Blog: March 19, Bay Hill

March 19th, 2014 by Samantha Chopra

This week we are at one of my favourite tournament’s of the year, the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by MasterCard at Bay Hill Club & Lodge.

I am so excited to play here as it is in Orlando so I can stay at home with my family and enjoy the camaraderie of the members at Bay Hill.

Mr Palmer and the great guys I get to play with each day make this such a special tournament.

I especially love playing the shoot out which makes this game what it truly should be – competitive, pure, challenging, respectful and fun amongst sincere enthusiasts of this the greatest game in the world.

It has been a tough start to the season so far but it has also been a case of near misses.

Last week in Puerto Rico I really felt I was there but a couple of bad holes ruined my chances.

As ever short game will be the key. Never underestimate it.

Seve was the greatest exponent. He was an imaginative and gutsy player who ‘felt’ shots – around the green and on the green.

Bay Hill will be one of those courses that demands a solid short game especially as the green will be super fast.

I will be looking to roll home plenty of putts and achieve a breakthrough performance to ignite my season!
