Arnold Palmer Invitational Field

A total of 27 of the top 30 and 44 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Ranking are in the field this week. That includes World No. 1 Jon Rahm, No. 2 and 2022 API winner Scottie Scheffler and No. 3 and 2018 champion Rory McIlroy, the last of whom has finished T-13 or better in seven of his eight starts at Bay Hill and Arnie's event.

Arnold Palmer Invitational Picks & Predictions

Rory McIlroy won this event at Bay Hill in 2018. His last five starts in Arnie's event read T-13, T-10, T-5, T-6, Win and T-4. Last year he shot a final-round 76 to fall to T-13 after being in position to win going into Sunday.

Over his last 36 rounds on courses with difficult scoring conditions like Bay Hill, McIlroy ranks No. 1 in Strokes Gained: Total and Tee-to-Green. He's also top 5 in Approach, Ball Striking and Off-the-Tee (per stats at Fantasy National).

Rory's current form and course history fit Bay Hill to a tee. Despite lower odds to win in a loaded field, McIlroy is a player to count on as a major win contender this week.
