Tiger's expected to win now

NBC Sports reported its third-round TV viewing figures on the Golf Channel were up 181% on the same day past year, while the final round drew a 5.11 overnight rating - the highest audience outside the majors since the 2013 Players Championship, won by Woods.

"We all know what kind of player he is and what kind of player he can be when he's healthy", he started.

Matt Every returns to the site of his two PGA TOUR titles as he preps for this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The 42-year-old has, after all, been nearly back to his brilliant best at times in his last two events, finishing 12th
in the Honda Classic then
ending up just a shot behind victor Paul Casey in the
Valspar Championship, also in Florida, last weekend. FedExCup leader: Justin Thomas.

Woods' impressive record in the Arnold Palmer Invitational and his profile will bring high expectations and plenty of excitement, but until he puts together an impressive stretch of results or actually gets a win, some caution is in order. Find out who you should be backing, and how to watch as much of the golf as possible.

Day leads the US Tour for strokes gained in putting, while he ranks sixth for average driving distance (315.4 yards) and in the top 25 for driving accuracy. Just needs to have a good week off the tee and hole a few more birdie putts to give himself the best chance. He won in 2013 by two shots over Justin Rose, a victory that returned him to No. 1 in the world.

Tommy Fleetwood: Fleetwood has two top 10s and a victory in 2018 already, and finished T10 in his debut here past year.

The purse has been increased slightly from past year, with a total of $8.9 million up for grabs. Finished 4th here in his first appearance here past year.

Now it's time for him to think about winning. Was T12 here previous year, and ranks 1st for SG Tee to Green and 6th for SG: Approach to the green. "He's got to deal with all those feelings again". That stems from his runner-up finish last week at Innisbrook, where he was never more than three shots behind in the final round and had a long birdie putt at the end to force a playoff. What might be more eerie is walking off the 18th green on Sunday without seeing Palmer. Despite a MC a year ago, had four top 10 finishes in a row prior to that.

"You look forward to playing the best in the world and going up against guys head-to-head", Fowler said.

Rory McIlroy: After his T3-2nd start in Abu Dhabi and Dubai, he's had a hard start to his PGA Tour season, going MC-T20-T59-MC and clearly struggling on the greens. But in it goes, dropping into the cup on the ball's last roll for a spectacular two.
