No Tiger? No problem. Bay Hill babe Upton returns


Tiger Woods wasn't on-site at Bay Hill last week, but perhaps an even bigger headliner made back-to-back appearances.

Enter: Kate Upton.

Sports Illustrated model and actress Upton made headlines in 2013 for sharing dinner and a photo-op with The King during the week of the Arnold Palmer Invitational. 

She returned to Bay Hill again this year, only this time, no images of her and Arnie surfaced. Instead, she posted this photo with boyfriend, Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander, to her Instagram account Monday with the caption, "Had so much fun at Arnold Palmer Invitational #bayhill #theking #mattevery."

No Tiger at the tournament was no doubt a downer, but getting a glimpse of Upton on the grounds likely perked The King - and everyone else - right up.
