My 5 favorite things about Bay Hill + Arnold Palmer Invitational

So I was lucky enough to make it down to Orlando to see the Arnold Palmer Invitational. First time there. It was a total blast. Here are 5 things I liked:

1. The organization was first rate. It was so easy to make it to and back from the tourney. No hassles. Parking was free, the shuttle buses came nonstop, and there was hardly any traffic. Took maybe 15 minutes to make it to the course from downtown Orlando.

2. Seeing Arnold Palmer in person for the first time. Met Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino before, so getting a chance to see Mr. Palmer was great.

3. $1 water, drinks, and food sold by rich homeowners on the course! Sure beats the $3 water and $5 plus food sold by the PGA. Thanks, rich homeowners!

4. Bay Hill. Course is beautiful. Water makes the course very interesting, especially down the stretch. Sean O’Hair will attest.

5. Mastercard grandstand tent. It had everything. A/C, HDTV, cash bar, putting green, virtual golf range, free popcorn, and free photos of you on a Golf Digest cover. I could have watched the entire tournament from there if they had seats!
