HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -- There's a classic photo of Arnold Palmer at the winner's podium, the championship trophy situated to his right, and the famous candy-striped Harbour Town lighthouse nearly perfectly centered.

The King won the inaugural Heritage Classic in 1969 at the age of 40 and it was so long ago the pictured lighthouse is a mere skeleton of a structure under construction. If his grandson, Clemson alum Sam Saunders, can become the second family member to win the now RBC Heritage, the fabled lighthouse overlooking the 18th would again feature a different look. The tower is currently wrapped in tartan to honor the event's 50th anniversary.

(COVINGTON, GA) – Bridgestone Golf – innovator of premium golf balls, clubs and accessories – unveils the TOUR B XS Tiger Woods Edition golf balls, a collaboration with the 14-time major championship winner that benefits the TGR Foundation, which receives a portion of all proceeds.
 
The golf balls feature a custom “TIGER” logo that replicates how Woods marks his competition golf balls and distinct packaging to highlight the charitable benefits and limited, special-edition product. From a performance perspective, the Tiger Woods Edition ball is identical to the standard TOUR B XS model, which Woods currently uses on the PGA Tour. The new line ($49.99/dozen) will be carried at participating national retailers beginning April 1st.
 
"We worked closely with the Bridgestone team to come up with a concept that benefits both golfers and my TGR Foundation, which is very important to me,” says Woods. “The TOUR B XS easily outperforms any ball I’ve ever played. It is incredibly long, but offers excellent feel and spin around the green, which makes me confident in any situation.”
 
With a decorated career that includes 14 major wins and a record run of 683 weeks as the world’s top-ranked golfer, Woods transitioned to the TOUR B XS before the 2017 Hero World Challenge and has since recorded his best professional finishes since 2013. Beyond playing Bridgestone balls in competition, Woods appears prominently in the company’s marketing campaigns, including the new “You’re Back THERE!” video, available here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8c1M4UXBEtg.

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- The loudest roars at Bay Hill were for Tiger Woods. The last ones were for Rory McIlroy.

McIlroy left some indelible images of his own Sunday at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a back-nine charge that would have made the King proud, and a final putt on the 18th green that a delirious gallery had seen for so many years from Woods.

McIlroy ran off five birdies over his last six holes and closed with an 8-under 64 for a three-shot victory. He won for the first time since the Tour Championship on Sept. 25, 2016, the day Palmer died.
