As well as the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the PGA Tour is also in Puerto Rico this week for the Puerto Rico Open, where a number of recognisable names will be featuring.

Last year, it was Branden Grace who claimed an emotional victory, with an eagle-birdie finish giving him a tight one-shot win over Venezuelan, Jhonattan Vegas, who had been leading for the majority of the final round before Grace's superb finish.

The win came just a month after the South African had lost his dad to Covid, with Grace stating: "It was an emotional day. I thought about him a hell of a lot out there, and especially -- the last tee shot, I was really struggling the last hole, because I knew he was watching over me. I knew he was guiding me. And I know he's in a better place now, but we miss him dearly. And it's just been -- it's been a great way to a -- a tough time that we have had the last couple months."

Although Grace won't be returning to defend his title, there are still a number of high profile names teeing it up at the Grand Reserve Country Club, with a mix of former Major winners and Rookies vying for the title that was first established in 2008.

He currently plays at Witney Lakes in Oxfordshire and his favourite player is Rory McIlroy, despite nearly being struck by his second shot at the 17th during the 2015 BMW PGA Championship.
