I heard someone talk about the "star-studded" field at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational, and I won't doubt that, with both Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson doing their best Punxsutawney Phil impression.
The strange thing about it - Tiger, Phil and Jim Furyk are the only three from the top-10 in the Official World Golf Rankings, with even Steve Stricker taking the week off.
I was all excited to look up the players and see the likes of Adam Scott and Ernie Els competing against El Tigre for the crown, but all these guys must have a St. Patrick's Day pool party or something over the weekend.

Anyway, with only nine of the top 20 in the world playing this week, look for even more coverage of Tiger and Phil. Luckily people never put much expectation on these two, so they'll probably be in a little different situation at Bay Hill.
