Honda Classic 2011 PGA National in Palm Beach

The Honda Classic 2011 is going to be the first tournament of the PGA Tour’s “Florida Swing”.  The PGA National Resort & Spa’s Champion course in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida is the venue for the Honda this year – and – unlike most PGA events, the Honda Classic will allow fans to carry and use their cell phones.

The tournament promises much excitement as many of the top ranked golfers are already committed to play. Lee Westwood, now ranked number 2 on the Tour, Graeme McDowell number 5 (and who beat Tiger at his home tournament last  December), defending champion Camilo Villegas, Rory Mcllroy and former champions Ernie Els and Mark Wilson, who have won twice already elsewhere earlier this year. Els and Wilson are currently leading the Fed Ex Cup standings and the PGA money list.

Joining them as well is the American young gun Rickie Fowler who is not only a fashion icon on the tour but a fans magnet.  At the Northern Trust Open at the Riviera Country club, Fowler had a flock of young groupies following his every shot! And many fans following him on the course were sporting this famous puma trucker hat. It was really cute!

However, it was confirmed this week that Westwood wasn’t sharp enough to keep his title. His last win on the PGA Tour was in June 2010. Martin Kaymer of Germany has been chasing Westwood in the past couple tournaments and was successful. Kaymer is now ranked as No.1 golfer in the world.

Camilo Villegas

Defending Champion Camilo Villegas

Watch Bill Haas and Jhonattan Vegas too. Both are power players who can hit a long way and both have been going head to head in a few tournaments. Wilson, the 2007 champion of this tournament has already won twice this year on the PGA Tour. We would not be surprised if he picks up his third win of the year. The Honda Classic 2011 is going to be a great event to watch!

Hi Chuck,
Thanks for your comment. I stayed at the PGA resort in Palm Springs and had a a golf clinic there. This was several years ago – just when the PGA took it over. I found it overpriced and way overrated. The program was superficial (the clinic had something like 20 people all learning together with three or four pros who came by occasionally with useless tips) and the resort was not what it was billed to be (they charged $11.00 per day for the newspaper!). I felt they were not well representing the goodwill of the PGA name.
I hope that it has changed since then. Tommy
