Five of this week's top six in the Official World Golf Ranking will support the King next month in Orlando, Fla.

A day after Tiger Woods (No. 1) officially committed to the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the tournament also announced that 2013 major winners Adam Scott (No. 2) and Justin Rose (No. 5) will join the fray at Bay Hill.

The trio join Henrik Stenson (No. 3) and Zach Johnson (No. 6) in an impressive field that acts as a tuneup three weeks prior to the year's first major, the Masters.

Woods has won the event eight times, which is tied with Sam Snead for the most in a single event.

Also already having committed to the tournament are Brandt Snedeker, Hunter Mahan, Padraig Harrington and Nicolas Colsaerts.

The tournament is scheduled for March 20-23.
