GolfWRX is live this week from the 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge (par 72, 7,419 yards) in Orlando, Florida. The course, known as “Arnie’s Place,” was owned by golfing legend Arnold Palmer who passed away on September 25, 2016 at the age of 87.
In lieu of The King’s absence, birdies and bogeys will certainly take a back seat this week as family, friends, players and fans pay their respects to the golfing legend.
Notable players in the field include defending champion and world No. 2-ranked Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, Hideki Matsuyama, Henrik Stenson, Rickie Fowler, Billy Horschel, Paul Casey, Ernie Els, Zach Johnson, Louis Oosthuizen, Justin Rose, Charl Schwartzel, Vijay Singh, Bubba Watson, Danny Willet and John Daly, who’s making his first appearance since 2006.
