Although last week’s WGC event was help in Florida the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard is normally the official start to the Florida swing of the PGA Tour.
In 1954 Dr Phillips sold his holdings to Granada Groves, a subsidiary of the Minute Maid Corporation, and retained only the raw land. Tom Barnes, a native of Minnesota, who had always wanted to build a championship golf course, took an option out on the land with his partner, Tom Dore, a Michigan businessman who surveyed the land and saw an immediate vision of what this land could become.
They broke ground on the golf course in 1960 and christened the area “Bay Hill” The original golf course architect was Dick Wilson, Bay Hill was the first golf course planted with Tifway (Tifton 419) Bermuda grass. Wildlife still inhabited the land including a family of bobcats that resided around the 17th green. In 1965,
Walt Disney announced the purchase of over 27,000 acres of land nearby, where the Walt Disney World Resort would soon emerge.
The same year, Arnold Palmer played in and won a charity exhibition tournament at Bay Hill, Arnold fell in love with the course and the area, so much so he wanted to own it.
In the summer of 2009 Arnold decided to redesign the course with his design company. He redesigned all 18 greens, reworked of all the bunkering and made major changes to four holes. The yardage went up from 7,103 to 7,196.

My tips to Win:
It was great to see Viktor Hovland 12/1 – with WilliamHill – reaction to his quadruple bogey at his 18th hole on Friday and the way he handled himself and then still go on to shoot 66 and 67 in his final two round to take the runner-up spot. From his last three starts on the PGA Tour Viktor has finished in the Top 5 and in the middle of that he also teed it up at the Saudi International on the European Tour and had a sixth-place finish and I think he is the man to beat this week even though he isn’t favourite with the bookies.
This week’s defending champion is Tyrrell Hatton 18/1 – with SportingBet – someone I tipped last week and was surprised how he fell away after opening up with three birdies in his first round at the WGC Workday Championship, but he did seem to get it back on track in his final round shooting a 69 to move into the Top 25. Apart from his win last year Tyrrell had a fourth-place finish the first time he teed it up in this event so it’s a course that he obviously enjoys playing and I expect him to be back challenging again this week.
I am sure Matthew Fitzpatrick 25/1 – with BetFred – will be disappointed with his final round at the weekends WGC event but his eleventh-place finish followed on from his Top 5 the week before at the Genesis Invitational and I am sure he will be in confident mood teeing it up here this week. Matt is another European player that seems to enjoy playing at Bay Hill having had two Top 10 finishes here in the last two years one of which is was a runner-up two years ago and he will be looking to get his first PGA Tour victory under his belt this week.
Another European winner of this event is Francesco Molinari 33/1 – with BetFred – who won here two years ago. In his last four starts on the PGA Tour Frankie has had three Top 10 finishes and coming back to a course that he has won on and has had three other Top 10 finishes, which include a Top 5 finish then I think these are good odds for the lad from Turin.
A win, a runner-up and two other Top 10 finishes here at the Arnold Palmer Invitational shows Mark Leishman 50/1 – with UniBet – really does enjoy playing in this event. Marc had a Top 5 finish at the Sony Open earlier in the year and a couple of other Top 25s but has not challenged over the last couple of weeks but he has played some solid golf. I think being back at Bay Hill will see him back in the hunt this week.
A final round 79 here last year took Christiaan Bezuidenhout 100/1 – with UniBet – out of the tournament and see him crash out of the Top 5 and finish in eighteenth-place. A lot has passed under the bridge since then including back-to-back wins on the European Tour and I think Christiaan may feel he has a point to prove this week.
