Teeing it up for March 18

PGA Tour

Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Fla., Thursday through Sunday.

TV: Thursday and Friday, 2-6 p.m. EDT on the Golf Channel; Saturday and Sunday, 12:30-2:30 p.m. EDT on the Golf Channel and 2:30-6 p.m. EDT on NBC.

Last year: Matt Every came from nine strokes behind on the weekend, shooting 66-70, and held off Keegan Bradley by one stroke to claim his first career PGA Tour victory. Every, who grew up about 90 miles from Bay Hill in Daytona Beach, carded six birdies in his bogey-free third round and had five more though 13 holes Sunday to seize a three-shot lead. Bradley, who closed with a 72, made two late birdies, but Every survived despite making two bogeys on the last three holes. Bradley missed a 30-foot birdie putt on the final hole that would have forced a playoff. Adam Scott, who held a seven-stroke lead after opening with 62-68, played the weekend in 71-76 and faded to third by making two late bogeys to wind up two strokes behind.

LPGA Tour

JTBC Founders Cup at Wildfire Golf Club at JW Marriott Phoenix Desert Ridge Resort and Spa, Thursday through Sunday.

Last year: Karrie Webb of Australia came from six strokes behind in the final round, shooting a blistering 9-under-par 63 to win by one stroke over Stacy Lewis, Lydia Ko of New Zealand, Amy Yang of South Korea, Azahara Munoz of Spain and Mirim Lee of South Korea. Webb, who also won the tournament in 2011, claimed the 41st victory of her LPGA Tour career, tying Babe Zaharias for 10th on the circuit’s all-time list. The 39-year-old member of the World Golf Hall of Fame also came from six shots behind when she captured the inaugural event four years earlier, closing with a 66. The Aussie collected birdies on five on the last six holes last year, sinking a 20-footer on the 18th hole to nail down the victory.
