By far one of our favorite PGA Tour events of the year, and our reasons are plentiful. The perfect golf course, the perfect crowd and the perfect tournament host, Mr. Arnold Palmer. Obviously missing but close in spirit, Arnie and his Army along with thousands of on-lookers watched another come form behind victory, this time by Italian Francesco Molinari. Lil "Chicco" is stringing together victories and when his putter is butter, there is nothing better on a roll. Congrats to Chicco!
As for Tas-Tee, we were able to attend a few practice days as well as reconnect with fans and players during the tournament days. The course layout at Bay Hill is as fan-friendly as we've seen and there were several natural gathering spots and vantage points to get the best view with the best crowds. We met golf fans from all over the world; England and Switzerland, India and Japan as well as a couple who had traveled from their little home town in east Texas, we hit it off immediately! lol
Given the attractive venue, the spirit of the crowd and the legacy of it's ever-gracious host and namesake, I can honestly say that we felt Arnie's presence this week and that alone would bring our Tas-Tee Team back to Orlando again and again.
Next stop on this Tas-Tee Florida swing, TPC Sawgrass and The Players Championship!
