This week, the PGA TOUR headed to PGA National for The Honda Classic.

Sepp Straka returned and was looking to become the tournament’s first repeat winner since Jack Nicklaus in 1978. Straka staged a five-shot comeback in the final round last year to win his first event on the PGA TOUR.

Billy Horschel and 2020 tournament champion Sungjae Im were the two highest-ranked players in the field while Adam Svensson was the top-ranked player in this season’s FedExCup Standings competing this week.

Svensson calls the Palm Beach area home and won the 2015 Korn Ferry Tour Q-School Finals at PGA National by seven strokes.

He also earned his first PGA TOUR win this season at The RSM Classic.

A pair of two-time DP World Tour winners in Adrian Meronk and Min Woo Lee are in the field on exemptions.

Other names to look out for included Padraig Harrington, Luke Donald, Webb Simpson, Danny Willett and Shane Lowry.
