Honda Classic 2022: Preview, betting tips & how to…


This week the PGA Tour moves on to PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens for the 2022 Honda Classic.

First held in 1972 as the Inverrary Classic, it has been sponsored by Honda in various guises since since 1982. 

Some of the biggest names in the game are among the past winners, including Jack Nicklaus, who with victories in 1977 and 1978 is the only player to have won the event two years running. 

Until 2007 it had a reputation for struggling to attract the best players, but since making the Champion Course at PGA National its permanent home that year it has tended to feature strong fields. 

Traditionally it has been the first event of the year to be held in Florida following the PGA Tour’s “West Coast Swing”. 

Here’s everything you need to know to follow the action this week…
