4 players to watch at the Arnold Palmer Invitational

Paul Casey landed his first PGA Tour title for nine years on Sunday

"Sometimes I don't play it well, but I know how to play it".

McIlroy finished tied-fourth in last year's event and returns to Bay Hill looking to bounce back from last week's missed cut on the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook.

The 42-year-old has, after all, been nearly back to his brilliant best at times in his last two events, finishing 12th
in the Honda Classic then
ending up just a shot behind victor Paul Casey in the
Valspar Championship, also in Florida, last weekend.

NBC Sports reported its third-round TV viewing figures on the Golf Channel were up 181% on the same day past year, while the final round drew a 5.11 overnight rating - the highest audience outside the majors since the 2013 Players Championship, won by Woods.

Former world No.1 Day has been placed in the marquee group alongside 14-time major victor Woods and Japanese star Hideki Matsuyama for the first two rounds at Florida's famed Bay Hill course.

On the eve of the Bay Hill tournament Woods was named as United States of America captain for the next Presidents Cup, a role usually reserved for veterans at the end of their career.

He's proven himself to be physically fit to handle the grind.

"Each and every week I've learned from what I've done and, more importantly, I'm learning my body", he added
in a pre-tournament press conference. My recovery, these are all things that are new.

"Now I don't feel like I'm swinging as hard, but still producing good club speed".

"If I knew I'd tell you". "And then I moved here in '96 and he invited me over here to play in his Monday shoot-out and I did and I didn't like it very much because he took my money".

"And so there's a process and an evolution to it and it's been quick, but still I have to say just to enjoy all of this, because at one point that wasn't even a thought. I didn't ever even think about playing out here".

Down to 13th in the world after being leapfrogged by victor Paul Casey following his missed cut last week, the Co Down man is working with coach Michael Bannon to sort out a timing issue with his swing. "I've still got to do the work". The gambling public seems to be placing their bets on the 14-time major-winner. "I think it's clear that people are really interested to see how the Phils [Mickelson], how the Tigers, how they are going to perform against these great young players". Now he's the odds-on favorite to win Arnold Palmer's tournament this week at Bay Hill, where he has won eight times.

For both players, it's getting close to "Last Chance Saloon" in their bids to secure Masters spots and give Sandy Lyle some company at Augusta on the 30th anniversary of him becoming the first British player to claim a Green Jacket.
