After back-to-back designated events and a long run on the West Coast, the PGA Tour is headed to Florida for the next month, starting with the Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens.
Due to its place in the schedule, the field is underwhelming.
Sungjae Im and Billy Horschel are a few of the big names while Sepp Straka returns to defend his title.
This year will mark the end of Honda’s sponsorship of the event as the Tour narrows down the list of potential replacements.
Pierceson Coody, the 2022 PGA Tour University No. 1 and two-time Korn Ferry Tour winner, will make his first start on Tour as a professional.

Thanks to the volatility of PGA National, course history means little this week. Every single champion going back to 2010 has missed a cut here within 3 years of winning.
