Description The Honda Classic is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour in south Florida. It was founded 48 years ago in 1972 as Jackie Gleason's Inverrary Classic, and is usually the first of the Florida events in late winter following the "West Coast Swing."
National Airlines was the sponsor in 1973 with Gleason and American Motors Corporation (AMC) backed it in 1981. Since 1982, American Honda Motor Company (Honda) has been the title sponsor.
The prize money is comparable to other regular PGA Tour events. The total purse was $6.4 million in 2017, with a top prize of $1.152 million (this can be contrasted to the total purse in 1981 of $300,000 (the equivalent of only $843,668 in 2019 dollars). The original winner's share of $52,000 in 1972 made it one of the richest stops on tour, greater than for any of the four majors; it was more than double that of the Masters, which had a first prize of $25,000 in 1972
South Korea’s Sungjae Im claimed his first PGA Tour title in the Honda Classic as overnight leader Tommy Fleetwood had to settle for a tie for third place. Im carded a closing 66 at PGA National to finish six under par and a shot ahead of Canada’s Mackenzie Hughes, with Fleetwood another stroke back following a final round of 71.
