2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational
Expert Picks and Tournament Preview

Arnold palmer Invitational LogoPlaying at the Arnold Palmer Invitation is a bit of a privilege given that only 120 PGA Tour golfers are invited. Even with 120 players you are looking at a pretty elite field of PGA Tour golfers this week. Many are using the API tournament for a tune up for next week’s WGC Dell Match Play tournament before taking a week off before The Masters.

Played at the Bay Hill Club course in Orlando, it is a favorite of players and for most an honor to come and play at Arnie’s tournament. You will get a big field of top players and for fantasy golf fans you can make a solid lineup using top players at lower costs than you normally would pay for them.
