DRAFT PGA Recommended Plays: Honda Classic

23 February 2018

Was T14 here in 2017, 2nd in 2016 and T8 in 2014, so PGA National clearly is a course that suits his game.

Tiger Woods hits on of a bunker on the 10th hole during the Honda Classic Cares Pro-Am at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida on February 21, 2018.

His decision to play in Florida this week marks his first attempt at back-to-back tournaments since 2015 as he vies to become a contender again in the wake of spinal fusion surgery last April. "The 17th here is an incredibly hard shot under a lot of pressure", said Padraig Harrington, a two-time Honda victor. Length off the tee is not almost as important as placement, so I would expect the victor to hit a high percentage of fairways and greens, taking advantage of a hot week of putting. Nearly every time Woods turned to the big stick, he came away with a big miss. Sizes up a birdie putt of 13 feet, nine inches, settles himself over the ball and tugs it just slightly, settling for a par to remain at even par with one hole remaining. It's a tough golf course and it magnifies if your game's off just a touch.

Yanks get Drury, Arizona acquires Souza
Martinez, who signed a five-year deal with the Boston Red Sox on Monday, but Souza is under team control for three more seasons. The Yankees are sending second base prospect Nick Solak to the Rays and pitching prospect Taylor Widener to Arizona.

With eight holes remaining in his second round at the Genesis Open, Tiger Woods sat inside the eventual cut line of 2 over par, having managed to nearly balance 4 bogeys with 3 birdies to stand at 1 over par. The ball trickled off the green, but the shot was pure. The Northern Irishman won the Honda Classic in 2012 but has missed the cut at PGA National on his last two competitive visits.

Stats-wise this season, he's 9th for Driving Accuracy, 4th for Greens In Regulation, 11th for Scrambling and 8th for Strokes Gained: Putting so take out big hitting - something that isn't crucial on PGA National's Champions Course this week - and Harman is doing everything right. "I'm still learning what that feels like under the gun". Marc Leishman and Luke Donald have good history on this course due to their ability to play in windy conditions.

Woods has not said his schedule beyond this week. "Today was not easy".

Louisville must vacate title, wins; pay fine
The ruling also states that Louisville must repay money earned through its appearances at the NCAA tournament in years 2012-15. Instead, it was ignored". "Like you, I believe the university needed to appeal the decision as strongly as possible".

While last week's good performers from Oman can be expected to go well in Qatar, the Honda Classic offers a chance for those more used to Bermuda greens to impress. It was tough all around today.

The only hole he butchered was the par-5 third.

His only other bogey was on the par-4 16th, where despite finding the fairway with a 2-iron, he tugged 7-iron into the sand and didn't get up and down.

Police tighten security following school shooting threat
Their investigation is ongoing. "As expected, there's a lot of anxiety in view of what happened in Florida last week", she said. The sheriff's department added it planned to place extra deputies on campus and increase patrols around the school on Tuesday.

Former Honda Classic victor Rory McIlroy (2012) is a 10/1 shot to become the fifth player to win here multiple titles, while Padraig Harrington (2005 & 2015) is a 200/1 outsider to become the first man to triumph at the event three times, while the Irishman is 16/1 to finish in the top-10.
