Tiger Woods to play The Honda Classic

 

Special to the Miami Herald

Tiger Woods, the No. 1 player in the world, will be playing in The Honda Classic again this year.

The tournament will be played February 27 through March 2 at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens.

“The Honda Classic is close to my home, and I want to support it whenever I can,” said Woods, who will be making his third consecutive appearance in the tournament.

Last year, Woods finished tied for 37th at the Honda. The year before in 2012, he shot a spectacular 62 on the final day but finished two strokes behind Rory McIlroy.

“We couldn’t be more thrilled to learn that Tiger will be playing The Honda again,” said tournament executive director Ken Kennerly.

The Honda for 2014 now has five top-10 players in the world competing with Woods, No. 2 Adam Scott, No. 6 Zach Johnson, No. 7 Rory McIlroy and No. 9 Sergio Garcia.
