The King, Arnold Palmer, died last year, but his tournament marches on and always attracts a world class betting field. The 53rd annual Arnold Palmer Invitational gets started March 15-18, 2018. The tournament is one of five Invitationals on the PGA Tour with a limited field of 120 players.
The betting field will be stacked with world class players and we might even see Tiger Woods, who has won the event a record eight times. Henrik Stenson, Adam Scott, Jason Day and Justin Rose all are scheduled to compete.
Last year Marc Leishman battled gusty winds to hold off Charley Hoffman and Kevin Kisner to claim his second PGA Tour title. The Aussie made two crucial par saves on the final two holes to secure the win.
Past champions in Orlando include Arnold Palmer himself in 1971, Lee Trevino, Tom Kite, the late Payne Stewart, Fred Couples, Phil Mickelson, Tiger Woods and Jason Day.

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
