PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- If you build it, they will come. That’s true of ballparks, and what has become one of the best golf courses and biggest stops for the who’s who in golf. “I think it had to do with the re-do, with Jack (Nicklaus) coming in here and making the golf course more difficult and better,” said Tiger Woods, explaining the influx of talent that has made The Honda Classic a must-play since it moved to PGA National in 2007. “A lot of guys really took notice of that.”

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. -- When Lee Westwood pitched the idea of moving to the U.S. to his family, he wasn't met with much resistance. "It wasn't a tough sell," said Westwood, who settled just down the road at Old Palm in the offseason. "Do you want to go and live by the sea and the sun by a beach? It was a pretty quick take‑up." Now Westwood is hoping the decision will pay off inside the ropes. Twice in the last three years, Westwood has finished in the top 10 at The Honda Classic. The 39-year-old has 22 career wins on the European Tour but just two on the PGA TOUR -- and zero majors.
