2023 The Honda Classic Betting

The Honda Classic PGA Tour Betting

The PGA Tour moves to the East Coast in late February with the first event in Florida, The Honda Classic. It has been one of the premier events held in the Sunshine State over the course of the end of the winter but that is likely to change. This will be the last year for Honda as the title sponsor, as they are dropping sponsorship after 2023. Honda has sponsored this event for 42 years, but the PGA’s decision to go with elevated events with bigger prize purses seems to have left this tournament out in the cold. This event takes place right after the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the Genesis Invitational which offer $20 million dollar prize purses and it is followed closely by the Arnold Palmer Invitational and the PLAYERS which also offer big purses. We may see top players skip the Honda Classic this year and going forward. This event takes place at the PGA National Golf Club Champion Course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Sepp Straka is the defending champion.

Catch all of the action at The Honda Classic from Thursday, February 23 through Sunday, February 26.

The Honda Classic has only been held at PGA National since 2007. Prior to that, this tournament has been held all over South Florida dating all the way back to 1972 when Tom Weiskopf won the inaugural event, then known as Jackie Gleason’s Inverrary Classic.

As noted earlier, this event is not an elevated prize pool event, but it still will have a prize purse of over $8 million dollars.

Don't let those scores at the Honda Classic before 2007 when the tourney moved to PGA National fool you. This is a course where, if you break double-digits under par, you're having yourself one heck of a week. In fact, since the move, there have only been five golfers shoot -10 or better to win this event.

2 Padraig Harrington 2005, 2015

It's pretty amazing to think that no golfer has won the Honda Classic more than twice, and there are only four repeat winners. The most recent man to claim a second title in South Florida was Paddy Harrington, and it took him 10 years between his two titles in 2005 and 2015.

Best Winning Tournament Scores

-24 (264) Justin Leonard 2003
-22 (266) Blaine McCallister 1989
-19 (269) Matt Kuchar 2002
-19 (269) Dudley Hart 2000
-19 (269) Hale Irwin 1982

As we said before, these scores aren't really indicative of anything that is probably possible at PGA National. That course just plays far too difficult for anyone to come anywhere near the -24 that Justin Leonard carded in 2003 when The Honda Classic was played at the Country Club at Mirasol, a far easier course also in Palm Beach Garden. The TPC at Heron Bay also provided us with a couple low scores for the Honda Classic, first in 2000 with Dudley Hart, then again in 2002 with Matt Kuchar.
