How To Watch The Arnold Palmer Invitational

Yes you read that right, 44 of the world's top-50 golfers will be competing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard this week. Once again we will expect a battle for not only the trophy at the end of the week but also the world number one spot, currently held by Jon Rahm, who has won three times in six PGA Tour starts. Looking to knock him off are Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy, both players with victories of late. 

Don't expect incredible low scoring this week though as the last two events have been some of the toughest conditions of the year. The 2022 final-round scoring average was 75.48, compared to 75.49 a year prior. Scottie Scheffler won at 5 under last year, while Tyrrell Hatton won at 4 under in 2020 – the highest winning total since 1983. 

It should be gripping television and one of the best ways to watch is through ESPN+. Below are all the details on the comprehensive streaming service.
