Josh Culp



Tony Finau (8,900) - The big hitter has top 15s in three of his last four starts. He gained 5.1 strokes on approach in his last appearance at Bay Hill (2017).

Matthew Fitzpatrick (8,500) - The Englishman has gained strokes putting in 12-of-16 rounds played at Bay Hill Club & Lodge.

Maverick McNealy (7,400) - The youngster finished T46 at Bay Hill in 2016. This time he arrives on the heels of 11 straight cuts made.

Adam Scott (9,700) - The Aussie has won two of his last three worldwide starts. Plenty of confidence as he tries to improve upon his pair of third-place finishes at the API. 

Tyrrell Hatton (8,100) - The Englishman finished T4 in his Bay Hill debut (2017) and he's returned with finishes of T69 and T29. Returned from a wrist procedure with a top 10 at the WGC-Mexico Champioship.

Ryan Moore (7,400) - Big hitters have historically feasted on Bay Hill but Moore has his fair share of success as well. The straight shooter is 8-for-10 at the API with three finishes of T12 or better. 



Henrik Stenson (10,500): The local resident has top 20s in seven of his last eight starts at Arnie's Invite.

Emiliano Grillo (8,400): His putter has been a mess for a year now but he popped with a T3 at the Puerto Rico open just two weeks ago so his confidence tank isn't too low. The Argentine has finished top 30 in all three trips to Bay Hill.

Jason Day (10,900): A past champ at Bay Hill (2016). He arrives with top 20s in two of his last three starts.

Carlos Ortiz (8,400): Enters with three straight top 30s and he's finished top 30 in both of his API visits.

Kevin Na (9,200): A sneaky course horse at Bay Hill with five top 15s over his last nine trips here. 

Rory McIlroy (12,200): He's King of the Golf World right now and there is no reason to back off now. He won here two years ago.

Adam Scott (43): The Aussie has finished third-place here on two occasions (2004, 2014). He's won two of his last three worldwide starts. 

Henrik Stenson (36): A home game for the Swede. He's 10-for-11 here with five top 10s. 

Tony Finau (39): Making his first start here since 2017. He's improved on each visit to Bay Hill (MC, T43, T28). 

Collin Morikawa (36): Already saw this course in 2018 when he finished T64 as an amateur. He's as steady as they come since turning pro. 

Max Homa (25): The Cali native has career-best form, can it continue as we move from West to East? 

Carlos Ortiz (20): It's a comfortable venue for Ortiz who arrives with finishes of T21 and T29 in two trips to Bay Hill.
