Honda Classic Golf TicketsEstablished in 1972, the Honda Classic began as a golf event organized by actor Jackie Gleason. Today, this Palm Beach County tradition brings together the top-ranked 144 golfers from around the world to compete as part of the PGA Tour. The week-long Honda Classic occurs annually the final week in February. Golfers compete in 72 hole stroke play for a prize purse of $7 million divided between the winner and the top players. The overall winner of the Honda Classic is awarded $1.26 million making it one of the most prestigious events in the world of golf. The winner is also awarded with 500 Federal Express Cup points. With a total prize purse of $60 million distributed between the winner of the Cup and the top 150 golf pros, the Fed Ex Cup is the top prize of the PGA tour. The Cup winner receives both a trophy and $15 million. Each round of play during the Honda Classic occurs at the PGA National Resort & Spa on its Champion course. Even though the Honda Classic has found a sponsor in Honda, the event has kept its original mandate as a charity benefit, as founder Jackie Gleason intended. You can follow all of this high-stakes golf action live when you purchase your tickets at StubHub.
Who are some of the past champions of the Honda Golf Classic?In recent years, some of the top names in golf have battled back and forth for the title with no single golfer winning it two years in a row. The 2019 champion was Keith Mitchell, while Justin Thomas won in 2018 and Rickie Fowler in 2017. Other recent winners have included Adam Scott, Padraig Harrington and Russell Henley. While every year’s competition has held plenty of excitement, Harrington’s win in 2015 came as a particular surprise since he had not won on the PGA Tour in nearly seven years at the time.
What is the Honda Classic golf course like?The PGA National Resort & Spa’s Champion Course offers sweeping views of Palm Beach along with one of the toughest traps in golf, nicknamed the Bear Trap, and a par 70 course. Its 7,110 yards of grassy turf pose some of the most challenging play on the PGA Tour.

It primarily donates to the organization founded by golf great Jack Nicklaus, the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation.

What are some of the competition highlights of the Honda Golf Classic?The 2019 Honda Classic saw Keith Mitchell top two of golf’s top-ranked players and local pros Brooks Koepka and Rickie Fowler. Their experience playing the course did no good when both birdied at a critical juncture. Mitchell ended with a final score of nine-under-par, winning his first PGA Tour event in the process. In 2016, it seemed all over on the 17th hole, when Adam Scott landed a quadruple-bogey, but a superb 18th hole performance saw him triumph over Sergio Garcia by a single stroke. Sometimes, players have to battle Mother Nature and each other as occurred in 2011 when high winds plagued Palm Beach the week of play. The high winds affected play to point that the field stroke average of the entire playing field was more than 2 ½ shots above par. Rory Sabbatini only scored one above par on the first day of play though and managed six under par, four under par and par on the remaining three days of competition to win it all.
