Arnold Palmer Bay Hill Invitational

Bay Hill Country Club

Starting this Thursday and lasting until Sunday is the prestigious Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Country Club in Orlando, Florida. It is one of the stronger field events of the year on the PGA Tour and is always an exciting event to watch. Tiger Woods is the defending champion but this will be the first time in his career he is missing the event because of his scheduled comeback at the Masters in 2 weeks. IMG has scheduled trips to go up there and watch the world’s best play on Thursday and Friday. I personally feel that anytime you are able to attend such a high caliber event, you should seize the opportunity. You can see how the pros play and manage their way around the brutal course setups and also learn a thing or two from their routines or swings. This week, there are two former Pendleton students who have been invited to play in the field. The 2009 US Amateur Champion ,Ben An, and UCLA sophomore standout Gregor Main will be competing against the pros as amateurs. Ben received a sponsor exemption via his victory at the US Am, and Gregor received an invite from his victory at the prestigious Southern Amateur event in the summer. With Tiger missing from the field, the doors have opened for many players to shine and have a chance to earn one of the final spots in the Masters in 2 weeks.
