The Honda Classic returns to PGA National Resort & Spa this month, bringing the world’s best golfers to The Palm Beaches March 15-21. This year’s PGA Tour event, played in Palm Beach Gardens, will feature homegrown stars Brooks Koepka and Daniel Berger. Koepka, who was the No. 1 player in the world for eight months leading into last year’s Honda Classic, grew up in Lake Worth and attended Cardinal Newman High School before attending Florida State University (FSU). Berger is another Palm Beach County standout who attended Palm Beach Gardens Dwyer High School before also playing at FSU.

This year’s Honda Classic offers a limited allotment of tickets for public sale as it continues its plan to welcome a reduced number of fans to this year’s tournament. However, fans will be able to experience the action from the comfort and safety of their homes with live televised coverage of the event on NBC’s Golf Channel. Honda Classic Executive Director Kenneth R. Kennerly wants to “do everything possible to make sure that [the event] will be a great experience,” noting that organizers are “being conservative in our planning as we continue to navigate the pandemic.”
For example, The Bear Trap - which usually winds around the 16th green and 17th hole tee box area - is being re-imagined into three sections with limited seating in socially-distanced blocks of two and four seats.
