Day set to defend
Defending champion Jason Day’s season is off to a slow start, with one top-10 in four starts in 2017. It the same story a season ago when he found his game at Bay Hill. Day did not have a single top-10 finish in four starts entering the 2016 API but led wire to wire to win. He followed it up a week later with a victory at World Match Play Championship.
“I think last year you guys were asking me the same thing right around this time,” Day said. “It would be nice to be able to get on a roll like that.”But Day also realizes win last year at Bay Hill was a singular event and the end of an era, given Palmer’s Sept. 25 passing.
“To be able to win last year and have that celebratory drink with him and being the last person to be able to do that is a special honor,” Day said.
Changes at API
Palmer was a man of the people and loved the galleries that followed him.This year, fans will have a chance to get closer to the action, with general seating available around seven greens.“It’s about the fans and they should be having a front-row, first-class experience,” API director Marci Doyle said. The Palmer Patio will move from the 18th to 14th hole, offering views of five shots by players. Palmer’s golf cart will sit at the 16th hole, his favorite viewing spot tournament week.On Sunday, the winner will receive a red cardigan sweater, like those Palmer loved to wear, rather than the blue blazer awarded previous Bay Hill champions.
