GolfWRX is live from the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Fla. The ever-changing 7,419-yard, par-72 layout will play host to a strong field for its 36th edition of the event.

Defending champion Tiger Woods has been plagued by injuries in 2014, but he returns to Bay Hill chasing an all-time record ninth professional win at a single tournament, which would break a tie with Sam Snead (Greater Greensboro Open) and himself (WGC-Bridgestone Invitational). In last year’s event, Woods held off Rickie Fowler and Justin Rose in a Monday finish that never got closer than a two-stroke deficit for his pursuers.

In order to make history and defend his title, Woods will have to stay back spasm-free and beat a strong field consisting of 10 other golfers in the top 20 in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Notable names include Adam Scott (No. 2 in the OWGR), Henrik Stenson (No. 3 in the OWGR) and Patrick Reed, who sits in the No. 3 position in the FedEx Cup standings coming off his win at the WGC Cadillac Championship. Reed put himself under a microscope for the near future with a bold post-round interview where he proclaimed he is a top-5 golfer in the world  Jason Day, the No. 4-ranked golfer in the OWGR, will be sidelined for the second straight tournament with a thumb injury.

    • Totally agree. Now that he made those comments, he is going to be expected to be in contention to win more tournaments, and if/when he doesn’t live up to that, I think it will come back to bite him.
