We want your Honda Classic experience to be the best possible! Planning ahead will allow you to make the most of the day and ensure you don’t miss a single swing of your favorite golfer.
Thursday and Friday pairings are determined before the tournament begins, with each golfer playing one day in the morning and the other day in the afternoon. Saturday and Sunday pairings are based on a player’s score, with the leaders teeing off last.
You can find each day’s pairings online as well as in the sports section of the Palm Beach Post. At the tournament, pairings sheets with tee times and the order of the groups along with the course map can be found in the Spectator Guides which will be available free of charge. The Spectator Guides are located at the tournament entrance and clearly indicated locations on the tournament grounds.
At the tournament, check the scoreboards to find out who the leaders are and where they are on course. Standard bearers will follow each group holding up the player’s names. You can also spot a player by his caddie who wears the pro’s name on his vest.
How do you plan to watch your favorite players on the course—”Parade Style” or “Cross-Country Style”? Pick a spot and watch the field pass by (“Parade Style”) or follow a particular player or group around the course (“Cross-Country Style”). Arrive early to reserve a spot, especially if you plan on watching the tournament “Parade Style.”
