Honda Classic Draws Strong Attendance, But Some Players Critical Of Course Condition
Published March 3, 2014
GRASS IS GREENER? In West Palm Beach, Brian Biggane writes the "weather was great, the crowds were fantastic and the field was the best on the PGA Tour this season." But there was "one major problem with this year’s Honda Classic: The fairways were extremely thin on grass." Golfer Rickie Fowler said, "If the golf course was like this every year, I wouldn't be playing." Heavy rains in January "damaged the fairway grass on the Champion course at PGA National, and there wasn’t sufficient time for it to recover." But golfer Adam Scott said, "It’s still a hell of a tournament venue, and look at the field it’s produced this year. It’s just getting stronger and stronger. It sits at a great date on the calendar, and if they can replace the fairways everyone will be very happy to come back” (PALM BEACH POST, 3/3).
