Tour Stars Tee It Up At Arnie’s Place



The PGA Tour returns with heavy hearts to the Arnold Palmer Invitational this week, the first rendition since the passing of the namesake. Some of the biggest stars in the sport will be on hand, including four of the top five in the Official World Golf Rankings and 29 of the top 50. Early-round coverage of some of those big names can be seen exclusively on PGA TOUR LIVE before the televised coverage begins on Golf Channel.

The featured groups on Thursday and Friday are headlined by 2016 API champion Jason Day. Day is making only his fifth start of the season and his first since the Genesis Open. You can the entirety of his first round on PGA TOUR LIVE Thursday morning.

Day will be flanked in Thursday’s coverage by household names such as Justin Rose, Henrik Stenson, Hideki Matsuyama, Bubba Watson and Martin Kaymer. There is no shortage of star power on Friday, either. Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Graeme McDowell, Brandt Snedeker, Sam Saunders and Adam Hadwin make up the featured groups in the second round.
