Since moving from Orlando to North Carolina over two years ago, I really miss going to the Bay Hill Invitational and Spring Training baseball. Other than that, you can keep it.

How are they waiting to hear from Els, if earlier in the article it says he is in?

I think it means that they are waiting for confirmation that he will play. He qualified to enter the tournament but (I think) he and all the others have to confirm.

Boy, I hope Daly has got his act together and makes a good showing. Haven't read anything about him in a month or so, so hopefully he has been laying low and practicing.

As far as Daly is concerned, he doesn't have to play well to contribute to the tournament. If he makes a 12 on one hole like he did on #6 one year, he will have contributed greatly to the entertainment value of the tournament. Of course, it would be better for him if he did this in the 3rd round after making the cut, as he would at least get something for his pains.

Tiger always plays in this tournament, but I wonder if he might skip it this year. He's got a 4 tournament win streak in PGA events, and even though he has won at Bay Hill 4 times, he has not won there in 4 years. He didn't play at Riviera last years for the first time during a 7 tournament win streak, where he had never won and didn't play this year.

On the other hand, it won't look good if he skips Arnie's tournament. Of course, he is playing perhaps better this year than even last year at this time.

BTW, they originally had me in Christmas, then in Hollywood, now in Palm Bay? At least put me somewhere in my county, Topix guys.

I think it has to do with your zip code, because I didn't put in where I lived and it came up. Weird.
I hope Tiger doesn't play because he runs away with most every tournament and a lot of viewers/spectators forget about the other players.
Of course, I'm an Arnie/Jack fan myself. Guess that means over the hill and twice as dusty....

...And most of us would invite you to stay in Kernerburg or whatever it is. You can keep it.
