When it was founded in 1966, the tournament was initially called the Florida Citrus Open Invitational. Since Arnold Palmer took ownership of the resort in the mid-70s, the event has grown into one of the most-watched tournaments in the sport. So far, the world’s No.1 and two-time defending Arnold Palmer Invitational Champion, Tiger Woods, will return alongside reigning Masters Champion Adam Scott and reigning US Open Champion Justin Rose to the grounds in 2014. Woods has won eight times (sharing the record with Sam Snead) at the API, and is a heavy favorite heading into the 36th event, with hopes of securing an unprecedented nine wins.
