Bryson DeChambeau survived a windy Sunday at Bay Hill to win the Arnold Palmer Invitational by one stroke over Lee Westwood. DeChambeau, a victor at 12-1, made just one bogey (1-under 71) during tough Sunday conditions (field average score of 75.5) and led the field for Strokes Gained: Off-the-Tee and approach proximity for shots of 200-plus yards to the green.
DeChambeau is the second choice on the odds board this week at 14-1 behind OWGR No. 1 Dustin Johnson (12-1). Rory McIlroy, the 2019 Players champion, and Jon Rahm share a 16-1 tag. Xander Schauffele was runner-up in his debut here in 2018 and is slotted in the 20-1 range along with Justin Thomas, who finished third here in 2016.
Viktor Hovland makes his first appearance at TPC Sawgrass and is 25-1, just behind Patrick Cantlay, Collin Morikawa and 2018 Players champion Webb Simpson, both 22-1. Tony Finau (28-1) continues to seek his signature career win or any win on the PGA Tour to shake the "Top 10 Tony" moniker.
Jordan Spieth (30-1) is playing his best golf in almost three seasons and has three top-4 finishes in his last four starts. Hideki Matusyama tied the course record with a first-round 63 last year before the tournament was canceled due to COVID-19; he is 35-1 along with Tyrrell Hatton.
