Florida's PGA National Champion gets better again in Tiger Woods hunt
PGA National’s Champion Course is the host of one of those tournaments (the Honda Classic) that’s desperately trying to woo Tiger Woods. Tournament officials believe they have a real chance because PGA National is in Palm Beach Gardens, close to Tiger’s Jupiter Island compound.
This means that PGA National Champion - already one of the best courses in Florida - keeps getting better. They spend more time tweaking the Champion Course than the Spice Girls have plotting their comeback. The latest significant money move comes in the reshaping and expansion of bunkers on five of the 18 holes and grounds landscaping.
Do flowers really entice Tiger?
Who knows? And you shouldn’t care. The important thing is that PGA National Champion is one of those rare courses that will always be in incredible shape for you because the management is obsessed with getting it recognized as a great course. That’s a win for the common golfer. (Or at least the one who can afford the worthy splurge $250 greens fee).
The more Tiger plays hard to get, the better for the rest of us in this case. If only all courses held hostage by Tiger’s never-tax-himself-playing plan focused on their product as much as PGA National.
I loved PGA National Champion when I played it last winter, and this winter it should be even a little more interesting.
