TOURNAMENT: Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard
HOST COURSE: Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Orlando, Florida, USA
PRIZE FUND: $5,500,000
COURSE DETAILS: Par 70, 7,239 yards. Thick rough will play a major role at another extremely tough course on the PGA Tour. Long, straight hitting will be rewarded even more than usual. The course will be played as a par 70 for the first time after two par fives have been turned into par fours.
Formally known as the Bay Hill invitational, the Arnold Palmer Invitational returns at Bay Hill with Rod Pampling looking to defend his title. Kenny Perry also feels this is his defence, after winning in 2005 and being unable to compete last year due to a knee injury.
The strong British contingent includes Paul Casey, Luke Donald, and Greg Owen who finished second last year. Tiger Woods makes his annual appearance; he won the event four times between 2000 and 2003. Jim Furyk has withdrawn due to a sore wrist.
CONTENDERS: Tiger Woods, Vijay Singh, Phil Mickelson
