Florida Swing Gets Underway At Home Of Bear Trap

The PGA Tour begins its run-up to the first major championship of the year at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens for the Honda Classic. The first event of the Florida Swing, as well as every other non-major or opposite field tournament, can be seen exclusively on PGA TOUR LIVE before television coverage begins.

16 of the top 30 in the FedEx Cup Standings, as well as 23 of the top 50 players in the Official World Golf Rankings, will tee it up at one of the sternest tests on Tour. Many of those highly tauted players will be playing the early portion of their first two rounds on PGA TOUR LIVE.

On Thursday morning, defending champion Adam Scott will be featured along with two-time winner this year, Justin Thomas, three-time major champion Padriag Harrington, two-time major champion Zach Johnson and PGA Tour stalwarts Sergio Garcia and Paul Casey. Similarly on Friday, the likes of Rickie Fowler, Brooks Koepka, Martin Kaymer, Jimmy Walker, Daniel Berger and Hudson Swafford will have their early-morning rounds aired on the streaming service.


This first two rounds of the Honda Classic will be live streamed on PGA TOUR LIVE beginning at 7:00 a.m. EST, giving subscribers 11 hours of live golf that otherwise would go unseen. Through the Tour’s partnership with Twitter, the first hour-plus of the PGA TOUR LIVE broadcast can be seen for free.
