Sport 2018 Arnold Palmer Invitational tee times, viewer's guide
For those of you wondering where Johnny Miller is, don't fret, he'll be back soon
<p>It was like old times on Saturday as golf fans flocked to their couches to watch weekend coverage of Tiger Woods. But as much as the 14-time major champ provided flashbacks of his old form, there was something missing. Someone, to be exact.</p>Johnny Miller was not in the 18th tower for NBC Sports, his chair alongside Dan Hicks being filled instead by Gary Koch. So there was no "chunk-and-run" talk for Woods' chip in on No. 9 and no talk about "green-light specials" as Tiger attacked Innisbrook's par 5s. Too bad.
The PGA Tour makes its second-to-last stop of the season in Florida this week for the Arnold Palmer Invitational, held at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando. Tiger Woods is back in action for a second straight week, making his first start at Bay Hill since 2013, when he won the event for a remarkable eighth time. The combination of that past history and a strong showing at the Valspar Championship has made.
To do it, he'll have to take down one of the stronger fields this season, featuring 10 of the top 20 players in the world, including fellow countrymen Jason Day and Marc Leishman, the last two winners at Bay Hill. It's difficult to think of either player as a "darkhorse", but with all the attention on Woods, the Aussie duo cannot be ignored this week. In five starts this year, Day has a victory at Torrey Pines, a T-2 at Pebble Beach and a pair T-11s at the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges and the WGC-HSBC Champions. As for Leishman, he's made seven of his eight cuts, including a solo second at the CJ Cup @ Nine Bridges and a T-8 at Torrey Pines.
