Who is our golf form expert Barry Plummer tipping for glory at Bay Hill?
After an emotional week at the Concession the PGA Tour moves up the road to the King’s place for a tournament that often delivers in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Before we get to my betting tips, here’s everything you need to know…
Arnold Palmer Invitational: The details
Venue: Bay Hill Club & Lodge, Florida, USA
Date: March 4-7, 2021
Course stats: Par 72, 7454 yards.
Course summary: This iconic venue is a traditionally tough parkland test, requiring accurate ball striking and solid putting. The winning score was just 4-under-par last year, with the course boasting many defences including lots of water and heavy bunkering. Strong play from tee to green is important here with many dogleg holes to navigate, and if the wind blows just finding the large Bermuda greens will be an achievement, while long par 3s and reachable par 5s are sure to inject drama.
Purse: $9.3 million
Defending champion: Tyrrell Hatton (-4)
