Viewer’s guide: 2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational tee times, TV schedule and purse

March 4, 2020

The PGA Tour’s Florida Swing heats up this week with the 2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. You can find a full list of Arnold Palmer Invitational tee times for the first and second rounds at the bottom of this post, along with a TV schedule for the tournament.

Tiger Woods may have chose to skip Bay Hill due to a stiff back, but pretty much every other big-name golfer is in the field this week. That includes World No. 1 Rory McIlroy. McIlroy won the 2018 API and finished T6 last year. He’ll tee off at 7:54 a.m. ET on Thursday alongside defending champion Francesco Molinari and Justin Rose.

Former World No. 1 Brooks Koepka is in town, too, and hungry to re-take the top position from McIlroy. He’ll be able to keep a close eye on Rory after he tees off in the next group at 8:06 a.m. ET with two Australian stars: Adam Scott and Jason Day. Scott has risen all the way back to No. 7 in the OWGR thanks to a recent spate of great play.

Perhaps most intriguing of all the competitors will be Patrick Reed. Reed is fresh off one of the biggest victories of his career at the WGC-Mexico Championship. But the controversy surrounding his controversial rules violation at the Hero World Challenge in December is still following him around, and once again will be a major talking point this week in Orlando. Reed will get his tournament started at 12:56 p.m. ET in the first round in a star-studded grouping that features Phil Mickelson and Bryson DeChambeau.
