The world’s best PGA Tour players have convened at PGA National Resort & Spa for the annual Honda Classic through March 21. Known as a premier event in the Palm Beaches, the golf spectacle will look a bit different this year to ensure a safe fan and player experience. A reimagined Bear Trap at the seventeenth hole, which typically winds around the sixteenth green and seventeenth hole tee box, will feature three separate socially distanced blocks of two- and four-seat sections. On Sunday, spectators can join at the eighteenth hole when the champion is crowned. Last year’s winner was 22-year-old South Korean Sungjae Im, who won by one shot over Canadian Mackenzie Hughes. Im will return this year, joined by local favorites including Rickie Fowler, Daniel Berger, and Brooks Koepka. This year’s purse is set for $7.2 million, with the winner’s share being $1.2 million. As always, host organization Children’s Healthcare Charity will contribute net proceeds from the tournament to numerous South Florida nonprofits, including Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.
