EVENT: Honda Classic (Thurs-Sun)

WHY WE’LL WATCH: Hardly a star-studded field, but it’s always fun to see which pros can navigate this treacherous course and survive the “Bear Trap” (holes 15-17).

COURSE INFO: The Champion golf course at National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla., is a beast. With water and bunkers lurking, this Nicklaus design has played as the most difficult non-major course seven of the last 10 years.

FAVES: Sungjae Im (+1000) conquered this course in 2020. Shane Lowry (+1600) was runner-up last year. Third fave is … Aaron Wise (+2200).

BET TO CONSIDER: Chris Kirk 72-hole Match Bet (-140) vs. Thomas Detry (-105). Kirk is frighteningly accurate off the tee and has the up-and-down skills to save par.
