The Honda Classic

The TOUR kicks off its Florida Swing with a stop at one of the more difficult tracks the players will face all season: PGA National (Champions Course).

This event is most known for the treacherous stretch from the 15th through 17th holes that played a combined 230 over-par last year and where over 1600 balls have found the water since 2007. Players will now face an even tougher test as they finish the Bear Trap, as the par-3 17th has added additional fan seating in an effort to replicate the success the Waste Management has had with their par-3 16th hole.

THE FIELD

Highlighting the field this week are: Daniel Berger, Rickie Fowler, Tommy Fleetwood, Brooks Koepka, last week’s winner Joaquin Niemann, Patrick Reed, Matthew Wolff and Gary Woodland.
