Lady Gaga denies Bradley Cooper romance rumours as she insists Oscars duet was 'acting' Lady Gaga has hit back at rumours of a romance with her A Star is Born co-star Bradley Cooper, insisting the pair were simply acting during their Oscars duet. The pair raised eyebrows when they performed Shallow from the movie at the Academy Awards on Sunday (24Feb19), putting on an intimate display which was watched by audience members including Bradley's longtime girlfriend Irina Shayk. Speculation quickly began about the nature of Gaga and Bradley's relationship, and chat show host Jimmy Kimmel asked the singer about it as she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday night.

PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. - March or May, there is no shortage of excitement at The Players Championship.

Tiger Woods made only one par on the back nine Thursday, revving up the crowd with five birdies, only to slow his charge with three mistakes.

Emiliano Grillo hit the pin on the island-green 17th and the ball nearly bounced into the water. One group later, Ryan Moore heard the "clink" of ball hitting pin on the fly and heard only cheers for the ninth hole-in-one on the 17th at TPC Sawgrass.

Cabrera Bello fires 65 to lead Arnold Palmer Invitational

Cabrera Bello fires 65 to lead Arnold Palmer Invitational Rafa Cabrera Bello fired a 7-under 65 on Thursday to hold a two-shot lead after the first round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The Spaniard's bogey on No. 1 was the lone blemish in an otherwise perfect round during his debut at Bay Hill. He now holds his first solo lead after any round in his PGA Tour career. Keegan Bradley sits in second place after carding a bogey-free 67. Phil Mickelson and Bubba Watson are among several players tied for third at 4-under. Lefty had an adventurous round that included hitting a right-handed shot straight into an out-of-bounds fence, leading to a double-bogey. Defending champion Rory McIlroy sits in a tie for 52nd at even par.

Harris English had an albatross 2. Kiradech Aphibarnrat had an 84.

There were 23 eagles. Fifty players had a double bogey or worse.

When the day ended, Keegan Bradley and Tommy Fleetwood went different routes to reach the same score and share the lead at 7-under 65.

Bradley got off to a fast start and had three putts for eagle, making one of them. Fleetwood had a big finish with three straight birdie putts of 15 feet or longer.

"If you like golf, you should like this golf course, really," Fleetwood said. "It's just about as fair as you're going to get a test. If you hit it well like I did today, you're going to have chances and you can shoot a score, and people are shooting scores. But you can also get it the other way, as soon as you start struggling and start going the other way, it can easily go against you. It's an amazing course for that."

Fleetwood, Bradley share 36-hole lead at Arnold Palmer Invitational

The three Canadians are well back. Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., shot even-par 72, and Abbotsford, B.C., players Nick Taylor and Adam Hadwin carded 73 and 76, respectively.

Woods hit a shot off a spectator's ankle on the first hole, clipped a tree off the tee on the second hole, managed to get through the front nine, and then thought he might be able to take advantage late in the afternoon as the wind began to die.

He did, and then he didn't.

A birdie was followed by a ball in the water on the par-5 11th for a bogey. Two birdies were followed by a shot in the rough-covered mounds. Two more birdies were followed by a missed par putt from 4 feet. It added to a 70, the 17th time in 18 starts at The Players he failed to break 70. The exception was 2013, when he last won.

Molinari storms from behind to win Arnold Palmer Invitational

Molinari storms from behind to win Arnold Palmer Invitational Francesco Molinari stormed from behind with a final-round, 8-under 64 to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational by two strokes. Molinari turned in a bogey-free performance where he birdied four holes on the back nine, capped by a 44-foot bomb on No. 18 to reach 12-under, which proved to be untouchable by the rest of the field. His 64 was the lowest round of the week. The win marks the 36-year-old Italian's third PGA Tour title, including the 2018 Open Championship. Molinari edged out Englishman Matthew Fitzpatrick, who played in the final group alongside Rory McIlroy. Fitzpatrick held the 54-hole lead but his 71 on Sunday was not enough to pick up his first Tour win.

Through it all, Tommy Fleetwood and Keegan Bradley kept a steady march of solid golf Friday and wound up tied for the lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, four British Open champion Francesco Molinari, Honda Classic winner Keith Mitchell and Billy Horschel led a pack of players at 5-under 139.

"I felt like I could have got something in the 60s today and got off to not actually the best of starts today," Woods said. "I hit some bad shots early, rectified that, made a few adjustments, and then went about my business. And then the back nine, there's nine holes on the back nine, made one par. So that was interesting."

The move from May after 11 years to its traditional March spot on the calendar brought green, softer conditions and more wind than usual, though it was out of the typical May direction. With the rye overseed making the moderate rough more predictable, players took aim.

Fleetwood had only one birdie on the slightly easier back nine, and finished with birdie putts from 15 feet, 30 feet and 18 feet.

"You get on a run like 7, 8, 9, and it feels great after that," Fleetwood said. "Just one of them would feel like a great round, so three of them ... I'll take it."

Byeong Hun An and Brian Harman were at 66, while Rory McIlroy also played bogey-free for a 67. He was in a group with Moore, who used a 54-degree wedge for his ace on the 17th.

McIlroy, Fleetwood share lead at Players Championship

McIlroy, Fleetwood share lead at Players Championship The easy way out was to go low under a tree 20 feet in front of Rory McIlroy. He was looking up.

Through it all, Tommy Fleetwood and Keegan Bradley kept a steady march of solid golf Friday and wound up tied for the lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, four British Open champion Francesco Molinari, Honda Classic winner Keith Mitchell and Billy Horschel led a pack of players at 5-under 139.

"The group right before me, we were walking up 16 ... I think it was Grillo hit the pin about 2 inches above the cup and almost went back in the water," Moore said. "I heard mine clink and I was just waiting to go see where the ball went. And then no ball showed up."

Also at 67 was Vaughn Taylor, who must love the move back to March. Taylor is among 23 players who have competed on the Stadium Players Course in both months. He tied for eighth the last time it was in March in 2006. In the eight times he played in May, he never made the cut.

Bradley, who a week ago shared the 36-hole lead with Fleetwood at Bay Hill, has only one top 10 in his eight trips to the TPC Sawgrass.

"Early in my career, I felt so uncomfortable on this course. I really didn't play well here," Bradley said. "It didn't really enjoy ... it just wasn't a good fit for me. And then this year, I really enjoy the different conditions that we're playing in. I like the rough better, and I think it's a great time of year to play here."

McIlroy was among those who approved of the calendar change. This was only the third time in 10 starts at The Players he broke 70 in the first round.

"I think the course over the last 10 years ... it hasn't lent itself to aggressive play," McIlroy said. "It's sort of position and irons of the tee and really trying to plot your way around the golf course. I hit drivers on holes today that I would never have hit driver the last few years.

"I don't know if the course is easier or not," he said. "We'll see what the stroke average is at the end of the day. But because I think it's playing longer, it'll play longer for most of the guys, and I think it should all even out. But I definitely like the golf course the way it is in March."
