The fans that flock to the Bay Hill Club this week for The Arnold Palmer Invitational are in for a treat. This is a good field of golfers on an historic course. They’ve been teeing it up at Arnie’s place since 1979 with a list of past winners that includes Fuzzy Zoeller, Payne Stewart, Paul Azinger, Tom Kite, Fred Couples, Ben Crenshaw, Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and of course Tiger Woods.
Tiger is attempting to win Arnie’s Tournament for an amazing eighth time. Maybe they should call it Tiger’s Place.
And let’s not forget that Arnie will be everywhere this week shaking hands with old friends and making new ones.
