Re: 2014 PGA Arnold Palmer Invitational Odds: Tiger Woods Favored

Tour heads to Bay Hill
By Sportsbook.ag

Tournament: Arnold Palmer Invitational
Date: Mar. 20-23, 2014
Venue: Bay Hill Club and Lodge
Location: Bay Hill, Florida
2013 Winner: Tiger Woods

The PGA Tour finishes up its Florida swing when the golfers head to Bay Hill for the Arnold Palmer Invitational this weekend. This tourney is one of five on tour that is by invitation only and will boast a smaller field (120 golfers) than the usual full field (156). The event has been dominated by Tiger Woods since 2000, as he has won the tournament in eight of the past 14 years, including the previous two, where he recorded a 13-under par each time. His recent back issues will put his ability to repeat in question this week at the Par-72, 7,381-yard course.

Let’s take a look at a few golfers who could take the crown away from him.

Golfers to Watch

Justin Rose (12/1):
Rose looked strong this past week at the Valspar Championship, finishing in eighth place, but faltering on Sunday with a 3-over par. He has been stellar at this tournament over the past three years, with a runner-up performance last year and a third-place finish back in 2011. Rose should represent your largest wager of the weekend in terms of picking one golfer to earn a victory.
   
Bubba Watson (12/1): Watson has been tearing it up this season and has placed in the top-10 in five of the seven events he has played in, including a win at the Northern Trust Open and runner-up performances in the Cadillac Championship and Waste Management Phoenix Open. As usual, Watson has been the longest player off the tee this season (318.6 yards per), while also ranking sixth on Tour in putts per hole (1.716) and 20th in greens hit in regulation (70.8%).

Patrick Reed (30/1): Reed has hit the ground running in the PGA and is quickly making a name for himself with three victories over his past 14 tournaments. He joined the likes of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Rory McIlroy and Sergio Garcia as the only players to win at least three times before their 24th birthday, and is playing with all the confidence in the world. Another victory here would instantly put Reed as a contender each and every week, so get him now before his price tag becomes too steep.

Chesson Hadley (95/1): Hadley quietly earned his first PGA Tour win at the Puerto Rico Open while most of the big names were playing in the Cadillac Championship. He followed up the victory with a top-15 finish last week at the Valspar Championship and seems to be improving each and every week. Hadley is a risky pick at Bay Hill, but his three top-10 performances in 12 events this year are no fluke, and represents good value as a darkhorse pick this weekend.

Re: 2014 PGA Arnold Palmer Invitational Odds: Tiger Woods Favored

Arnold Palmer Invitational Preview and Picks
Matt Fargo

The PGA Tour continues the Florida swing with a trip to Bay Hill Club and Lodge in Orlando for the Arnold Palmer Invitational. This is a big event with a lot of big names and this will be the final stocked field until the Masters in three weeks. The headliner was Tiger Woods but he had to withdraw due to his bad back. Last year he picked up his eighth victory at Bay Hill so it is safe to say the rest of the field isn't overly upset that he is not playing this week.

Bay Hill's last significant upgrade came 22 years ago, when four holes were changed but five years ago, it was a full overhaul. Despite being raised from a par 70 to a par 72, the added yardage increased the cumulative scoring average as Bay Hill was third highest in difficulty of all par 72 non-majors four years ago and second highest in difficulty in 2011. in 2012, it was third in difficulty once again and last year it was third-highest among 18 par 72's in non-majors.

Bay Hill played as a par 70 of over 7,100 yards for three straight years from 2007-2009. It was the most difficult track of any non-major course in 2009, playing at +2.19 strokes to par. Four years ago, it played at +0.89 strokes over par, three years ago, it played +1.20 strokes over par, two years ago, it was +1.17 strokes over par and last year it was +0.928 strokes over par. In five of the last nine years, Bay Hill has played to at least one shot over par and it has been ranked 11th or higher in difficulty 10 times since 2000.

With Woods out, Adam Scott and Justin Rose share the favorite tag at +1,200. Scott is playing here for the first time since 2009 which is not ideal while Rose finished solo second last year to Woods after finishing T3 in 2011. With a loaded field and with no Tiger in the mix, there is no value in either of these short prices as it is now a pretty wide open tournament.

Graeme McDowell (+1,800) is playing as good an anyone right now with the exception that he has not won since the Heritage last year. That was his last top ten finish last season but he already has five top tens in seven starts this season. This includes a T9 at the Cadillac in his last start two weeks ago. He finished T45 here a year ago but prior to that it was a solo second in 2012.

We are getting a great price with Henrik Stenson (+2,600). While he hasn't performed like his incredible season from last year, he is just getting warmed up and this could be the place for him to get his first win of the season. He is coming off his best finish of the season with a T16 at the Cadillac and he is trending the right way at Bay Hill, going from T52 in 2010 to T47 in 2011 to T15 in 2012 to T8 last year.

Harris English (+3,000) has been as consistent as anyone on tour. He has not missed a cut in 11 medal play starts and five of those resulted in top tens. This includes a victory at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba back in November. His track record at Bay Hill is not good as he missed the cut in his debut in 2012 while finishing T57 last year. He is a different player now and that makes a huge difference.

We used Gary Woodland (+4,000) last week and he was right in the mix at the Valspar but had to settle for a T8 as he improved by one shot each day. He still leads the tour in total driving and with his distance, he can dominate the par fives here which is a recipe for success. He finished T27 at Bay Hill a year ago but that came after a missed cut in Tampa Bay so his confidence is at a high.

We will use Pat Perez (+10,000) as a big longshot this week after George McNeill was painfully close last week. The former hothead Perez has had a great year thus far with a T2, solo 11th and a T7 in three consecutive starts in January and February. He made his first start in a month last week and was a respectable T44 at the Valspar. His T4 finish here in 2009 was his best.
