Honda Classic Betting Preview

by WagerHome Blog on February 21, 2023

The PGA Tour concluded its west coast swing with an electric appearance by Tiger Woods at Riviera Country Club. He finished well off the lead, but considering this was his first tournament since last July, we’re going to see great things from Tiger before this year is over.

The Tiger Woods magic was also present in the person of Jon Rahm, who continues to dominate the sport in a way not seen since Woods was in his prime. Rahm has won five of his last nine starts, and all nine of those starts have ended with him in the top-10.

Honda Classic

The PGA Tour heads to Florida for the Honda Classic this weekend, the final Honda Classic to be played. Beginning in 2024 there will be a new title sponsor for this longtime stop on Tour. Part of the reason Honda is pulling out is that because of the schedule, this has become a rest week for most top golfers.

Sungjae Im is the best golfer in the field and the runaway favorite in the field. He missed the cut at PGA National last year, but he was eighth in 2021, and he was the winner here in 2020. Just two weeks ago, he finished T6 at the Phoenix Open, following up a T4 at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Shane Lowry is coming off a T14 at the Genesis Invitational, fueled by a final round 68. Last year at this event, he was the runner-up at -9. Lowry, along with Im, are two of the three top-20 golfers in the World Rankings in the field this week.

The third of those top-20 golfers is Billy Horschel, who is off to a rough start this season. He missed the cut at both the Genesis Invitational and Sony Open. His best finish since the calendar flipped to 2023 was a T30 at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. Horschel has twice finished in the top 10 at this event.

Upcoming PGA Schedule

The course at PGA National is still one of the best on Tour, with 26 different water hazards on the course. But the best golfers in the world are using the shift to the east coast as a chance to rest up for the two big events coming up in March, the Arnold Palmer Invitational and THE PLAYERS Championship at TPC Sawgrass.

This week the field takes a step back in quality, but in the first two weeks of March, it will be the best field seen outside of a Honda Classic major championship.
