The field at this year’s Arnold Palmer Invitational in Orlando, Florida will have a minor hurdle for one of the richest purses on the PGA Tour after Tiger Wood’s recall earlier this week with the neck tribe.
Think the Bay Hill Club & Lodge, the 2019 release of Palmer’s annual tournament has a total purse of $ 9.1 million and a winner’s share of $ 1.64 million, according to the Golf Channel. The prize is ranked as one of the year’s most lucrative, outside of the golf’s four major events.
Woods, who has won a record eight times in Bay Hill, was expected to lead a field that included defense champion Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and several other top players. However, Woods had to retire before the year’s event, referring to a neck tribe.
“Unfortunately, due to a neck strain that I have had for a few weeks, I have to withdraw from the API” Woods wrote on Twitter “I have received treatment but it has not improved enough to play. part is good and i have no long-term worries and i hope to be ready for the players. “
Woods has racked up $ 7.6 million in career income at the event. He is expected to return to the Players Championship ̵
1; golf’s first major tournament in 2019 – when it starts next Thursday.
McIlroy won just over $ 1.6 million as a champion for last year’s event.
