2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational: Tee times, pairings, TV schedule for Thursday

Tiger Woods can once again become the No. 1 golfer in the world with a win at Bay Hill, where he has seven career titles, including one last year.


Bad news, rest of the golf world. Tiger Woods is Tiger Woods again. And now he's headed back to Bay Hill, where he's looking to win for an eighth time and pull off a repeat of his 2012 title.

Although he didn't win any majors in 2012, Woods was still one of the best golfers in the world, finishing in the top-10 nine times and winning three tournaments. This year, he's won two events in four tries. That's not fair. And the wins came at two of the courses where he'd had huge amounts of previous success, Torrey Pines and Doral. He's absolutely dominated Bay Hill over the course of his career, and that makes him a heavy, heavy favorite to win this weekend. In a panel of experts at the PGA Tour's website, ten of 11 picked Woods to win. And as Emily Kay of SB Nation notes, he'll be No. 1 in the world again for the first time in a long time with a win in Orlando.

Here's a look at the tee times for Thursday's opening round, where Tiger is paired up with Ernie Els and Justin Rose. Other notable trios include Sergio Garcia, Phil Mickelson and Brandt Snedeker, as well as Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson and Bill Haas.
