FIT FOR A KING

February 28, 2023

EVENT: Arnold Palmer Invitational (Thurs-Sun)

WHY WE’LL WATCH: A stacked field (44 of the world’s top 50), nostalgia for The King and a tough, wind-swept course loaded with H20.

COURSE INFO: Bay Hill is a beast. Tyrrell Hatton won at 4-under‍ in 2020, and Scottie Scheffler beat out Hatton and Billy Horschel last year by posting 5-under. With its long par-3s and reachable 5s, Bay Hill requires the most 200+ yard approach shots on tour.

FAVES: Jalapeño-hot Jon Rahm (+650) is ahead of Scheffler (+900) and Rory McIlroy (+900), the 2018 winner. Rahm has competed in Arnie’s event only once, tying for 17th last year.

BET TO CONSIDER: McIlroy Top 10 (+115): His odds are low because he always plays well at Bay Hill. In eight starts, Rors has seven top-15s.
