Woods to join 2 big hitters at Bay Hill

Tiger Woods will join two of the longest hitters on the PGA Tour during the first two days at Bay Hill.

Woods is in the same group with Gary Woodland and Dustin Johnson at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Both are on the A-list of big hitters.

Johnson is No. 2 in driving distance, while Woods is 13th. At the Chevron World Challenge, Johnson teed off on the 11th hole while Woods was on the 17th tee. He watched Johnson pound a tee shot and shook his head.

Woodland is No. 8, although he has been hitting more irons off the tee this year.

Woodland hit a 337-yard drive uphill on the par-5 fifth hole in winning at Innisbrook last week.

The trio tees off at 12:56 p.m. on Thursday.
