The Arnold Palmer Invitational was founded in 1979, taking the place of the Florida Citrus Open Invitational. The API is just one of five tournaments with invitational status on the PGA Tour, joining the Memorial, RBC Heritage, Colonial and Quicken Loans National. The winner gets a three-year tour exemption, one year more than a normal tour victory. The tournament is played at Bay Hill Club and Lodge, which was designed by Dick Wilson and owned by Arnold Palmer. This is the event's first year since its namesake passed. Tiger Woods has won the tournament eight times; Jason Day is the defending champion.
