GolfWRX is live from Bay Hill Club & Lodge (par 72; 7,419 yards) in Orlando, Florida for the 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational. The tournament, in the namesake of the late Arnold Palmer, has been played at Bay Hill aka "Arnie's Place" since 1979. Tiger Woods, who's in the field this week, has won eight of those events -- the last time Woods played in the event was in 2013, where he picked up his eighth victory at Bay Hill.

Joining Woods in the field this week are notables Justin Rose, Jason Day, Rory McIlroy, honorary co-host Rickie Fowler, Adam Scott, Bubba Watson, and Hideki Matsuyama, who's back from being sidelined with wrist problems.

Last year, Marc Leishman shot a final-round 69 to beat out Kevin Kisner and Charley Hoffman by one stroke to capture the tournament title.

Check out our photos from this week at Bay Hill below!

Anyone know the length on Tigers 2 UDI? Picture of his bag in the Tuesday part 2 pics it looks almost the same length as his 3 or 4 iron that are right beside it.  Would have thought it would be noticeably longer.

Since he seems to be favoring it as a tee club (at least last week) I wonder if he's considered putting a graphite shaft in there to get some more yardage.  Although he's swinging at 180mph, so not sure if thats truly necessary...

Knowing tiger, I'm sure he wouldn't have it in the bag if he didn't trust in it. I doubt the tinkering is still going on. Why would he change? Lasers all day.
