Tiger Woods is set to make his third appearance of the year tonight as he tees it up in the Honda Classic and try’s to get his golf game in the best possible shape for the US Masters which is fast approaching now.
There is a high quality field out on show this week including Masters champion Adam Scott who will also be using this event to see where his game is at after an extended break from the game.
Woods has only managed finishes of 41st and 80th in his last two outings at Dubai and Torrey Pines respectively and is said to be surprised at well he’s been hitting the ball on the range and in practice.
There has been a lot of heavy rain in Florida recently so the course is expected to be playing a little tougher than normal and the greens are at a very even pace which the players will have to adjust to after playing on fast greens recently. There is more rain forecast today but the rest of the week is looking good.
Michael Thompson won this event last year but has only had two top 10 finishes and the last of those came in June at the Memorial Tournament.
My picks of the week would have to be Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler. Don’t say I didn’t tell you!
