Should be a great tournament this year.



Tiger is out, but Phil is in for the first time since like 2012?



Tee times here: https://arnoldpalmer...layers_pairings



Looking forward to seeing Koepka, Rory, and Phil from the backyard this weekend.



Rory played well today and I think his pro-am team won? Saunders was also looking good. I didnt wake up early enough for the early tee times but tomorrow should be a lot of fun.



The club just finished multi-million dollar renovations to the irrigation system and new short game area. The greens are FASSSSTTT right now and the course is pristine.

    Hard to root against Koepka. So solid and coming off a good performance. Hes my pick

    Going to be a fun watch for sure. Still miss Arnie of course.



    Back in the day Bay Hill had amazing stay and play deals. I played there several times like 25 years ago. I can remember taking the "Gamez challenge" taking out a 7 and trying to hit the same shot he did in 90. (Never even close)



    If I was going to place some money on anyone this year I would probably bet on Fowler. Will definitely be watching!

    To date. We haven't played any majors yet. But, an SoF in the 500s is pretty darned strong.

    Should be a good watch over the next few days!! The weather is really grim here today and over the weekend so getting the chance to see pictures beamed in from Arnie's place in the Sunshine State is impossible not to look forward to.

    As somebody who's walked the course the last 4 years...yes.



    I see Rickie got his double bogey from hitting it into the water out of the way early this week.

    A few nights ago I watched the Arnie special from a few years back.



    What a wonderful person. Gentlemanly doesn't start to describe that man.

    Had a group that went down several times in the mid-90s. It wasn't exactly easy but I'd like to go back and see how much harder the course plays with all of the changes. Feel your pain on the Gamez challenge.

    No, its not. Thats rye overseed for 'tournament time' and they let it grow for the pros. Its more like 5" right now for them.

    J Day hurt!?!? They were just saying at the beginning of PGA Tour Live that he was striping it at the range. He has hit some mega questionable shots in the first hour and a half. I stepped away for a minute did anybody see what happened or what shot he hurt himself on?

    Well he withdrew in 16 fairway after hitting one in the pond, so I can only imagine he is hurt. That or he didn’t want to sign for an 80

    I liked Jason Day up until this shenanigan. What a childish move by him, if the announcers are correct in saying he was fine all week.

    Tough scheduling spot for Jack at Honda now that Bay Hill is the week before The Players



    Looking forward to seeing some of the big names gun it out over the next 4 days



    With the rough this long it could be a week for a straight guy off the tee .. Rickie (early double). Rose or Fleetwood?

    I'm shocked. Shocked I tell ya.
