Arnold Palmer Invitational 2019: Tee times for Round 1, TV schedule, live stream from Bay Hill | Golf
Those who had hoped Tiger Woods would participate in the 2019 Arnold Palmer Invitational are out of luck.
Woods will miss the tournament — which takes place in his home state of Florida at Orlando’s Bay Hill Club and Lodge — due to a neck strain. He made the announcement on his Twitter account Monday, abruptly putting a hamper on what had been a smooth start to Woods’ 2019 tournament schedule.
1) Unfortunately due to a neck strain that I’ve had for a few weeks, I’m forced to withdraw from the API. I’ve been receiving treatment, but it hasn’t improved enough to play. My lower back is fine, and I have no long-term concerns, and I hope to be ready for The Players.

Even without Woods, who has won the event eight times, most recently in 2013, several of the standard big-name golfers will still be playing in the tournament, including defending champion Rory McIlroy, whose last PGA win came at Bay Hill.
Here is everything you need to know about the Arnold Palmer Invitational, including how to watch live on TV and stream online, as well as the tee times, purse and past winners.

Arnold Palmer Invitational purse, winnings
The total purse for the event is $9,100,000, the second-highest total thus far on the PGA calendar, behind only the WGC-Mexico. McIlroy took home $1.6 million when he won last year, so expect the winner’s prize to be slightly higher this year.
