SUGAR GROVE, Ill. – Next week, March 14-20, some of the best PGA Tour golfers in the world will converge on Bay Hill Country Club in Orlando, Florida for the annual Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard and a Rich Harvest Farms caddie will have a front row seat to all the action inside the ropes.
Zach Urwiler, a second-year caddie at Rich Harvest Farms and a sophomore at Marmion Academy, will be traveling down to Bay Hill to caddie for amateur Maverick McNealy.
McNealy received an exemption into the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard back in June of 2015, during the Closing Ceremonies of the Palmer Cup, a collegiate version of the Ryder Cup hosted at Rich Harvest Farms. This first-time honor was voted on by his teammates before play began and only came to fruition after Team USA won over Team Europe, 18-12. That meant, Urwiler, who served as McNealy’s caddie during the Palmer Cup, would get the opportunity to do so down in Orlando.
“It’s going to be a blast,’’ said McNealy. “There’s no better feeling than winning with your team, and it was such an honor to be voted to go to Bay Hill.’’
All four rounds of the Arnold Palmer Invitational Presented by MasterCard will be broadcasted live on the Golf Channel. Tune in 2:00 PM (ET) on Thursday and Friday, and 12:30 PM (ET) on Saturday and Sunday to catch all the action. NBC will be broadcasting the event on Saturday and Sunday as well at 2:30 PM (ET).
