THE STANDS ARE GOING UP, not many of them, but it’s a start.

The Arnold Palmer Bay Hill Invitational sponsored by Mastercard, to be held in March in Orlando Florida, will have fans.

With upcoming tournaments still shutting out the fans, it’s nice to see things getting back on track.

So maybe it’s not quite yet a full normal, but it’s a step in the right direction.

Arnie would be very proud.

Come April at the Masters Tournament, there will be patrons back on the grounds. But how many is not yet known.

Rumors around Orlando, and none of this is official, but fans at Bay Hill could be anywhere from 5,000 to 8,000 per day. Not exactly a full house, but enough room to properly social distance.

Stay clicked in, Golfers on Golf will pass along fans allowed in numbers as I get them, for various tournaments.
