Arnold Palmer passed away last September, but his legacy will last forever and his name will always be linked to Bay Hill Club and Lodge and the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard. This year’s tournament gets underway March 16-19, 2017. The Golf Channel and NBC will be on hand to televise the event live.
Bay Hill Club and Lodge measures 7,419 yards and plays to a par 72. The course was designed by Dick Wilson in 1961. Palmer played the course, fell in love with it and proclaimed it the “best course in Florida.” He loved it so much, he purchased the layout in 1965 and the rest is history. The PGA Tour arrived in 1979 when the old Florida Citrus Open relocated across town to “Arnie’s Place.”
The Arnold Palmer Invitational is one of five tournaments given “invitational status” on the PGA Tour and consequently, the betting field is reduced to 120 players instead of the normal 156.
The field this season will be one of the strongest of the year, headlined by defending champion Adam Scott and eight-time winner Tiger Woods. Others scheduled to compete include Henrik Stenson, Sergio Garcia, Patrick Reed, Phil Mickelson, Rickie Fowler and Rory McIlroy.
The betting field at this week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard has once again attracted some star players, but not as many as usual. Tiger Woods has basically retired, Adam Scott is absent, World No. 1 Dustin Johnson isn’t playing, fan favorite Phil Mickelson and prodigee Jon Rahm did not make the trip to Orlando. Not to mention Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth, they are skipping it too. Mr. Palmer died recently and I would have thought that more stars would show up and play. Continue...

The Arnold Palmer Invitational was founded in 1979 to replace Florida Citrus Open Invitational. The Invitational has gone through many different names over the years, most of them including " Bay Hill," the name of the club and lodge which hosts the tournament. Arnold Palmer has owned Bay Hill since 1976. This is a huge event with a lot of big names and will be the final stocked field until the Masters in two weeks. Tiger Woods has historically done very well at this PGA event, winning a stunning six times.
Tiger woods will play as a tune-up for the Master’s which starts two weeks after Bay Hill. Tiger would be competing for his seventh Bay Hill victory. Other Floridians who will most likely compete include Zach Johnson, formerly a native of Iowa, but now maintains a home in the area. Zach is currently in the race for the FedEx Cup points in 2012.
Past champions of the event reads like a who's who of golf - Ernie Els (1998), Phil Mickelson (1997), Ben Crenshaw ('93), Fred Couples ('92), Tom Kite ('89), Payne Stewart ('87) and Fuzzy Zoeller ('85) to name a few. These great men of golf are pictured on a wall of fame near the pro shop, which is considered one of the top 100 in the country, according to Golf Shop Operations.
Marc Leishman has booked an 11th-hour Masters berth with a one-shot victory at the US PGA Tour's Arnold Palmer Invitational in Florida.
Leishman had to stare down a 4-foot par putt on the final hole to post a three-under-par 69 for a 72-hole aggregate of 11-under 277 and a one-stroke victory at Bay Hill over Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman. Leishman’s par secured his come-from-behind win, his second PGA Tour victory, and qualified him for the Masters in April.
He entered the week outside the world's top 50 but now grabs an automatic exemption into the year's first major at Augusta National thanks to his first US PGA Tour title since 2012.
Leishman has some past form at Augusta National, having shared fourth place when countryman Adam Scott won in 2013 before missing the cut a year later.
Live golf betting is an increasingly popular service that is being offered by many online bookmakers. Basically, it allows you to place bets while play is ongoing, with the odds changing to reflect events as they unfold, and you can place bets right up to the end of the tournament.
With traditional fixed odds betting, you can only place bets before and after play commences each day, so if you miss your window, you have to wait until the next break in play before you can place another bet. Continue
