +1. 

The low score of the day went to young Danny Lee, he made 8 birdies and no bogies to score an incredible 8 under par 64 to move 67 spots up the leaderboard.

The back 9 at Bay Hill seems to be playing easier this week and I expect a great finish to this championship, a Sunday shootout seems to be on the cards.
