The Honda Classic 2010

Just as the 2010 Olympics wrapped up, another tournament was getting warmed up, with this one being a little closer to home. Palm Beach Gardens is buzzing with Golf enthusiasts for this year’s Honda Classic. $5.6 is at stake — Who will take it all? Will YE Yang defend his title? Or will another PGA champion take over the fame? More importantly — Will you be there to cheer them on? This year’s event combines more than just golf, as there is something for everyone — family activities, beer, a wine tent and fireworks.
