Orlando:

A final hole bogey denied Jeev Milkha Singh an even-par card and the Indian settled for a one-over 71 to lie tied 41st after the opening round of the the $8.5 million Arnold Palmer Invitational golf tournament in Orlando.

Indian-born Swede Daniel Chopra carded two-under 68 to be tied 10th at the par-70 Bay Hill Club and Lodge. Jeev was not quite at home on his front nine, the only highlight of the stretch being his fifth hole birdie as against a bogey treble that left him two-over at the turn. Things looked better on his way back where birdies on the 11th and 12th holes put him even-par before the 18th hole bogey sent him one-over.

Jason Gore fired a five-under 65 for a one-shot lead over fellow Americans Tim Heron and Jeff Overton who returned identical 66s.
