The strength of the field had begun to waver, and without the presence of the King, officials worried the event had lost its clout.

Those worries, at least for 2019, have been alleviated.

The annual Bay Hill event—already boasting commits from eight-time winner Tiger Woods, defending champ Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Bryson DeChambeau—added three more marquee names to the field on Tuesday in Brooks Koepka, Jason Day and Phil Mickelson.

Of particular interest is Mickelson. Though the 48-year-old won the API in 1997, this marks the first time since 2013 that Mickelson will tee it up in Orlando. What this means for his status at the Players Championship—the five-time major winner said he may skip the tour's flagship event—is unknown.

Molinari charges to a 64 to win at Arnie's place.
British Open champion Francesco Molinari rolled in a 45-foot birdie putt on the final hole at Bay Hill that capped off an 8-under 64, taking him from five shots behind to a two-shot victory Sunday in the Arnold Palmer Invitational. RELATED: ARNOLD PALMER INVITATIONAL FINAL SCORES Molinari watched the putt kiss off the flagstick and into the cup, and the normally reserved Italian raised his fist and dropped it downward, knowing that would make him hard to beat. No one got closer than two shots the rest of the way. Matt Fitzpatrick managed only two birdies in his round of 71 to finish second.
