Rory McIlroy picked up his first victory since September 2016 as he won the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The 28-year-old Northern Irishman carded an eight-under-par 64 to finish on 18 under, three ahead of Bryson DeChambeau at Bay Hill.

"I played a perfect round of golf," McIlroy told Sky Sports.

England's Justin Rose finished in third place on 14 under after he closed out with 67, while Tiger Woods was tied for fifth on 10 under.

Woods, an eight-time winner of the event, closed out the day with a round of 69 to end eight shots back.
