The PGA National Resort and Spa again played host for The Honda Classic during the last week of February. As is the case every year, the leaderboard was again populated with some of golf’s most recognizable players.
Going into the final round Adam Scott and Sergio Garcia were tied, but that tie would soon be broken as Adam Scott would birdie the first hole. He would birdie the 5th as well giving him a two stroke -lead, but PGA National can jump up and bite you and bite it did as Scott would bogey the 9th and 10th bringing him back to a tie with Garcia, but unfortunately Garcia would bogey the 11th. Scott would birdie the 12th giving him a two stroke lead again.
Garcia would get his first birdie of the day on 14 to bring him back to 9 under. Scott and Garcia would then enter the Dark and Stormy Bear Trap one of the toughest three hole stretches in golf. The 16th provided a challenge for both Scott and Garcia as they would bogey. Garcia would still be two shots back and when he made birdie on 18, Scott had to sweep in a 3 foot putt for par, which he calmly did. Adam Scott celebrated his first win of the year and a win without the long putter.
