Honda Classic Golf Odds
The Honda Classic is a PGA tournament played during March at the Champion Course at PGA National Resort and Spa in Florida.
The Champion Course is one of the trickiest courses a professional will undertake on the PGA Tour, and it was the home of the Ryder Cup in 1983 and also hosted the 1987 PGA Championship. Jack Nicklaus and his well renowned design team reworked the course in 2002 to bring it into the 21st century.
They installed the signature element of the course, the Bear Trap, which is comprised of three holes from 15-17, all of which involve dangerous water hazards and significant wind being blown in off the coast.
For those wishing to bet on the Honda Classic, we offer a range of golf free bets to pick up for those wishing to place a bet.
There are plenty of markets to choose from, with outright winner to top 6 finishes, which are available at quarter the odds each way.
It has been ranked the second toughest golf course on the PGA Tour for the last two seasons. As with many of the major tournaments on the PGA Tour, the Honda Classic is run very much with a charitable organisation in mind. The tournament raises money for under-privileged children in the Palm Beach-area.
The 2011 event was responsible for raising over $1.2million for local children and in total has donated $18million since the start of the decade. The tournament itself and the way the course is set up certainly favours players whose strengths lie on the greens.
The fairways are tight and the huge greens have lots of contours and roll offs. Rory McIlroy became the seventh international winner of the event since 2005 in 2012, following on from Padraig Harrington (2005), course record holder Luke Donald (2006), Ernie Els (2008), Y.E Yang (2009), Camilo Villegas (2010) and Rory Sabbitini (2011).
The Northern Irishman held a huge advantage going into the final round and even a late surge from Tiger Woods, who carded an extraordinary 62, couldn't de-rail the World No.1 from claiming his fifth title of his career.
