This may begin to sound like a broken record – another week in the books and another Jon Rahm win. Rahm continued his dominating play last week, winning the Genesis Invitational by two strokes for his third win of the season and 10th of his career — the win has also propelled him to the new No. 1 Official World Golf Ranked player.

To put his dominance into focus, he has played in six tournaments this season, won three of them and finished in the top 10 in the other three. Luckily for the field this week, Jon Rahm is not in it

We have officially concluded the west coast swing and are onto sunny Florida for the next four weeks. This week’s tournament is the Honda Classic at PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

The best bets and resources to make you more profitable

2023 Honda Classic

  • February 23-26, 2023
  • PGA National Resort, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
  • Purse: $8,400,000
  • Defending Champ: Sepp Straka

The Honda Classic has been played since 1972 under various names and courses, but since 2007, the tournament has been played at the Champion course on PGA National Resort. The tournament is a 72-hole, stroke play tournament, with a cut after 36 holes down to the top 65 players and ties.

Weather in the Sunshine State should not disappoint this week, forecasting sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-80s but the wind will likely be a factor.

What Course Is the Honda Classic Held At?

The Honda Classic is played at the difficult Champion course on PGA National Resort. The course was designed by George and Tom Fazio in 1981 for major tournament play and held the PGA Championship in 1987.

The course was redesigned by the great Jack Nicklaus in 2014 and is one of the more challenging courses on tour. Water comes into play on seemingly every hole and where there isn’t water, you’ll find bunkers and narrow fairways in landing areas.

The Champion measures in at 7,125 yards, par 70. Much like last week, the course will require players to use every club in the bag and distance will be a perk. The par 3s can make or break a player’s chances this week. Accuracy will be imperative to avoid water and bunkers and hitting Greens in Regulation. Putting always plays a factor but greens should not be extremely difficult this week.

2023 Honda Classic Predictions & Picks

Sungjae Im Tournament Winner | +850 at BetMGM

There is a reason Sungjae Im is the favorite this week. He has won here in 2020 and was T8 in 2021. He missed the cut last year but has been playing consistently well from the end of last season to now. He is 14th in Stroke Gained: Total and has the ability to win again here.

Shane Lowry Top 5 Finish | +350 at BetMGM

Shane Lowry finished runner-up in the rain at last year’s Honda Classic and has made the cut every time he played so he knows his way around the course. The field is not as deep this week and should leave the door open for a strong finish for Shane.

Matt Kuchar Top 10 Finish | +220 at BetMGM

Matt Kuchar played very well last week at the Genesis Invitational finishing eight and has two top 10 finishes in his last four starts. His game should set up nicely on this course and see him finishing top 10 again this week.
