Honda Classic History
The very first tickets to the Honda Classic were sold in 1972, and it didn't
take long for it to become a staple of the sports scene in West Palm Beach. Justin Leonard's -24 is the record at this one,
though you never know when that record is going to get challenged by another incredible golfer who shows up at the PGA National
Course looking to etch his name in the annals next to all of the other all-time greats. There has never been a better time
to come out and see it for yourself, so don't even think about missing a stroke of the action this spring as the Honda Classic
heats up in West Palm Beach.
Honda Classic Trivia
Did you know Jack Nicklaus is the only player in history
to win this one two straight years?
Back in '77 and '78, Nicklaus was still dominating the game of golf like none other,
and that translated to incredible performances at the Honda Classic. Then called the Jackie Gleason-Inverrary Classic, named
after the famous comedian and entertainer, Nicklaus came to town and won the event with scores of -13 and -12. Two other golfers
have also won more than once, including Mark Calcavecchia and Johnny Miller, though for the most part it has been different
golfers who have stepped up to pull down the title.

feel proud of once you're there, and you'll probably be kicking yourself for not checking this one out much earlier once you're
knee-deep in the heart-pounding excitement that has become standard operating procedure. We all know that there are plenty
of other options for entertainment these days, but there is still no comparison when we're talking about seeing a golfing
event in person and trying to follow the coverage on TV or your disappointing smart phone. When one of your favorite golfers
