It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful week in Orlando, FL for the Arnold Palmer Invitational. For a quick preview of the tournament click here http://dfsdatalytics.net/2019-arnold-palmer-invitational-first-look/. The tournament gets under way at 6:45 AM Eastern time so be sure to get those lineups set. Let’s take a look at some picks for the week.
Rory McIlroy ($11,400) – Rory is going to be highly owned but I think he’s good chalk this week. McIlrory is in great form coming off of 4 straight Top 5 finished to start the year. In his last 5 events Rory has averaged 2.1 SG:App, 4.8 SG:OTT, 2.7 Good Drives Gained, 5.2 GIR’s and 3.1 Birdies Gained. His preferred putting surface is fast Bermuda greens which is what he’ll get at Bay Hill this week. He won’t gain 10 strokes on the greens like he did last year but I expect him to dominate the Par 5’s and score well.
*I also really like Justin Rose but his price doesn’t allow playing both him and Rory. I suggest picking your favorite of the 2 and starting from there this week. Rory gets the slight edge for me because he’s been playing more.*
