The 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard

post #1 of 313
Thread Starter 

Fortunate that I have two PGA events nearby in the course of two consecutive weeks. I'll be going out to Bayhill on Tuesday for the practice rounds. Went last year and really enjoyed myself out there - probably spent 10-12 hours. I was one of the last to leave the course - and guess who was still out there alone on the course (with his caddy). Vijay -I went crazy with my telephoto lens DLR.

 

Anyway, this coming week's event should be bring out a huge crowd w/ Lefty, TW, Graeme, Westwood, Snedeker, Furyk, Bradley, Poulter, Simpson, Watson, Watney, Sergio, Mahan, among the names:

I am super excited for this tournament. One of my favorites on tour. I'm picking Tiger to win, though I think Mahan is due.

Bayhill is old school - in the residential setting of homes of the 1960s architecture.  Even Arnie's Lodge feels like you've stepped back several decades.

One of my favorite tournaments.

Looks like another great showing. Should hopefully be an epic tourney. Will be good to see Sned back in action, hopefully his injury time out hadn't effected him too much.

A TW vs Lefty showdown on Sunday would be good for me.

I think it's kind of ridiculous that Rory has skipped Arnie's tournament twice now.

Pulling for my man TW as always... ever since I was a little kid!

I'm also pulling for David Toms. But that shouldn't be a surprise.

Why aren't Matt Kuchar, Luke Donald, Louis Oosthiehoweveryouspellit, and Adam Scott getting crucified for not kissing the "ring"?

Spent about 10 hrs today out at Bay Hill. Good time. Beautiful warm weather, no rain as forecasted.   Watched a guy named James Sieckmann who I'm assuming is related to the old pro Tom Sieckmann, give a lot of personalized short game coaching to Charlie Wie, Cameron Tringale, and a few others. It was cool to get right up and close and listen to their discussion/thinking on a variety of shots around the green.   Saw Sean Foley, David Leadbetter, Rick Smith, and several other coaching gurus out there (Mike Shannon, putting guru).   Will try to find time to post some pictures of the players, holes, videos of swings in a day or so.

 

Didn't see the Tiger or Phil.

Probably it would have to do with the fact that maybe 8% of the total people watching the event would want to see them play. Where as 35-40% would want to see Rory play the fact that it is Arnie's tourney just makes it more of a media frenzy.
