Who To Watch & How to Watch — Honda Classic Preview

It was by far his most impressive round in this nascent comeback.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. Better off the tee. His next chip was short again and then finished with a 2 putt for double bogey.

And indeed it was, even if the stats don't jump off the page.

Woods was more accurate off the tee Thursday, hitting 50 percent of the fairways.

Simpson had three of his five birdies on the front nine.

European Tour: Eddie Pepperell, Gregory Havret, and Aaron Rai made the most of calm early morning conditions at Doha Golf Club to set the pace in the opening round of the Qatar Masters at 7-under 65.

Brian Harman: Harman skipped the Genesis Open last week following his MC at Torrey Pines, but with four top 10s in his last six starts we reckon he's one to watch this week. "I felt like I hit the ball really well, and it was tough out there".

"The 16th hole at is a pretty easy golf shot under a lot of pressure".

It used to be that golf decorum dictated spectators be quiet as a church mouse with PGA players at work. "I was very pleased".

The Champion Course here at PGA National is the kind of course that magnifies misses and exposes a player if he's slightly off with his game.

The majority of the high-quality field struggled to get to grips with the blustery conditions and a hard and fast layout at PGA National, with Noren and Webb Simpson leading the way on four under while only 20 of the 144 starters broke the par of 70 on day one.

Add that to his T11 at last year's Honda Classic and he could certainly make a mark. I just needed to get better at it. Both dropped only one shot Thursday, which might have been as great an accomplishment as any of their birdies. But he rinsed a 3-wood trying to reach the par-5 18th in two and wound up with a double bogey. So I don't think it's imperative to, but obviously to get a win under your belt, it does make you feel a bit better going into it. He often hit 3-wood or iron off the tee, including a 5-iron at the 365-yard first. The ball trickled off the green, but the shot was pure. Little mistakes can turn into big numbers. "The 17th here is an incredibly hard shot under a lot of pressure", said Padraig Harrington, a two-time Honda victor. And so did the 6-footer that dropped for a bounce-back birdie.

If I described a hypothetical player to you, say one with two finishes this year and coming off a missed cut, you wouldn't put that player at +5000.

A month later, Snedeker saw significant changes.

The Swede is acclimating to his first year on the PGA Tour and said he planned to play some holes at another golf course in the afternoon to practice the variety of shots he needs to manage his way around PGA National.

"I came over here to try to play some more American-style courses, get firmer greens, more rough, and to improve my driving and improve my long game", Noren said.
