I mention all of this because this week's tournament is Palmer's eponymous invitational at his Bay Hill home, where we're be looking for a few players to do their best Arnie impersonation and win some matchups.

Woods' first appearance at Bay Hill since 2013 generated record crowds and a massive spike in TV ratings.

Woods has participated in three PGS Tour events this year, Sports Illustrated noted, the most recent being the World Golf Championship-Mexico Championship, where he tied for 10th place.

Corey Conners is playing this week on the strength of his early season success.

Then he won the Puerto Rico Open to become the third rookie with a victory so far this season, after Cameron Champ (Sanderson Farms Championship) and Adam Long (Desert Classic).

Thunderbolt-based USB4: backward compatible, speed gains and more
This will be fixed with USB 4 .0, which will use one standard connector and bring the multiple connectivity standards together. So your new laptop or desktop PC might not feature a Thunderbolt 3 port after all, unless it's a premium model.


Woods is an eight-time victor at Bay Hill. Woods tied for 11th at The Players in 2018. Eight time champion Tiger Woods is back at Bay Hill after taking last week off, and not only has he won this event eight times during his career, he managed to shoot 10-under a year ago and T-5th.

"I'd like to send my regrets to the Palmer family and the Orlando fans", wrote Woods.

Other big names in the field this week include the return the Justin Rose, and other recent Arnold Palmer Invitational champions such as Jason Day and Marc Leishman. Woods has only four events to play before the Masters - The Players, the Valspar Championship, the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play and the Valero Texas Open.

He says he hopes to be ready the following week for The Players Championship.
