2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational Friday tee times, how to watch PGA Tour at Bay Hill

On a day when the winds were down, the scores were low.

After the opening round of the 2024 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida, it’s Shane Lowry atop the leaderboard after an opening 6-under 66. Lowry started the back nine birdie-birdie-eagle-birdie and holds the first-round lead by one over Hideki Matsuyama, winner of the Genesis Invitational, and Justin Lower.

Sahith Theegala, Russell Henley, Sam Burns and Lee Hodges are in a group sitting T-4 at 4 under. Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Will Zalatoris highlight those at 3 under.

Bay Hill, which has been the site of the Tour event since 1979, ranks No. 5 in Florida on Golfweek’s Best list of public-access layouts in each state. It also ties for No. 191 on Golfweek’s Best list of all modern courses in the U.S., and it ties for No. 58 on the list of all resort courses in the U.S.

The purse at the API is $20 million with $3.6 million going to the winner. The winner will also receive 700 FedEx Cup points.
