It's that time of year again, Honda Classic week at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, begins next week on February 25. As you know, it's one of the premier events on the PGA TOUR, and it's also the first one to be played on what has cas to be known as the "Florida Swing." The PGA TOUR's top players, including Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler and Lee Westwood, will compete for a purse that totals more than $5.5 million. The event will be played on the famed Champion course, a Jack Nicklaus signature design, at PGA National. To win, they'll need to negotiate the infamous "Bear Trap" - holes 15 - 17 - arguably the toughest three-hole stretch on the PGA TOUR.

The 2013 Honda Classic will be played the week beginning on beginning, February 25, finishing on Sunday, March 3rd, 2013. For a review of PGA National, The Honda Classic, the Champion Course, and images of the Bear Trap, please check out my full report.
