GolfWRX is live this week from the Champion Course at PGA National Resort and Spa in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.
Jack Nicklaus redesigned the course in 1990, which introduced the “Bear Trap,” consisting of holes No. 15, 16 and 17. The trio of holes has accounted for 18 percent of all bogeys and 32 percent of all double bogeys at the event since it began hosting in 2007.
The field this week features each of the top-seven golfers in the world rankings, and 13 of the top 25. Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson headline the event after sitting out at last week’s match play, while Adam Scott returns to competition in his first tournament since the Sony Open in Hawaii.
At last year’s Honda Classic, defending champion Michael Thompson held off a strong field with par saves down the stretch and a closing birdie to win his first PGA tournament by two shots over Geoff Ogilvy.
Rory McIlroy will seek revenge at PGA National after he withdrew last year citing a toothache. He won the event in 2012 by two shots over Tiger Woods and Tom Gillis.
