Tiger Woods' victory at Bay Hill has produced the highest overnight television rating since the U.S. Open.
Woods made up a five-shot deficit Sunday and won the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a birdie on the last hole.
NBC Sports says the final round drew a 4.9 overnight rating with
a 10 share. According to Nielsen Media Research, that's the highest
rating of any golf tournament since the U.S. Open in June. Woods won that tournament in a playoff.
The Bay Hill rating was up 23 percent from last year and attracted more viewers than the British Open and PGA Championship last year when Woods did not play because of knee surgery.
