The PGA Tour is back in Florida this week with the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill in Orlando, Florida. The field is not the greatest the tour will see all year, but there are plenty of quality players in the field, including eight that have already won tournaments in 2012.

The biggest name in the field, if not the best player, is Phil Mickelson, who along with everybody else is looking to tune up for the Masters in a few weeks. The highest rated player in the filed is Justin Rose, who is coming off a big win just two weeks ago.

The schedule of events is typical of a big PGA Tour tournament. The Pro-Am will be played on Wednesday, and the tee times for Thursday's first round will be released shortly thereafter.
