Tiger’s next target is Bay Hill
Tiger Woods has confirmed he’ll make next week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational his final tune-up for the Masters.
Tiger Woods has confirmed that he will make next week’s Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club and Lodge his final tune-up for the Masters from April 7-10.
Woods, still seeking a title since his Australian Masters win in 2009, will be looking to break his drought on what he has said is one of his all-time favourite courses.
And the fact that he has won six times at the Palmer-owned Bay Hill Club, four of them in succession from 2000, certainly underlines this assertion.
“I’ve always loved playing there,” Woods said recently. “It’s just so cool. It’s as good as it gets.”
The long-time former World No 1, who has slipped back to No 5 in the latest rankings as he struggles with his game while undergoing another swing change, posted his first top-10 finish in a PGA Tour event since June in last week’s WGC Cadillac Championship at Doral where he tied for 10th.
He also played some solid sub-par golf at the Tavistock Cup earliest this week and might well go into his latest visit to Bay Hill with his confidence levels higher than they have been in a while.
