Plenty of Recent Honda Classic Winners Back in the Fold

Some of the most recent champions at PGA National will be back looking for more glory, as Keith Mitchell (2019), Rickie Fowler (2017) and Adam Scott (2016) will be teeing it up this week. Padraig Harrington, a two-time Honda Classic winner, is also returning to the venue on a sponsor exemption.

Berger has a bit of a home-course advantage at PGA National. Berger calls West Palm Beach home and is no stranger to the track. The American finished T-4 here a year ago and is the highest-ranked golfer in the World Golf Rankings taking part at the Honda Classic.

Americans won the Honda Classic for three years in a row from 2017 to 2019, but 10 of the last 16 champions here have been from outside the United States. There has been only one back-to-back winner in tournament history: Jack Nicklaus in 1977-78. 

PGA National Is No Joke

PGA National was even tougher than normal a year ago, as Sungjae Im’s 6-under winning total marked the second-highest since the tournament moved to PGA National in 2007. 

Im continued his dominance after winning the tour’s Rookie of the Year the season prior, firing a 4-under 66 on Sunday – tied for the round of the day – to win by one stroke over Mackenzie Hughes. 

Im began his round on Sunday by notching four birdies in his first five holes and finished strong with birdies on two of his final holes. He became the seventh South Korean to win on the PGA Tour.

Tommy Fleetwood came in third, while Berger, Lee Westwood, Brendan Steele and Byeong Hun An finished T-4.

Honda Classic Picks

Sungjae Im +1200

While it’s hard to ignore the lack of consecutive winners at the event over the years, Im is a great bet to buck that trend. The 22-year-old’s improved putting is the biggest reason for his climb up the leaderboard last year, and he hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down ahead of this year’s Honda Classic.

Im has made the cut in each of his eight showings in 2021 and this is the weakest field on the PGA Tour in weeks. He looks like a great wager to defend his title, even though the odds aren’t great at +1200.

Chez Reavie +10000

Speaking of quality putting, Reavie’s prowess on the greens makes him an attractive long-shot bet at +10000. Reavie is also one of the most accurate players in the field, which is another strong stat needed to find success at PGA National. He’s not going to be a popular pick at sportsbooks, but he’s undervalued and could pay off huge if he can catch lightning in a bottle in Florida.


Props

Golf is unique for many reasons, but one of them is the significant number of betting props available at weekly tournaments. The Honda Classic is no different.

Sportsbooks are offering odds on things like whether there will be a hole-in-one, OVER/UNDERs on the winning score for the eventual champion and odds on which players from specific countries will have the lowest score, to name a few.

Like other sports, betting on props is a fun and unique way to enhance your golf gambling experience.

Live Betting

Live Betting is arguably one of the most exciting ways to bet on golf. If the player you placed a pre-tournament bet on is out of the running at any point during the Honda Classic, you can bet on another golfer as the days go by and have another stake in the game.

If there are only a few men in the hunt on the final day, the odds likely won’t be significantly high, but your chances of winning are. We’ve seen this happen multiple times in the PGA Tour’s Return to Golf, as multiple tournaments have gone to a playoff.
