The Honda Classic gets underway at Palm Beach Gardens in Florida this Thursday, a tournament steeped in history.

Former winners include the likes of Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller, Fred Couples, Ernie Els and Rory McIlroy, with a selection of the world’s best bidding to join an illustrious list this weekend.

2018 saw Justin Thomas clinch his eighth PGA Tour title after beating fellow American Luke List in a play-off. The pair were tied at eight under par after four rounds as List chased his first win on the PGA Tour, but it was Thomas who triumphed after the first extra hole.

Former PGA Championship winner Thomas heads the betting to retain his title this time around, as he aims to win his first event since the WGC Bridgestone Invitational back in August.

He’s likely to be up against some fierce competitors again this time around, including the in-form Rickie Fowler.

Fowler was victorious in the Phoenix Open at the start of February in dramatic circumstances.

He blew a four-shot lead in bizarre fashion after finding water at the 11th and putting for a triple bogey, before dropping another shot at the next hole. But he recovered well as he birdied both the 15th and the 17th on his way to victory.

Other contenders this week include former winner Adam Scott. The Australian has had three top ten finishes this season and has registered 13 career PGA Tour victories to date.

Back-to-back U.S Open champion Brooks Koepka is highly fancied to pick up his first trophy of the new year, as is Cameron Smith.

The emerging Australian has finished in the top 15 in three of his last four tournaments and arrives on the back of an impressive display in the WGC Mexico Championship. He has now moved inside the top 30 on the PGA Tour and is being tipped as a future major winner.
