PGA Tour says “Goodbye West Coast, Hello Florida”

This week’s Honda Classic at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens,Florida marks the end of the PGA Tour’s opening west coast swing and the start of it’s Florida part of the schedule.  The Honda is the first of four straight weeks of Florida golf. Tiger & Rory Rory McIlroy is back to defend his title as is the man who shot 62 on Sunday, Tiger Woods, in an attempt to take the title away from the man who became World #1 with his win. Also playing this week are 11 other golfers ranked inside the top 25 world rankings including Louis Oosthuizen, Justin Rose, Lee Westwood, Keegan Bradley and Dustin Johnson. Jack Nicklaus’s redesign of the Champion Course at PGA National introduced the “Bear Trap”, holes 15, 16 and 17, arguably three of the toughest back-to-back-to-back holes on the PGA Tour.  Successfully navigating these three holes on Sunday (and the rest of the week) will be the likely reason the champion hoists the trophy on Sunday afternoon.
