Charley Hoffman shot one under par at the Arnold Palmer Invitational to get to 11-under for the tournament, having him tied on top the leaderboard.

Joining Hoffman is Kevin Kisner, who shot four-under on the day.

Kisner has one win on tour, back in November of 2015 when he won the RSM Classic.

The two leaders still have plenty of work to do Sunday as a handful of players are just a few strokes behind them.

Tyrell Hatton, Marc Leishman and Matthew Fitzpatrick all sit at eight-under par, while last weeks winner Adam Hadwin is currently at seven-under par for the tournament.

Some more competition comes from some of the worlds best a little farther down the leaderboard. Rory McIlroy had a round of seven-under par to get to six-under for the tournament.

Rickie Fowler also shot seven-under to get to five-under for the tournament, the same number that Justin Rose sits at as well.

The three to six stroke lead that Hoffman and Kisner have heading into Sunday is a nice cushion to have, but their lead is by no means safe.

Hoffman has won a FedEx Cup playoff event before, but that was back in 2010. Other than that, neither of the two leaders have won a tournament as big as Bay Hill. Both Fowler and McIlroy are very much capable of having another great round tomorrow, and being that they will tee-off and finish their rounds before the leaders, they can really add some pressure.

Every other player on the first page of the leaderboard also has the ability to add pressure to the leaders.

What will make tomorrow fun to watch is the 17th and 18th hole tomorrow. They are two of the toughest at Bay Hill, and with the pressure on, it will be exciting to see who thrives, and who collapses.
