NOTES
The No. 1 player in the world anchors yet another strong field this week on the PGA Tour. Martin Kaymer accepted a sponsor`s invitation to play this week. He will join defending champion and FedExCup winner Jim Furyk, Paul Casey, teenage sensations Matteo Manassero and Ryo Ishikawa as well as WGC-Cadillac Championship winner Nick Watney. Last year, Furyk held on (barely) for his first PGA Tour win since 2007. It was his 14th tour win and first since the 2007 Canadian Open. This victory last year propelled Furyk into a big year. He won the Heritage and finished off the season with a victory at the Tour Championship and the ensuing $10 million FedExCup title. This is the third straight week in Florida for the PGA Tour, although most of the tour was at the Puerto Rico Open last week. With the Masters a little over three weeks away, this starts a serious gear up for Augusta. Golf Channel has the broadcast on Thursday and Friday, then NBC takes over on the weekend. Next week is the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. Ernie Els hoisted the trophy last year, but Tiger Woods is expected to play at an event he won six times.
