2020 Arnold Palmer Invitational Preview

Last week on the PGA Tour, 21-year-old South Korean Sungjae Im picked up the first win of his career, taking the title at the Honda Classic.

“Over in Korea right now, I know a lot of people are dealing with the coronavirus,” Im said. “And it’s kind of a huge deal with everybody. But I’m just glad as a Korean player that I can deliver some good news to the countrymen back home … to do something for the country and make everybody proud.”

Some big names are back on the course this week, including world No. 1 Rory McIlroy. The tournament served as a turning point in McIlroy’s career when he hoisted the trophy back in 2018.

“This was the start of a two-year journey to get back to this point,” McIlroy told reporters Wednesday. “I came here two years ago off the back of a missed cut in Tampa and sort of a little lost with my game — especially a little lost with my putting. And [I] spent an afternoon with Brad Faxon at the Bear’s Club and then came up here and, obviously, something stuck with me from that afternoon and was able to win and that was my first win in 500-whatever days.

“So, I feel like this place is a lot of special memories to me. It was definitely the catalyst to sort of do what I’ve done over the past two years and ascend back to the top of the world rankings. So, it’s good to be back.”

Defending champion Francesco Molinari is back to defend his title, but has hit a rough patch in his game. He’s missed the cut in three of his last four starts.

“I wouldn’t say my confidence is particularly high right now, because I know where my game is at and it’s not where I want it to be,’’ Molinari told The New York Post. “I try to be honest with myself. In golf, it’s never too easy because there’s a part of you that always makes you think you’re close even when you’re not. I wouldn’t say I’m particularly close right now.’’

One player that won’t be in the field is Tiger Woods. It was reported this week that the 44-year-old is still dealing with stiffness in his back.

“He is not going to play,’’ Woods’ agent Mark Steinberg told ESPN Friday. “Back still stiff and just not quite ready.’’
