Arnold Palmer Invitational Breakdown

Jason Day looks to defend his title this week at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. The par 72 course totaling 7,353 yards requires above average iron play for golfers to be successful. Key statistics this week include: Tee to Green, Approach, Around the Green, and Birdie or Better rankings. The API is typically one of the lowest scoring tournaments of the Tour’s Florida Swing. Four out of the top five golfers in the world will be playing the event and I expect each of these top players to put up low numbers this week.
