Honda Classic Preview

Ah yes, I'm taking the easy way out today and giving you some Honda Classic info put together by the Tour. This is the PGA Tour's preview of the Honda Classic, the first event on the Florida Swing.

Guess who the defending champion is?


This article provides all kinds of interesting tidbits about the event, including the TV and Sirius/XM radio schedules.

The notorious Bear Trap takes center stage this week. Holes 15, 16 & 17 tend to decide the winner, as noted in this paragraph from the PGA Tour's Power Rankings article for this week:
Holes 15, 16 and 17 at the Champion Course at PGA National Resort & Spa -- a par 4 sandwiched by a pair of devilish par 3s -- averaged 10.391 last year. In 2011, the same holes registered an aggregate average of 11.178. Over four rounds, that equates to a difference of 3.148 strokes.
The Power Rankings article has quite a bit of info about how the Bear Trap has helped choose the winner in the last few years, as well as handicapping the field. Charl Schwartzel is their top pick. (I guess they read my blog the last few weeks.)

Just a quick note: None of last week's four finalists are in the field... but Ben Crane's there, so we got that going for us. Put on your leotards and release your inner snake shaker!
