After watching the likes of Tiger Woods, Rory McIlroy and Justin Thomas try to master “The Bear Trap” at PGA National in Palm Beach Gardens in last February’s Honda Classic, local high school golfers will get their shot this weekend.

That when the Columbus, Plantation American Heritage and St. Thomas Aquinas boys’ golf teams along with 19 other teams from around the state will participate in the Honda Classic High School Invitational, a 36-hole event set for this Friday and Saturday on the Champions Course.

There will be 18 girls teams participating as well playing the Fazio Course including two Broward teams, Plantation American Heritage and Archbishop McCarthy.

“The kids are really excited to be playing in one of the top high school golf tournaments in the country,” said Columubs head coach Mike Marinelli. “We are definitely honored just to be invited, not to mention, the kids get to play the same course and conditions that PGA tour professionals play with including one of the toughest three hole stretches in golf (The Bear Trap, 16, 17, 18) designed by Jack Nicklaus himself.”

“This is definitely going to be a challenge that should hopefully prepare us for the upcoming state championships later on this season,” said Columbus junior David Ragan IV. “Of all the courses we will see this year, PGA National will push us to play our best against the best teams in the state and hopefully we can peak at the right time late in the season.”
