The Honda Classic – 3 PGA Players To Watch

Sungjae Im – Last years 2020 Honda Classic proceeded the PGA shutdown and Im was our Champion. Im, who only turned professional in 2015 is back in action at this event. His only career victory came from his victory at The Honda Classic in 2020, and he will use the momentum he has gained from THE PLAYERS to try and pick up his second career win on TOUR. (Finished at 17th only 7 shots behind the winner Justin Thomas) He currently ranks No. 18 in the Official World Golf Rankings and 19th in the FedEx Cup race with 799 points.

Adam Scott – Keep and eye on Scott this week as this could be a big week for him. There are just four top-25 players in the world in the field this week, and Adam is one of them. As a past Champion of this Tournament he has strong familiarity with the course and is someone you need to account for when making Fantasy Golf Picks.

Wyndham Clark – Clark was the 54-hole leader in 2019 and has been T-7 and T-11 the last two years at this tournament. First in total strokes gained those two years, second with the short game and putting. T-8 three starts ago at the Genesis Invitational and earlier in the season was a runner-up at the Bermuda Championship.
