Honda Classic

This week we Tee It Up-Honda Classic. The PGA Tour heads to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida for the Honda Classic at the PGA National Golf Club. The event was founded in 1972 as the Jackie Gleason’s Inverrary Classic. The event typically kicks off the “West Coast Swing” of the PGA Tour. Honda Motor Company has served as the title sponsor of the event since 1982. When it was founded the event was known to have one of the richest purses on the tour, $260,000 with a $52,000 winner’s share. In 2007 the event designated the Nicklaus Children’s Health Care Foundation as its main beneficiary. The prize money is comparable to other PGA Tour events, outside of the “big nine.” In 2017 the purse was $6.4 million with a winners share of $1.152 million.
